Removing body panel to remove header

Post by ActionMatthew »



Hi folks-I am removing this panel on the right dude, but there’s a cable-controller vent door that is keeping me from getting it completely off. Any tips on how to free that cable up so I can get this panel off?

There is a nut on the cable where it connects to the panel. If you loosen that up it should give you enough slack to take the cable off. When I did it I just left it attached and held the panel back out of the way. I didn't want to mess with having to adjust the cable to get the vent door correct. In the end I had to anyways because something moved. Good luck with the header. :D

Are you referencing the nut where the open/close knob is?

On the other end there is a nut that holds the cable to the lower cover.

You can remove the exhaust pipe cover while the cable is attached there (as shown below for the left side). There is another bolt behind the horn holding the cover in place. I think you couldn't see it.
After removing the cover, you can take the cable off as described in the previous posts.
