Accelerator cable replacement

Accelerator cable replacement

The accelerator cable transmits the movement of the accelerator pedal to the throttle lever in a petrol engine car or the injection pump actuator control arm in a diesel engine car. The steel, braided cable is placed inside a plastic sleeve and equipped with ends suitable for a given car model. The cable requires replacing when it breaks, doesn't work smoothly, gets stuck or is too loose.
