Re: Accelerator Cable Broken SIX Times

There is an old expression "give it some welly", which essentiallu means planting your foot down hard and rapidly on the accelerator.

What I mean is..are you sure the cable follows the exact route the original one did and . there may ..or may not have been a cable support like a bit of wire thicker and stronger than say the wire in a clothes hanger which was attached to a bolt and also clipped on to the outside of the cable to hold it steady.

Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
