MG MGF Technical - Gear Select cable long v.s short
|My 1998 F is in the garage to have the gear select cables replaced after one snapped. However, they are having difficulty getting hold of them.|
Looking at Dieters EPC I can see the pair of cables ULS100060 (Long) and ULS100070 (Short). However there is also a shorter short one ULS000010, which is 8.5cm shorter.
Q1 - Which short one do I need?
Q2 - Any tips where to get them from?
|When mine went last time, I was told the TF has shorter cables than the F. Cables generally supplied to dealers by X-part, who order them in batches. If your dealer can't get one, he might just not be trying very hard so try Mike Satur. He came up trumps for me.|
|Or maybe Victoria at the MGF centre can help|
|Yap, MGF is ULS100070 |
The other is mgtf ULS000010.
You could use ULS000010 if you buy additional parts, as the gear bracket at the gearbox shaft. I think the cable bracket is required also, but I never got confirmed whether that's right or wrong. :(
You could see the difference here
Mike Satur knows the parts and I think the other suppliers also, as mentioned above.
