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.

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.
