Fellas
My bonnet release cable snapped at the crimp end, and its frustratingly frayed about 20cm in..
Can you buy the complete cable and pull end, ? Or do I take it into someone to get it recabled...I thought I might take into into my local bike shop perhaps. Thoughts / suggestions.

You might have to ring Fred, Chris.
Part number should be 65640-N3401
Failing that you could get one from Merica they should be the same as the mechanism is in the middle of the car. Or as you said get it fixed. I'd try the chandler at the Yatch club.

The cable assembly is around US$170 plus postage. Ouch.

Better you get one off someone's parts car.

The problem with repairing yours is swaging or crimping a new cable into the Tee handle, although the other end would be simple like a bicycle or motorcycle cable.

Hmmm, I cant help thinking the bar bit that screws onto the t-bar, cant be reused, when you look at it the cable must sit at least 3-4 cm inside, and then crimped...
Thanks Jeff, I'll pop in and see bugalugs, pending that I'll call conwire and post it to them.
