The cable and the throttle pedal are replaced in case of breakage or for repair
We show by the example of a car equipped with a K4M engine.
On a car with an F4R engine, the pedal lever is different in design, but the operations are performed similarly.
To do the job, you need tools: a 13-inch wrench, a special plastic mounting blade or a flat-bladed screwdriver.
Removing the gas pedal (throttle control)
In the cabin, under the instrument panel, we attach the pressure washer for fixing the noise insulation coating with a plastic mounting blade
Removing the washer
Remove the tip of the cable from the groove of the pedal lever and disconnect the cable
On a car with an F4R engine, we squeeze the clamps of the wiring harness pads and disconnect the wire pads from the pedal position sensor
Unscrew the nuts of the pedal bracket attachment to the front panel and remove the pedal
Install the pedal in reverse order.
Adjustment and replacement of the K4M engine gas cable
If the throttle valve on the K4M engine does not fully open or does not fully close, it is necessary to adjust the cable of its drive.
Easily press your finger on the section "A" from the bracket "B" of the cable sheath attachment to the lever "B" of the damper axis drive.
With proper adjustment, the deflection of the cable should not exceed 3-5 mm.
When the drive pedal is released, the throttle valve must be closed, and when the pedal is pressed all the way down, it must be fully open (at the same time, the lever of the damper drive must not have an additional stroke).
To adjust, remove the spring bracket from the tip of the cable sheath.
We slide or extend the tip from the bracket on the head cover to the desired length.
After that, we fix the position of the tip by inserting the spring bracket into the corresponding groove on the tip.
If it is impossible to achieve full opening or closing of the throttle valve by adjusting the throttle actuator, or the actuator jams, replace the cable.
Shift the drive lever to the open throttle position
Detach the cable tip from the lever
We release the cable by removing the tip of its shell from the bracket on the head cover
We remove the cable sheath from the holder on the bracket of the battery shelf
Removing the noise muffler (article - Removing and installing the air intake and resonator Renault Duster)
Under the instrument panel in the car interior, we remove the tip of the cable from the groove of the pedal lever
We take out the cable into the engine compartment
We install the cable in reverse order and adjust the throttle position.
