plastic at the firewall on the throttle cable?

I know I have seen it mentioned by someone, somewhere, but I can not find it.

The plastic at the firewall where the throttle cable comes out, broke, what kinda micky mouse crap is that....

Is there any kind of fix for it, or do I have to go buy a new throttle cable with the plastic crap on it,
just so it can break a little later.

What have you all done to fix this ???
Or do you all have the same problem with it?

thanks..

GO to the junk yard and get one, shouldn't cost you a thing! Or I'm sure they have something like that at NAPA or Auto Zone, just take the broken one in and tell them what its for. Shouldn't cost anything above one dollar! Later

None in any junk yard anywhere within a 200 mile radius of where I live....
if there are any , they have been put in storage or something and well hidden......

I was hoping that some of you have done a metal quick fix solution.
or some other permant solution, the actual cable looks and works great....

Bring the part to Autozone and look at their rubber grommets. Find one that is the right size to plug the hole in the firewall and run the cable through it. The plastic part is not needed for it to work.

Re: plastic at the firewall on the throttle cable?

rich_d, I had the same problem and fixed it wth epoxy. Problem solved. The trick is to NOT glue the cable core to the housing at the same time! I solved this by supergluing the parts together first, then potting the whole thing with epoxy. Also, put a weight on the gas pedal to take up the slack in the cable, holding the whole patch together when you're gluing it. Presto!
