How do you remove the throttle cable plastic connector from the firewall of a 1989 Suburban 5.7L 4WD so you can replace it?

First, remove the throttle cable from the gas pedal. This can be done easily by hand, since the connector attaching the pedal to the cable is not very strong. Next, using pliers, preferably needle nose, press down on the two plastic tabs coming through the firewall on the cab side. An easy way is to look at the throttle cable connector located on the drivers side next to the TBI. This is the same type of connector, so you should be able to come up with a plan of attack by looking at this. It's kind of tight under the dash where the cable comes through, with a dash bracket and heater routing, but with a little patience, you should do just fine.

Carbon is built up in the throttle body causing it to stick. Go to parts store and purchase throttle body cleaner. Take off plastic breather connecting to throttle body and spray in side the throttle body.

If you open the hood and look to the left of the engine / firewall you will see a black plastic cover bolted to the firewall. Read the top of it. It is behind that cover.
