C172R & S Rudder Cable Wear

Recommended Posts

If you own, fly or know an owner of a C172R or C172S please arrange for an inspection of the STAINLESS STEEL rudder cables. These cables are showing the same rapid wear that the aileron cables are showing, but there is no AD for the rudder cables as yet.


You will have to access the rear of the airplane behind the luggage section wall and check the cables as they pass through the fairlead. You will also have to check the cable in the vicinity of the pulley under the floor of the cabin. Best if you can get a little apprentice to go into the rear of teh plane. That's who found our bad cables.


We have replaced three sets of cables in the past month and are keeping a watch on the cables of another plane.
