Where the clutch cable goes through the body, the body teared (which I've heard from others, is problem of this Hyundai model). Where and how can this be repaired? How much will it cost?
Do you

You would have to find an auto Body shop to fabricate something for you.

Thanks for the reply. I also found someone else's explanation for this problem:

We found that the fire-wall started cracking where the sleeve of the clutch cable kicks against the fire-wall. So, when the clutch is depressed the cable is pulled and because the nylon surface inside the sleeve had been warn through the friction was very high and in the process it was straining against the fire-wall, causing the fire-wall to crack. Now, if you depress the clutch, the cable pulls down and the section of the fire-wall moves back and the cable does not move relative to the sleeve.

Solution: we replaced the whole cable for a few bucks and then strengthened the firewall with a piece of steel plate extending right past the cracks and thus spreading the load over a larger surface of the fire-wall.

Hi there

Can you please send me a photo of the car with the plate on.
I have the exact same problem but I have no idea how to put the plate on.
I feel like there is no place around area where the flange mounts onto the firewall.
Please email me a picture if possible: asvhir@mtnloaded. Co. Za

I will really appreciate this.

JACOJP and ASVHIR, I'm so sorry, I don't have the car anymore. In the end, I had to replace the whole clutch system and the firewall was strengthened. I had no problem after that. Hope you can solve your problem.
