    Changing shifter cable on a Rapid-Fire shifter

    When I take the pod apart is it easy to remove the cable from that end?

    Any tricks to be aware of?

    You shouldn't need to take the pod apart to get the cable out. On some models there is a hole 180 from the adjuster, sometimes with a screw in cover closing it. Some have a "hatch" on the side facing the rider, held in with two small phillips screws. And on some of the lower end models you need to pull the gear indicator, held on with two small phillips screws

    Any guides out there showing the various types and their removal?

    Shimano site is vague and Park doesn't have it.

    I'll figure it out , Thanks.

    Gee, I get paid for that; I'm always pretending I know what I'm doing.
