    Replacing reverse cable on an SUV - Thanks Mr. Moe and Osside Bill

    A few weeks ago I snapped my reverse cable. Clueless (as usual) I came here and asked the question....how do I fix it. Dealer wanted $400....$150 just for the part.

    I found the part on SBT.com for $90, but Bill suggested I go with the cable for an XLT. The XLT cable was only $50.

    Mr. Moe offered to help and in about the hour, the two of us replaced it.

    Thanks for the help guys!

    BTW, the XLT cable was about 2 to 3 inches shorter than the SUV cable that came off, but worked fine. We just had to route it a bit differently.

    Dang I am glad you mentioned this! I have been delaying buying my reverse cable for one of my SUVs and picked up a 98XL to part out last week. I was about to list the reverse cable for sale so that I can use the money from that to buy the one from SBT for $90. Can't wait to get home to see if the XL cable fits.

    Thanks, was able to pull the cable, I ended up getting it freed up and working. I took a piece of clear tubing, a small hose clamp, slid it over the cable down to the metal tube outlet. filled the tubing with PB blaster, and hit it with compressed air till it came out the other end. secured one end to work bench vice, pushed and pulled and it came free. put water proof grease inside each of the rubber water grommets. works like a new one.
