A bit confused by GTV73s post - unless his GTV is a 73......on the TS GTVs (at least the right-hand drive ones) the throttle cable is in two parts - though replacing either of them is a PITA. One part runs from the throttle pedal through the bulkhead to one side of a quadrant mounted on the bulkhead, hidden behind the plenum chamber - it has a cover over it fastened on with two 10mm bolts. The other cable runs from the other side of the quadrant to the throttle body.
There's no easy access to get at the quadrant - if you remove the inlet trunking and unbolt the throttle body, you might get enough access to get at it, otherwise you could remove the engine steady bar, and loosen the front engine mount to allow the engine to tilt forward enough to give you access......
