My Aero seemed to be idling a bit low, to the point it would almost stall when I would stop at a red light or anything. I popped the hood and noticed the plastic bracket on the throttle body with the 90-degree fulcrum for the throttle cable had broken. I did a little research and I guess it's pretty common, but can anyone point me to where I can buy a new one, or better yet, are there any aftermarket metal ones so it doesn't happen again? Also, is a pretty simple straightforward replacement, or is it one of those "in order to do this you must do this, this, and this" type processes? Thanks for the help!

hahahahahaha i thought i was the only one this ever happened to! i had to tow my car home when i broke mine.

i remember having an issue finding a new one, but i had a parts car at the time so i swapped everything over from that TB.

unfortunately i dont even think its included if you buy a new cable.

So it's pretty easy to replace, right? Just looking at it it seems pretty straightforward. did you have to disconnect the throttle cable or is there a way to replace the bracket without disconnecting the cable? Thanks.

Apparently, the hole in the plastic piece is big enough to draw the cable and it's end through it, because it is not included with a new cable.
