EB throttle not opening fully

hey guys
just worked out why my EB is changing gear too early and lost a lot of power- the throttle is only opening about 2/3rds!
i dont have a clue what it could be except maybe the cable has stretched or a clip has come off somewhere?

the pedal is goin all the way down though, to the pedal stop.
anyone had this problem? any ideas fellas?

Re: EB throttle not opening fully

Sounds like your accelerator cable could be stretched like you said.

Re: EB throttle not opening fully

Deffinatly change it, as they wear the outer plastic casing can also crack causing the throttle to open even less.

When installing a new cable follow a manuals guide and you won't have a problem and your car will feel 100% better.
