A motion-transmitting remote control assembly of the type for transmitting motion along a curved path by a flexible motion-transmitting core element (12) movably supported in a conduit (14) with a slug (20) secured to a first end of the core element and a terminal for transferring forces between the core element and a control member (24), such as a brake actuator, and a method of fabricating the assembly. The terminal includes a connector (26) for connection to the control member (24), an abrasion-resistant sleeve (48) in sliding engagement with the core element (12) and for abutting engagement with the slug, and a vibration isolating member (30) supporting the sleeve (48) within the connector(26) to transmit forces from the slug (20) to the sleeve (48) and through the vibration member (30) and through the connector (26) to the control member while dampening vibrations between the core element and the control member. The method comprises the steps of: fabricating the connector (26) with an annular ring (36), fabricating the vibration isolating member (30) with a neck (40) for disposition in the ring (36) and a central bore (62) extending through the neck (40), fabricating an abrasion resistant sleeve (28) having an exterior larger than the bore (62) whereby the neck (40) of the vibration member may be inserted into the annular ring (36) and the abrasion sleeve (28) thereafter inserted into the bore (62) to radially expand the neck (40) into gripping engagement with the annular ring (36) to retain the assembly together.
