Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
The cable seems to be "stretched". Pulling on the release latch under the dashboard does not release it, but I can pull the handle down, out of the way, and pull on the cable with a ViseGrip pliers, and it works. Is there a way to shorten the cable, or do I need to replace it? If it needs to be replace, how do I do that?
Your help will be GREATLY appreciated!
This is not the solution I wanted. My wife was driving to visit our daughter, and the idler pully came apart. She had the vehicle towed to a garage, where they changed the cable, along with repairing the pulley.
I could have fixed it myself, and saved some money, but I didn't get the opportunity.
