    Front derailleur cable is frayed quite badly at the end and theres precious little cable to play with anyway, while tightening the cable to the front mech.
    Ive got a new cable.....is it a big deal to replace it ?...do i have to remove the shifters from the bars to get a new cable in?

    I've only ever done the cable on my Shimano levers - it was a doddle. I can't say whether Campag are similar, but do be sure your cable cutters are up to the job, or you'll end up with frayed cable again.

    This might help with the Campy levers;

    It's easy. Just push the old one out and feed the new cable through the same way.
