    Just back from a great weekend in the blue mtns, good drive from the central coast yhe Kombi was going well.......

    On the way home just at Hornsby and Boom !!!!!. Clutch cable snapped....

    The Cable still OK but the connector to the clutch pedal has broken through...

    I was determined to fix this on the road side but limited tool's, rusted adjusted at the rear and oncoming of darkness and wife eager to be home we had to tow truck and the NRMA....

    I had previously checked all cables and they all looked good. But never had I closely examined the metal connector...couple of photos showing where it failed to let everyone check theirs which may save a breakdown in the future..

    Hope this helps that ks Ian

    I've never seen one break here,:eek:o_O:( it looks like the other hole on the other side is slightly out of shape as well. What is the pin clip that holds it in place like if this has broken?:rolleyes::(

    While i wait for delivery of new cable kit.....I practiced a quick fix repair....

    Applied fish oil to wingnut screw thread and was able to get 2 vice grips and undo the wingnut all way off the thread which allowed me to free the front connector enough to drill 4 mm hole through connector,...and secure new hole to clutch peddle with nut and bolt...
    Re-tghten wing nut and we have a working clutch once more...

    Off to buy more simple tools for Kombi tool kit...to aid future running repairs
