    I have just bought a 97 Ibiza cupra 2.016v as a winter car while i do an ABF engine swap on my mk2 golf.The golf origionally came with an auto adjusting clutch cable that i was able to change to a manual adjusting one off a 1.3 golf,is there an Ibiza with a manual adjusting clutch cable that i can substitute the cable from?

    Cheers Paul.

    I'd imagine you'd have to use the 1.3 golf one... Although it may require modifying one end or something. Think all the ibiza's came with auto adjust.

    Thanks for the replys,i'll have a look at the golf one,just wondered if it was a common swap as per the older golf.

    sadly not had many swapovers with so many being around already loaded with an ABF butthe standard auto cable isn't too bad considering it's route

    more looking into the tdi pedal box and converting it back to hydraulic myself

    Cheers i suspect my clutch is foobar'd but thought a quick cable change might solve my problems,will be checking the pedal box for cracks but deep down i know i need to man up and take the box off

    The 1.4 ibizas came with a manual adjusting. Im sure all the 085 boxes use a manual cable.

    I've searched quite a lot on this, apparently there is a manual Golf GTi one which fits and a polo 1.6 also however i've never had the cash or the time to order them and see which one i need.
