[DML] Re: Gas Pedal Height Adjustment?



It would seem that you could adjust the height of it by doing the
following:

- Disconnect the throttle cable from the throttle spool in the engine
compartment using the "clamping" nut.
- Pull the throttle cable as far out as you can (from the engine
compartment).  This will raise the height of the pedal to maximum.
-Go sit in the car and push the pedal in to where you would like the
height to be.  It will stay where you push it.
-Go back to the engine compartment, and now re-fasten the throttle
cable to the throttle spool with the clamping nut.  Make sure you
don't pull out the cable any further when you do this (maybe secure it
to the plastic sheath with some tape temporarily?).  

The pedal height will now be as you left it.  

The only problem I can think of this approach, is that if you lowered
the pedal height too much, there's a good chance that flooring it
won't open the throttle completely.
