Finally got the non-cruise cable in. It was all very easy until I got to the part where you actually have to take the ball and clip part off the base of the throttle pedal. I'm not exactly a small guy so I actually had to unmount the pedal by removing the two 12mm bolts that holds the assembly against the wall. Even then, it was a pain getting it off. A guy with slim fingers could probably have done it easily but not me. After many attempts and curses, I got the thing off. I don't know how any of you actually got the clip and ball off the throttle pedal without unmounting the pedal itself but if I hadn't unmounted the pedal, I never would've got this done.
Just some advice for the bigger framed and more fat-fingered guys out there. Take the time to unscrew the 2 botlts holding the throttle pedal against the wall. I spent a stupid amount of time trying to just take off the clip as it is.
