Thanks for the tips Scooby mate much appreciated.
I have had another look today, and I have to say I won't feel at all comfortable doing the job myself. I have attempted to remove the cable from my other manual (for a little bit of practice before I go and buy a cable - it says its easy to remove and refit in the Haynes manual) and it could not be removed, due to some plug in the footarch preventing the end from being slipped through.
Also, looking at the verious little bits on the cable I cant see how I would get it all in and to top things off, I can see anything, whether it be under the car or above the car, where the cable it suppoed to enter the engine bay, I would be very worried about "working blind".
I think this time Haynes have got it very wrong, they describe the job as easy enough for anyone to do, but the lack of being able to see what you are doing, lack of access and also the complications of how it all comes together, is far from easy.
To add to my problems, the only local mobile mechanic listed on Yell.com, does not do clutch cables for some bizarre reason!
So it seems the car is well and truely off the road until I can work something out, as I am not paying the stupid prices recovery firms will charge for delivering the car to my local garage. All this because of a damn clutch cable
Does anyone know of any mobile mechanics who do deal with clutch cables?
