    Rxt iS steering cable replacement.

    Has anybody had to replace one on an iS model? I don't have one here to look at, trying to get an idea of how much time it will take.

    the question actually would be:

    how much pain am I about to experience.

    I would estimate it at 3 hours. If it comes in less, bonus for the customer.

    Pete, does the top deck have to come off?

    having never done one I can't say for sure, but it's a pretty good bet unless you can somehow tape and wire the new cable to the old cable and same it thru without it snagging on something.

    call a dealer and ask for a ballpark, that will give you an idea of how much labor is involved.

    I'd expect to have to pull the deck as if the new cable hangs on say, a motor mount, you could ruin the replacement trying to free it.

    I don't have flat rate books for anything past 2006

    Ok, thanks. I might have to see about getting my hands on a flat rate book to use for guesstimates.
