Hi
Went to use the hand winch in anger and as I pulled the cable in a section that was frayed got jammed between the two feet (pulling mechanisms). Due to it being frayed it can't be forced in or out of the winch.
Any thoughts how I can pull the cable out? Was thinking of disengaged the feet and using the car to pull it out?
Also, do I need to replace the cable or just not us that section in the future?
Cheers
FA

If your winch is constructed like mine then you can split it in half. This should help you get the cable out. You can do a grease up and service at the same time.

I bought a new cable from ARB, but you'd have to check the diameter of it.

Don't rush the hand winches mate ;)
