Accelerator pedal cable: replacement and selection

When and why accelerator pedal cable needs replacement

Exact lifetime limit is not specified for this part. One needs a new throttle cable if the old one was torn. In addition, the part is replaced in case of its jamming.

The common cause of this part breakdown is negligence during repair of other car elements. For example, the gas pedal cable may become kinked after repair works in the engine compartment, which leads to violation of protective sheath integrity and delamination. Jamming of the part is caused by freezing in winter if the protective sheath is broken and moisture comes in, as well as by delamination.

A specific sign of damaged part is a stiff travel of the accelerator pedal. At jamming it can’t even be pressed. And in case of tearing, the pedal sinks and further movement of the vehicle is impossible.

Replacement of this component should be performed cautiously, in order not to damage its sheath.

This will help to prolong the cable’s service life. The replacement algorithm may vary depending on the car brand and model. Thus, before installing a new component, study your car manual.

How to select an accelerator pedal cable

Amongst products of this category there are components with and without a return spring. The cable equipped with the spring needs no adjustment, thus it is more convenient in operation.

Quality of the accelerator pedal cables greatly depends on the manufacturer. For example, products by Metzger have earned good reputation.

While purchasing the throttle cable you need to take into account the car’s main characteristics: the brand, model and production year. Parts may differ by length and diameter according to the gearbox type and mounting side of the steering wheel.
