    I'd also be interested in this as one of my cables is stretched to buggery.

    thanks, tried the search on here n didn't come up with anything :(, cheers though just read both articles start to finish and both are only for adjusting the cable not for replacement. i was wondering where the cable runs and if anyone has any pics of doing this job? if not when i attempt it i will post up pics. cheers
