Model 180 Series; Rudder Control Cable Failure; ATA 2720

Extracted From:    AC No. 43-16A
            ALERT NO. 304
            November 2003

The Airframe Propulsion and Services Branch (ACE-118W) of the Aircraft Certification Office (ACO), located in Wichita, Kansas, submitted the following article. (This article is published as it was received.)

Reports have been received of rudder control cables on the Model 182 airplanes being caught under the mounting bolt for the elevator control cable pulley at Station 156. Unsuccessful attempts were made to recreate the malfunction. While the malfunction could not be repeated by control movement, it was noted that maintenance on the airplane battery and/or avionics package, are both accessed through the same Station 156 panel and that it may be possible in some configurations to inadvertently push the rudder control cable down under the elevator pulley bolt during maintenance.

Failure to recheck the rudder control cables rigging following maintenance on the nose wheel steering or rudder trim systems could increase the potential for this to occur. Maintenance Manual procedures call for the cable rigging to be checked following work on these systems and must be adhered to.
