Just wondering if anyone can tell me the ins and outs of replacing a choke cable in 1980 mini?

It's one of the nastier jobs on a Mini Lauren, it's awkward getting access to the nut that holds the cable to the switch panel, indeed it might be easier to remove the panel to do the job(2 nuts behind the lower dash panel). It's also tricky trying to thread the new cable back through the bulkhead when you are replacing it, it may help to tie a wire or string to the old cable before you remove it so at least you have something to help you pull the new cable into place, if that makes sense.

I'ts a small job that can take some time and will have you cursing most of the way through it :roll:

Good luck with it, your Dad would be proud to see you working on the Mini 8)


A fully carbon fiber Mini Marcos shell weighs just 7.25kg.
