Clutch Cable Questions

Just a quick and probably easy one for someone...
My clutch cable broke tonight, just wondering if anyone knows if this is reasonably easy to replace at home...??? Any particular problems or difficulties i might find???

Thanks, any help would be appreciated...

I've done a few Clutch Cables at home on my XD - They are not that hard to do (just bloody awkward If you like working upside down under your dash) The cable clips into the clutch fork and the other end to the top of the pedal - adjust it up and Done. If you're going to do it at home make sure you've got axle stands etc because you'll be working under the car.

Cheers

Are you sure it's brocken or pulled through the clutch fork at the bellhousing ???If it is they have a plastic piece there that breaks down and only needs replacing.. I hope so ... I hope it hasn't pulled through the firewall ??...

i've had a closer look and yes the cable appears to be ok.... i think it has pulled through not at the bellhousing but at the pedal end...
Couple of questions...
Is there a plastic piece at the pedal end that can be easily replaced???
Anyone know of a part number or anything for this piece???

Thanks..
Ben..

Theres a metal clip at the pedal end that connects the cable to the pedal.
This broke on mine a few months back
