    Default 306 clutch cable

    have what seems to be a 306 sticky clutch cable
    is it possible to lubricate it and where is the access to do so?

    any clues on replacing cable if that is what is required?

    i replaced mine on friday, it was heaps heavy and then the plastic clip on the end snapped signalling it required replacement (although driving with no clutch was fun ) the cables cost $109 from peugeot and it was a pain in the arse to fit, but the clutch feels much better now just be careful to adjust it properly or else you will have trouble getting into gear,

    to get a mechanic to fit it you should be charged around 1 hour labour.

    As far as I know its not too disimilar to the 405 cable. I managed to get one for about $100 and fit it myself. Its not a hard job, just set aside enough time to do it as you don't want to rush things like a clutch cable. Shouldn't take more than an hour though.

    As far as lubricating it.... well I have heard of lots of people trying, but no one with any success that I can think of. I believe that in the end the replacement will save you a lot of head aches.

    if you are interested in lubricating your cable.. i have heard that graphite/carbon dust does a good job. But how the hell you get it all the way along your cable i dont know.

    Hence, a new cable will behave just like that... new

    Hanks fo the help.
    The pedal was jerky when depressing ,not overly stiff,
    I have splashed oil around above the pedal on the cable and it seems a bit better ,maybe it was binding? that was sort of what it felt like.
    dunno about age of clutch no shudder, 167k on clock

    Thanks again

    I thought they were automatic adjusting cables....I had mine replaced about 3-4weeks back, the thing was shocking it wouldnt engage gears and all sorts, sure enough it was cactus, the new one went in and no probs.

    Generally they do a clutch and cable at the same time, weird that only my cable was gone, go figure.
