Very easy to do. Take the old one off and you will see how easy. At the carburetor, the cable will be secured by a bracket. Unfasten it there, and then on the carb. roll the throttle back to wide open throttle, cable will be loose, lift it out of the groove it rides in and slide the end out of the throttle lever. At the firewall where cable goes to the gas pedal, there will be a rubber grommet that cable goes through. Just punch the rubber grommet out of the firewall.
Now on the gas pedal attachment, many different ways to secure it. Some just snap into a hole on back of gas pedal. If you can't see how to disconnect, take the gas pedal off-usually held to floor by two screws-and turn the pedal around to see how the cable connects. Once disconnected, the cable can be removed, usually drawn out of firewall on the engine side.
Good luck. Now the next time you have to replace it (like 25 years, !) you will know how to do it. Keep the old Honda running!

Gas Pedal Sticks


When my car had this problem it was frayed cable. The frayed wires can catch on the inside of the cable jacket or at the end of the cable. That would be my suggestion.

Accelerator catches/sticks when depressed. You must then press very hard to get it past that point.


go under the hood and manually move the accelerator to see what is binding it.

If you dont know how to do this then get an assistant to press on the accelerator (car does not have to be on) and whatch for the part that moves as he accelerates. Manually move this to find the binding. Please note that it is possible to have binding with in the cable assembly back to the foot pedal.

Good luck
