I have just had my cluch cable replaced at my local Citreon dealer and was
told that they had to remove the dash panel and stearing wheel to remove
the old one so as to replace with the new, due to the fact that the old
one had been fitted upside down. Has anyone had the same problem, or can
Can't see how the cable could be upside down (or back to front) the ends
Perhaps they meant the plastic 'clip' which attaches the cable to the
pedal? - This is known to fail on TDs, frequently at 70k(ish) miles
plus. What colour is it? the original clip is black, replacements are
usually white (and stronger than the originals).
The plastic clip has a metal part which you remove to free the cable. If
someone replaced the clip 180 degrees out, they wouldn't be able to
withdraw the metal part because it would be towards the bulkhead and
there would be no room.....
In any case, the easiest fix would have been to remove the clutch pedal
complete to give access, that's what I do to replace the clip when it
breaks. Total time say half an hour......

Thanks for the info Alan, I did notice that part of a black plastic clip
was on the floor, after it had failed and the work carried out took them
six and a half hours to do and they managed to break the two part cover
around the stearing wheel, which I am waiting for them to replace free of
