    BW65 kickdown cable

    As you are all in a generous advice giving mood I thought I'd ask another question.

    I have a BW65 auto box and need to change the kickdown cable. Has anyone done this? Some pointers would be good.........do's, dont's, that sort of thing.
    And how to do it of course

    Disconnect the cable at the top end. Drain the fluid, remove the sump, unclip the bottom end of the cable from the downshift cam. The outer cable has a plastic two legged clip on it which holds it into the casing. You can use a socket and extension to push on the clip which closes it up and allows it to come free. The clips go hard with age so can break as you try to remove it, but as you're changing the cable then providing you find the broken bits that's no problem. When refitting set the cable adjuster so that there's no slack in the inner cable, but it doesn't hold the cam off it's stop. It's best to set this before you refit the sump so you can see what you're doing and get it right. Use fluid that meets Ford Specification M2C-33G.

    If you've got the correct cable, a sump gasket, and you keep everything scrupulously clean, then there really isn't any more to it than that. I've tried to think of things that could trip you up, but providing you've got some mechanical expertise and don't attack it with a club hammer then you shouldn't have any problems.That bacon sarnie does sound tempting though.....
