Renault Clio 03 - Engines - Clutch cable and dual controls

Just had dual controls fitted on my 03 clio 1.4 16v, when i tried them at the garage, they work but the dual clutch is VERY stiff! they tell me its due to the drivers side clutch being stiff.

they recommended replacing the clutch cable first and if its no better then must be the plate. Is this a reasonable idea? ALSO, with the selfadjusting mechanism, is it resetable after replacement??

Im sure it wont hurt to have a new cable anyway, its on about 40K and is going to be driven by learners but i dont want to be throwing 25 at a part i dont need to replace. esp if the garage are talking rubbish!

Currently in f8rdy's garage:
2001 Renault RX4 1.9 DCi - 2001 Subaru Impreza WRX 2.0 Turbo
