Kickdown cable?

Can anyone take a picture of the kickdown cable attachment on 300tdi throttle linkage?
Apparently I'm missing something...

I am, so you want on the IP where the kickdown cable connects?

Yeah, that'd be great.
Thanks Neill.

So, I think I have 2 issues.
There is nowhere for the kickdown cable to connect; and the cable is several inches to short to reach anyway!
Is there a different cable part #?

Ashcrofts sells them here : http://www.ashcroft-transmissions.co...-brackets.html
The actual part numbers are err4897 and err1604. One of the brackets goes near the injector lines in the back and the other sits on top of the plate that the throttle cable is hooked too here is a pic of mine.

OK, this should get you the right idea.

Two pictures... one is the forward top side of the IP that shows the bracket that bolts on to connect the cable.

Second picture is the cable bracket behind the IP that holds the cable sheath/jacket. Sorry for the crappy pic but it's a blind shot and I can't tell the damn phone to focus on the bracket instead of those hoses.

Maybe this makes more sense now?

Well....sheeit.

Ashcroft lists the 200/300 cable as 1200mm long.

The V8 cable is 980mm long...

Looks like the only solution is to change the cable---frack!

Anybody changed the kickdown cable on a Tdi ZF before in situ?

Will says changing a kick down cable is no big deal. I haven't had to do one.

Hey Peter,
Finally got my brackets-Ashcroft came through but they were backordered.
If possible could you get me a shot where the cable anchor mounts near the back of the IP?
One of your pictures almost shows it but missed the bolt.
I'm guessing its that small bolt on the back side....

Yeah Jafir, I've read the gospel according to PT and kickdown cables.
I have to change the cable on mine(uggghh) but I also have to get the brackets mounted.
This was a non-auto motor originally.
The top bracket is pretty easy; and I think I can see where the rear/anchor bracket mounts...just want to confirm.

Then I'll tackle changing the cable.

Thanks for that pic, Peter.
There is also a blank threaded hole right below where your anchor-bracket is mounted-don't know what the thread is...

I finally got my kickdown cable changed--wasn't too bad as the trans was essentially empty.
I would hate to do it on a recently run trans...yuck.

Yeah, it worked great-cable aims straight to the other bracket.
I was going to use the same bolt in your picture when I saw the hole right below it-and it was threaded!?

Pretty tough to get pics down there; I'm using a Nikon D90 with a 10.5mm fisheye...
