Take the cable to a motor cycle repair shop.. They have (or should have) a tool for lubrication of throtle and clutch cables on bikes.. this should work on your cable as well.. may well make it almost good as new if properly lubed.


Home is where I park it.

Cable lube tools can be bought for under $10. I lube my cables with Liquid Wrench chain and cable lube. Any lube with a spray tube will work with the cable lube tool.

Years ago my hood release cable broke at a late night gas stop when I was going to check the oil level.I removed the two latches and duct taped the hood shut for the rest of the trip.When I returned home I removed all the rest of the hood latch hardware and installed a pair of old fashioned hood pins.weren,t the prettiest but they were cheap,simple and effective.
