my original had the button, my replacement has that white clip thing. My work uniform is a white shirt so I can't be getting too dirty and I don't even want to drive back home tonight without fixing that.. So, pull the white clip out(carefully prying on outer flaps/locks to free it), wiggle the rest of the block outwards, away from the throttle body area, to pull the slack out, make it so it is as little slack as possible but zero tension on the cable with it idled(with that +/- 1mm bit included). replace white clip to lock it together. got it.
It was shifting perfectly fine till the old tv cable broke, and was tolerable with some slop when I wired the broken one together. Install the new one and drive it to work, oh boy, complete chaos. I'd say it's most certainly the new TV cable isn't adjusted properly. I rushed it as I was busy, tired and frustrated and didn't think to check the adjustment thoroughly. I figured the miniscule amount of slack matched the old one close enough to work, but apparently I was wrong. I think the old one was actually a little on the tight side and shifting was perfect, so I'll tighten it up and hopefully that works.
btw, is anyone else having problems with the search function?
edit; ive heard something about 2 to 3mm is tolerance too, depending on models
