    This post is old, but it definitely help me get my cruise control off. The hardest part was to get the throttle cable off. basically i just rotated it upwards (pulling the wire at 90 degrees and it came off, slips off. The other question ppl had was how to cover the firewall hole. I had a rubber hood adjuster plug (basically its used to adjust the hood when it is closed up or down) and I just twisted inside the firewall hole and it fit perfectly! Looks OEM and looks better than patching it up with black tape. Im assuming the plug came off a civic a long time ago when i upgraded my front end.

    First, huge thanks to the OP for this helpful and detailed explanation. The pics really helped, and I was able to do this in about 30 min.

    Pretty sure this part is written incorrectly. When you push the gas pedal, the cable that moves is actually the throttle cable, and you DO want to keep that cable entact (i.e. if you cut it, you're SOL for pressing the gas lol).

    The cable that DOESN'T move when you press the gas is the one you want to remove. It's pulled in the opposite direction by the cruise control assembly, which manually depresses the gas pedal. That's the one you want to remove and pull back through the firewall.

    Just figured that was worth clarifying for anyone who comes along like I did and scratches their head for a moment at that part of the instructions.
