Cruise control actuator cable

Hello

The cable that runs from the servo to the throttle on my 98 Expy, broke right where it connects to the throttle. Looks like a bad design, brittle plastic connection to metal. I was wonder if there is a way to 'weld' the plastic back together or if anyone knows where I can get the part? I've searched the net to no avail. I called my local Ford dealer and was told the part was 'obsolete'! That's BULLSH##, the vehicle is only 12 years old!

Any help, advice or direction would be appreciated.

Re: Cruise control actuator cable

I've used a soldering gun to weld plastic. Sometimes you need a little extra plasic, so i get something made of the same type and weld it on. Just make sure nothing can break loose and hold tha throttle open. If you can get the part number from Ford, check here. Green Sales Company - Obsolete Ford parts, Lincoln, Mercury parts Green Sales Company, supplier of obsolete Ford parts and Lincoln / Mercury parts.  Our Ford parts inventory represents all Ford and Lincoln / Mercury products from 1950 to the present.
