removal of throtle cable return cable

Ok I know that I am slow but want to do it right the first time. I have reviewed other postings on how to take off the air box. Per the manual you do not do that you remove the injector rail etc. That I have done. I have replaced the green marked throttle cable and it is set into the cam mechanism. The question I have is on the return cable. How to get it out of mechanism and how to remove the circlip. Do you unscrew the mechanism it is placed in then remove the circlip and cable from the cam? If anyone has the manual I am referring to page 13.13, the device with the spring on it.
I am going to dinner soon and will check when I get back.

Thanks for the help

Smile air box removal

I removed the air box beacause I just neede more room to work. Once I removed the hose clamps and one screw that held on the airbox I saw the cir clip which had to be removed. I don't see how I could of changed out both cables without the removal of the airbox. Others say they have done the change out withour removing but they are magicians. Good luck!

I have changed cables twice and never removed the airbox. It takes a tool to do it, best by far is a long, bent tip hemostat, but small LONG needle nose pliers work also. The Hemostat makes the job actually quite easy. I did pull the fuel rail, which is actually easy, two screws and the injector plugs. The hardest part of pulling the fuel rail is the fuel hoses, sometimes they are a bit of a witch to get off the nipples on the fuel rail.

Not sure what circlip you are talking about, but if it is the "E" clip holding the return cable's mounting sleeve in, I never found that an issue, just pop it out with a really small screwdriver, and push it back on with my fingers. Push in on the sleeve to compress the spring, and the clip is easy sneezy.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.

That's the one Dave, did not think of pushing on the spring to relieve tension and the clip should come right out. Then the change is easy. I just read the directions on the repair manual. At first I attempted to remove the box. but it just seemed to hard to get to the clamps. So I just unplugged the electrical connections to the injectors, cut some zip ties, took two others apart and removed the fuel lines on each end and got lots of clearance. Thinking about going down to do it tonight but now watching the Sus/Wolves game.
