Hole in dash behind speedo ?
#1
When I changed the clutch cable on a Xantia I removed the speedo and JUST managed to attach a new clutch cable & clip through the hole in the back of the dash. 
Seeing I need to now change the clutch cable on my 2003 Berlingo I'm thinking that I might try the same method rather than hanging upside down under the dash Smile
With speedo removed can anyone tell me the approx size of the hole in the dash where the cables come through ?
Thanks.

No idea, but why not tie the new clutch cable securely to the old one and use it as a pull-through (draw wire)

It's not the feeding it through but rather attaching it to the pedal and then the securing clip

On my lefthand steer car, the cable enters just above the pedal. I really doubt removing the speedo(or the entire instrument binnacle) will make it any easier.

I've had the binnnacle out once. It's a big job to get it out and a worse job to get it back in. And it's pretty tightly packed behind it.

The clutch cable clip is a total pig on a Xantia (been there), but it should be a bit easier on the Berlingo.

There is still the problem of getting the pedal out due to the bolt fouling on the RHD version but I think you can cut the head off and pull the bolt out the other way. Then put one in from the right side instead.

Either way I think the access is easier and as Gadgetman says, I'm also sure the cable enters just above the pedal on the Berlingo.

Yeah mine snapped in a Tesco car park at night in the rain. I thought ok, new clip, return in the morning and stick it on, bish bash bosh.

4 days it took me to get it moving again. Oh the words I called that car.....
