If you have long thin fingers you can replace it by removing the pedal stop and just letting the pedal assy fall back down to the floor, otherwise you need to remove the whole assy in one piece. Will take you about 2hrs first time around, and there's some help here .... http://www.vw-resource.com/cable.html although it's LHD. A manual is a good thing to have if you want to work on your own car.

right, i have had a go and failed :eek: , i can just touch the end of the tube with a finger but have struggled and sworn with it till it went dark, i can see that if you take the plate off the end of the accelerator (passenger side) i could take the whole pedal assembly out making things easier, but its been welded on so this will prove tricky, will have another go tomorrow at feeding with renewed enthusiasm :D but might i have to remove the weld and take the whole thing out,or if i got someone to come round to do it would they do this, didnt want to disturb more than i need

Plate 30 should just slide off the end of the shaft. If you mean that plate has been welded, I can't see how or why.

It was the accelerator cable bracket that was welded to the accelerator rod. Sorted now though :D ;)
