    Hi everyone,
    I am in desperate need of a door lock release cable.
    Have tried breakers, e-bay, and even Ford! with no luck.
    It needs to be approx 72 cm long.
    Will other ford cables fit?
    Any advice appreciated.
    Thanks

    Regards Mike

    Can you either make a replacement using a bike brake cable or join in a section of new cable with solder less joiners use the inserts that are in electrical choc blocks.
    Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!

    I used a cable from at 2 door fiesta, got it from a scappy. The fittings are the same ( it was probably a 1990 Fiesta)
    Cabrio, Omex 2.0l 150bhp Zetec blacktop, Omex ECU and wiring loom.

    This is a bit of a minefield as there are several variables. Firstly, LWB Cabrios require longer cables as the doors are 2" longer than SWB. The cables came in several lengths depending on fitment - saloon, estate, front, back, etc - and were on Mk 2 Sierras (Mk 1 had different handles and used rods). The same type of door furniture was also used on other Fords of the time - Fiesta, Escort, Granada - so they are also sources of these items, and even more variety in cable length.

    Have a look at the earlier thread 'Cabrio Door Locks' from 17/8/16 for more info. Dave
