Help with replacing throttle cable

I got a new throttle cable for my h22 since the old one is snapped, so does anyone here know how to replace it? I've searched for a while now, and all I found are how to replace carb ones. I've obviously never done it before, but I'd like to so I know a little more about cars and save a little money. But is it an easy job? I've heard it's fairly straightforward. Anyone mind giving me an explanation on how to replace it? Or at least point me in the right direction...

Edit: the H22 is a 97 Accord, so I I don't know how much of a difference that makes.

Re: Help with replacing throttle cable

Open the throttle valve fully, then install the throttle cable in the throttle linkage, and install the cable housing in the cable bracket.
Start the engine. Hold the engine at 3,000 rpm with no load (transmission in [N] or [P] position, M/T in neutral) until the radiator fan comes on, then let it idle.
Adjust the cruise control cable.
Hold the throttle link to the throttle lever; there should be no clearance.
Hold the cable sheath, removing all slack from the cable.
Turn the adjusting nut until it is 3 mm (0.12 in.) away from the cable bracket.
Tighten the locknut. The cable deflection should now be 10 - 12 mm (0.39 - 0.47 in.)
Adjust the A/T throttle control cable

for a 97 accord sedan 2.2 vetc let me know if that helps you any.

Nope Lol I couldn't do it, so I took it to the mechanic and he fixed it for 20 bucks. Turns out I didn't even need the new throttle cable. And it fixed the power loss on my car!! Now I just gotta get the vtec going, and it'll be ready to go. Thanks for the help, though
