Hi which is the correct throttle cable to use ? Part numbers please ,and can I buy one from ?
mk2 gti will fit fine, available from all over. try to get GEMO make if you can, 192721555A
Hi it think that’s what I’ve got already, and it’s to long ?
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 mate thanks I will have a look and see if i can find a part number and get back to you
Hi it says it a Gemo cable part number on it is 434792? It’s 1084mm long which is a gti one isn’t it ?
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
Oh rite ok ,it’s not operating the throttle correctly, it’s nearly on full adjustment
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
Ok mate thanks I’ll check that out ,hopefully that solves it
