How does the break cable go through the shifter?

How does the break cable go through the ergo shifter? I've got it through the hole furthest to the inside, and the cable won't move through it freely.

Go to and click the brake levers of the bike to bring up a list of brake-related info. Select brake levers, which is the first on the list. The Campy levers and cable are the second topic in the article. There are pictures.

2004 Saturn vue will reverse but no forward?

check the Shifter cables they break. You have to remove center console surround to make sure cables are still attached. Very common problem of eyelets breaking. The shifter should feel sloppy. If shifter feels tight, the transmission may be bad

Ford Escape Transmission Shifter Problems

From 2001 through 2002 Ford used a plastic bushing on both ends of the transmission shifter cable that disintegrates over time and when it breaks your cable will slide off the steel stud either under the hood or inside your steering column, making it impossible for you to shift gears. The expensive replacement cable has the same plastic bushings so I decided to fix mine a better way. I had to search a while and measure many steel bushings before finding one that had the perfect inside and outside diameter. Finally I found a wire splice ferrule (12.5 - 14 ga.) used in fencing sold at Tractor Supply Simply drill a small hole at one end for a cotter pin and then press the ferrule onto the steel stud with pliers. Slide your shifter cable on it and then add a nylon washer and cotter pin. (which the factory should have done for safety anyway!!!!)

How do I tighten the shifter cable

GM issued a service bulletin for difficult shifting. The cause was foreign material causing the shift indicator to stick. When the shifter is moved, the slide becomes damaged. The correction was to replace the damaged shift indicator slide with a revised part

To whom this may concern; I've riden many many many miles on my road bike with the SRAM Force break leaver with integrated double/tap shifting. Recently however it was having trouble with keeping the...

I'd revisit the adjustments first before spending that kind of money. It sounds like cables have stretched and simply need to be readjusted, which may be normal.

Ask yourself this... Why would the left shifter have anything to do with this and how do you know you'd get an 'improved' set on a new purchase?

Maybe look on eBay periodically for a deal or a stray right shifter.

Aren't boutique parts fun?

Ford Focus stuck in park. Windshield wipers and power window switches also rendered unusable. Tried changing break light switch on the brake pedal,but the problem persists.

There is a main fuse that is blown or it could be a fusible link. Anyways there is a hole near the shifter and you can stick something in there so you can move the shifter manually. Sometimes it is a key slot sometimes it is just a hole. That hole is there so that if an event you don't have power to release the shifter you can do so manually.

Need to remove the cable from the 105 flight deck

This really depends on what cable you need to replace, the brake or the shifter.

For Shifter:
1. Shift the all the way down to the lowest gear using the small inside shift level for both the front or rear.
2.Disconnect the cable from the derailluer, likely a 5mm allen wrench will be needed.
3.Pull housing away from the shifter exposing the cable where it enters the shifter.
4.Compress the brake lever, this will expose a small hole on the inside of the shifter where the cable head is seated. For the right shifter the hole will be on the right, for the left shifter the hole will be on the left.
5. Push the cable in from where the cable entered the shifter. The head of the cable will now be exposed.
6.Pull the cable the rest of the way out of the shifter.
7.Install the new cable.

For Brake:

1. Disconnect the brake cable, likely with a 5 mm allen wrench.
2. Compress the brake lever. Keep it compressed until step 5.
3.Look straight in from the front of the bike, you will see the head of the brake cable.
4.Push the cable out of the shifter from the exposed area of the cable, then pull once you can reach the end of the cable.
5.Install a new cable.

Depending on the reason you have removed the cable, it is advised that you also replace the housing in most cases. For the shift cables this is not a problem, however, for the brake cables you will have to untape the bars to access the housing.

I hope this anwsers your question. Thank you
