hey guys, i have an 82 GL wagon with what i think is a clutch cable issue.
So, without warning, i was diving home when i lost all sense of resistance fom the clutch cable. I checked out the lines and found out that it must be the cable running from the pedal to the shiter-thing on the transmission. when i move the clutch pedal the cable housing moves, but the shifter thing does not. I checked the other cable with a spring, and that has good tension and rebounds back into place. The shifter thing does not move by hand pressure.
So im 99% sure it is the cable that runs directly fom the clutch pedal.
My question now is, how hard is this to replace, what do i need (besides the cable), and how in the hell do i go abou doing this. what tools might i need?
Im currently located in Redmond, WA, so if anyone near here has an idea of how its done, i would GREATLY appreciate it if i didn't have to tow the car all the way back up to Mountlake Terrace where i live.
Anways, most important thing is how do i replace the cable, and wha do i need to do so.
Thanks guys, i really appreciate any ino on this. I cannot survive (or even get to work for that matter) unless this car is working.
