There have been quite a few occasions recently when I approach a junction or traffic lights I lift my foot off the accelerator pedal to push the brake and the throttle pedal does not fully return, meaning the engine is revving slightly higher than it should. No big deal, I used to just hook my foot under the pedal and lift the pedal up.
|There are two reasons for this job... |
No.1 fit a return spring to the pedal,
and No.2 place a seal on the pedal
connecting rod to block the hole in.
|From the drivers side the hole for the |
throttle connecting rod is very apparent!
|I went onto the 'Just Kampers' website |
and purchased a pedal hinge kit with
return spring and a accelerator pedal
rod seal, all for the sum of £15
|Rubber matting removed, you can |
see how big the rod hole is... everyone
who sat in the front mentioned that
they could see the road as we drove along.!
|It is a cheap and simple fix, I should have |
done it months ago. Floor looks
quite solid, but I'll have to red oxide
the drivers side of the floor.
|A close up of the connecting rod and |
|Da Dah..!! Rod seal grommet fitted, how |
easy was that. No more rain water, wind
or small animals getting in.!
|This method is much slower than if you |
had two pairs of hands, but the end result
is the same. It should mean that when I pull
up at the lights now it doesn't sound like I'm
about to do the 1/4 mile... !
