    I have a '92 civic si and my cables for the gas tank door and hatch window are rusted and will not move. So I would like to know if anyone has any ideas for what I can do. Can I buy a replacement cable somewhere???? I wrote down the numbers that was on each cable.
    8/083/SRO/A/2 this was for the gas tank door.
    8/105/SRO/A/2 this was for the hatch window.

    Not sure if it will work but there are cable lubricators and cable lube made for motorcycle throttle and clutch cables. They clamp onto the cable and tubing and you just spray the lube in the clamp thing. Do this about once or twice a year. The cable lubricator costs about $5- $6 and should be available at most motorcycle shops and the lube is about the same.

    This probably won't fix the problem you have now but should help to prevent it from hapenning to the new cables.
