How do i replace a ford focus throtle cable
disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle body. follow the throttle cable around the engine and you will find it goes through the fire wall and connects to the gas pedal. disconnect the cable from the gas pedal and pull out of the cab compartment from engine side. Pay close attention to how you disconnected the cable from the gas pedal and from the throttle body because you will have to reverse this procedure when you install the replacement. You will need an assistant who is pretty flexable to connect the cable to the gas pedal. so let the assistant disconnect the old cable from the gas pedal so he or she will know how to connect the new one back to the gas pedal. It was not an easy project for me and it definitely is not as easy as it seems to be. You will need plenty of time, daylight and patience. The replacement cable may be shorter than the original and that ok. Ford has made sure it will work. Use tie-wraps or zip-ties to hold the new throttle cable back in place around the engin. Good luck.
