Throttle pedal

Postby darrenbiggs » Sat Oct 05, 2019 3:40 pm

Hello all.

Quick mention of the throttle pedal as mines been sticky lately in the colder weather, though seems fine after a few miles once warm.

Hence I took the opportunity pre-Bicester meet to pull the pedal out and take a look. It's just held in by the plastic brackets that clamp with 4 bolts so apart from prising them open it's easy enough.

As you can see the right hand side was heavily corroded where it runs in the plastic guides.

I used the dremel and Emery to clean this up, re-greased and re-fitted. Actually came up quite clean when finished.

Seems a lot better now, so worth checking.

Well worth giving the whole pedal box a clean up. Like Darren says they are prone to corrosion. Look out for any fluid weeps from the clutch master as that will properly rot the pedal box away.

You have to be careful with the plastic clamps..
