Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to try and assist you with this.I may need more info in some cases to help with answering your question.
On some of these you rotate the throttle by hand then push the cable connection slightly to release it from the post it is connected to on the throttle body and on others there may be a small plastic tab you pop up on the plastic connection that connects to the cable and throttle body then the cable will pop off.
If it looks like the picture posted above if you see the hole on the left side and then just a little further forward of this hole on the outside of this plastic piece you can see the plastic circlip tab,you carefully pop this tab outwards a little at the same time pulling off the cable.Once off make sure this circlip tab is pushed back into place then the calbe snaps right back onto the throttle body.
Pete having trouble getting the circlip to move over little stop on a sort of guide that runs in a groove on the threaded part that the cable runs through. The connector pictured is the one on mine. Thanks
Hey Pete I got it! Put a piece of wire under one side and a compass point (like the kind you draw circles with) under the other and pried with a screwdriver blade gently and off it came. The circlip went back in its place so I don't think I'll have any trouble getting it back on. Now for the fun part- getting the CSEFI unit and the intake manifold off so I can replace the gaskets. Thank you so much!
Your welcome.Let me know if you need anything else in the future.
