There may even be a support stay missing from way back.
I don't know what that means I watched them fit it this time and it looked fine but I can't get close to putting my foot down with this cable - it vibrates and you can feel it stretching. The sticking is getting worse - he told me it's to do with a wax seal that protects the cable from dew and things? I'm not sure if it's because they're 15 cables but I'm scared to drive it. I've had 2 cables in a month - I was doing 40mph on the motorway because I daren't press my foot down any harder!
