    have a look for any part numbers, a carb one would be way too long gti much shorter. how much longer are we talking, bearing in mind a RHD GTI has throttle body on driver side near brake servo

    OK that comes back to GTI cable yep, so pretty much the shortest there is :( when you say its too long, is it just the routing or is it not operating the throttle properly

    right, what it could be is your pedal is bent, easy done if the linkage was set to tight in the past. easy enough to bend it back, hold the cable rod up the top then pull the pedal up towards you. while there make sure the rod is pulling the cable directly thru the bulkhead, if its been bent its usually off to the side which ends up chafing the cable eventually
