is there a nack to getting the cable to locate at the engine end, do i have to dismantle anything to get it in? i just cant seem to get the cable to lie in the carrier and locate the round black stop in the hole at the same time
cheers, mark.

It's a bit of a fiddle, but you shouldn't have to dismantle anything. Locate the black cylindrical adjuster first, then the inner should line up with the gearchange linkage.

Helps to fit control cables first so they can enter the cowl where they like to sit
