300 Tdi Throttle Adjustment

Good afternoon Gents,

I've recently replaced my throttle cable due to it pulling out of the clevis on the pedal end. With the old cable I had a moderate bind in cold weather and the cable adjustment ferrule at the injector pump loosened constantly allowing the cable to go slack, causing the truck to lose power. The new cable has the same moderate bind in cold weather and the cable goes slack within a few days. I've wrapped a loop of .032 steel safety wire around the ferrule retaining tangs and the abutment bracket, which appears to keep the cable securely in place.

My question: who else have had similar issues with their throttle cables, what was your remedy, and has anyone heard of a retaining clip that LR later retrofitted to the 300 Tdi?

Here's the workshop manual procedure for cable adjustment:

And the cable replacement:

Thanks!

Are you using a genuine part cable?? I've never had those probs with the 300's I've had (three of them so far)

The newer cables seem to have more issues in my opinion. An old RRC cable will better serve you sometimes.

I have had this happen to one cable. I drilled a small hole in the adjuster knob then safety wired it to the bracket. It was really annoying.

They were (wait for itů) Britpart cables.

I thought I would add that my new cable also has this issue. It was not genuine. I think mine is allmakes.

Put some glue to the adjuster nut.
