Re: accelerator extremely difficult to push (VWCaddy)

Cable man.
My dad just picked up a sweet 92GTI 2L 16v and it had this problem pretty bad - like three to four times the pedal effort required on the BRAKES of my old GTI to get the accelerator to move!!!!! Rather than replace the cable or anything drastic, I just took off the little nubby accelerator bushing and sprayed WD-40 (GOBS of it) down the cable and worked it in pretty good, then sprayed more down and into it, then more all over it, and more and more, and then put it all back together.
Smoove as buttah.
