It probably has clips which can be popped with a flat-headed screwdriver. Take a few pictures and send them to and I will take a look if you still can't figure it out.

Replace clutch cable

Hi anonymous, this not an easy procedure for the do it yourself type person, I would suggest taking it to your local dealer or reputable shop, call around for best price should be around $150. But if your willing to give it a try here is the short version: remove necessary parts of the exhaust system to gain acess to the transmission side cover, next back off jam nut and turn in threads of cable end, remove clutch lever and cable end, cut all try straps securing cable, remove tranny side cover, remove ball and ramp mechanism, remove clutch cable end. Your going to need snap ring pliers. Good luck

Replace accelerator cable

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!

When the control is pushed once the door moves about a foot and then reverses. Push a second time and it closes properly. IThe control does not have to be held until the door is closed. Any suggestions?...

Use the pull cord and disconnect the opener from the door. Operate the opener and let the carrier slide back away from the door. Is the carrier moving smoothly when disconnected? Next, lift the door by hand from the bottom to the top. Is it moving smoothly? If not, lubricate the axles of all the rollers on both sides of the door. Check the cable pulleys at the top sides of the door channel, lubricate them as well. Are all cables in all the pulleys, there are 4. After checking those things, there is a "up force" and "down force" adjustment on the opener, try increasing the "up force" by turning the adjustment in the direction of MORE force.

Odometer not working

Could be that speedo cable has become disconnected or that the inner shaft has broken. The speed cable is connected between the back of the instrument cluster and the left side of the transmission. Check under the car that the cable is securely fitted to the side of the transmission. Disconnect it and and check on the condition of the square drive flexible shaft. The spinning of this inner shaft is what conveys the output shaft speed of the transmission to the instruments. The instrument cluster can be removed but pushing a length of coat hanger wire with right angle turn on its end between the the cluster and the dashboard surround. Turn the coat hanger to hook behind the cluster and pull forward to remove it. Try several points around the cluster. It is best to disconnect the speedo drive cable to withdraw the cluster (after electrical connections have been disconnected. check that the speedo cable is secure to the back of the instruments. If you remove the cluster completely follow the path of the speedo cable. If you have to replace the cable, tying a length of string to the speedo cable end first and posting the string down the cable path will help the re-installation enormously. Simply pull the string whilst reinstalling the instrument cluster until the end of the speedo can be got hold of. Refit the speedo cable to the transmission only after the instrument cluster is back in place.

    My 1984 toyota corolla needs a new speedometer cable installed.

    Removal & Installation The slightest bind in the speedometer cable can cause unpredictable behavior in the cruise control system. If the cruise control exhibits intermittent surging or loss of set speed symptoms, check the speedometer cable first
    1. Follow the appropriate procedure given previously for removal of the instrument cluster. The cluster need not be fully removed, but only loosened to the point of being able to disconnect the speedometer cable.
    2. Disconnect the speedometer cable and check that any retaining clamps or clips between the dash and the firewall are released.
    3. Safely raise the vehicle and support it on jackstands.
    4. Disconnect the cable fitting at the transmission or transaxle and lift the cable and case away from the transmission or transaxle.
    5. Follow the cable back to the firewall, releasing any clips or retainers.
    6. From inside the vehicle, work the speedometer cable through the grommet in the firewall into the engine compartment. It may be necessary to pop the grommet out of the firewall and transfer it to the new cable.
    7. When reinstalling, track the new cable into position, remembering to attach the grommet to the firewall securely. Make absolutely certain that the cable is not kinked, or routed near hot or moving parts. All curves in the cable should be very gentle and not located near the ends. Note the speedometer cable inside the housing must be lubricated with the proper lubricant before installing it to the vehicle.
    8. Attach any retaining clips, brackets or retainers, beginning from the middle of the cable and working towards each end.
    9. Attach the cable to the transmission or transaxle. Remember that the cable has a formed, square end on it; this shaped end must fit into a matching hole in the transmission or transaxle mount. Don't try to force the cable collar (screw fitting) into place if the cable isn't seated properly.
    10. Inside the vehicle, hold the other end of the cable with your fingers or a pair of tapered-nose pliers. Gently attempt to turn the cable; if it's properly seated at the other end, the cable will NOT turn more than about 1/4 turn. If the cable turns freely, the other end is not correctly seated.
    11. Lower the vehicle to the ground.
    12. Attach the speedometer cable to the instrument cluster, again paying close attention to the fit of the square-cut end into the square hole. Don't force the cable retainer.
    13. Reinstall the instrument cluster following procedures outlined previously. Road test the vehicle for proper operation.

    My husband is not mechanically savvy. That being

    It isn't too difficult just do one at a time. Disconnect from your battery and then disconnect other end where it attaches to engine. There may be brackets along it's length that will have to be removed that secure it make sure to reinstall these on the new cables. I would suggest though before attaching your actual ends to your battery go ahead and replace bothe cables so you don't accidently arc your positive cable anywhere. It's just a safety precaution. Remove your negative battery connection before starting procedure.
