Throtle Cable

Is this something that I could do or should I take it in to a dealer? I have changed the timing belts. Mine broke or let lose this morning.

If you've changed timing belts, you should be more than capable of changing throttle cables (and you should probably change both at the same time while you have it all apart).

You can get an idea of what you're in for from this article: How to replace your throttle cables. The 1500 will be different, but the same principles are in play.

Should not be very hard, take everything off down to the air filter box and it will be under there.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.
