Expected rise in gear control cable repairs

Date: Friday 27 November 2020

In the lead up to Christmas, more people this year are turning to online shopping, which means there are significantly more light commercial vehicles (LCV’s) on the roads making deliveries. As a result, this naturally increases demand for the service and repair of these vehicles and subsequently the components that are worked hard and are known to fail as a result, and gear control cables is one such component.

First Line is one of the UK market leaders for replacement control cables, with its range encompassing brake, clutch, accelerator and speedometer, as well as an extensive offering of gear control cables.

Similar to a traditional gear linkage, the gear control cable selects and engages the different gears within the transmission system. To ensure a smooth gear selection, it needs to be in good condition and replaced with a premium quality product when it becomes worn.

Traditionally thought of as a dealer only part, First Line offers a comprehensive range of gear control cables containing more than 250 references that cover popular right hand and left hand drive passenger car and light commercial vehicle (LCV) applications, all of which can be found in Webcat, First Line’s market leading online catalogue – webcat.firstline.co.uk 

First Line is advising workshops and factors to be ready for the increased demand by keeping a number of the most popular references in stock.

First Line’s top five references in its range are:

• FKG1003 to fit Nissan Primastar, Vauxhall/Opel Vivaro, Renault Trafic 2001>15
• FKG1076, FKG1077, FKG1078 and FKG1079 to fit Ford Transit FWD / RWD 2006>12 applications, covering 5 and 6 speed gearboxes
