Where might I lube the throttle cable on my 94 d90 that connects to the carburetor from the gas pedal? My gas pedal feels "tight" as if the cable needs lubrication or replacement. I tried penatrating oil at a place above the pedal but I can't seem to find a good point at which to lubricate the cable. Near the carb, the cable is wraped in rubber. I can't remember if the cable "opens" below the carb.
Alternatively, is it difficult to replace the cable? Difficult as in replacement without without a lift or fingers the size of a three year old? Thanks. Daryl
Its probably best to get some lithium grease in a spray can, and shoot it down from the speedo end. I'm not sure how far it will get. Everything is a little more sealed up from the engine side. The cable is easy to replace if you are convinced that is your trouble, but before you go replacing or even greasing, make sure your cable isnt kinked somewhere and that its not getting hung up on your floor mats or something.
And not to be picky, but the cable terminates near the throttle body, not a carb - your fuel injected 94 doesn't have carbs.
