Re:Clutch Cable

If you dont have one,get a workshop manual and if you have a little mechanical knowledge it shouldnt be too hard. I myself have never worked on an ED V8 but I would imagine it would be pretty straight forward. Youll never never know if you never have a go.

they have two spastic metal tabs that sit inside the bellhousing. Pull the cover back, push up and pull out... Very stupid idea IMHO...
