Foot warmer cable

Postby yogi57 » Sat Apr 07, 2012 7:12 am



Hello everyone, just replaced my air filter on my 06 Wing. I would not have attempt it without this forum. Thanks for that.
Everything went well except when I finished, my foot warmer cable was not functioning. I removed the front lower cowl, inspected the cable where it joins to right and left side. I'm baffled, how are these cables suppose to be connected? I'm missing something. The cable did function properly prior to my air filter change. Can anyone clue me in on want is wrong? Is there a schematic or a how to out there? Any help is appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Take your left pocket out and see if the cable is still attached to the handle that operates it on the top shelter. Ive seen where sometimes if its not put in properly it will come off or sometimes owners forget about attaching the cable.

I double check already, that is not the case. The problem is where the three cable join.
Thanks

Remove the left-hand box under the steering wheel, check the cable and installed an armor on the lever to open the heating!

Okay, here is a weirdee. This happened to me this spring, with the heater doors open - the open/close selector would not close the vents. Being as they were open, I manually pushed them closed, after which the open/close selector began to operate correctly. Without doing anything else, the doors opened and closed as they should. If any of this is similar to what is going on with yours, then the same thing may get it working again. If not, then, at least it is worth a try.

Thank you for your responses. I went to my local dealer to inquire about my problem. All he could tell me is that the cable is broken,
replacement cost for the cable is over $100.00 and in one complete unit. This is what I did to fix it.
1- slack both right and left cables at adjustment points
wire the three cables together
2- glue it all together using glue gun (photo below)
3- reassemble everything as normal
4- adjust both right and left side cables
Everything is working perfectly again. I would have included more photos but I can only upload one. I hope this will be of help to anyone encountering the same problem.

An answer to this problem for later use. There is a white plastic piece inside the tube with two grooves on it. Two cables should be placed into these grooves. Using a wire pull this white plastic out and place the two cables on it. This will join the cables.
