The throttle cable and pedal are replaceable in case of breakage or for repair
We show on 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 similar.
To do the job, you need tools: a 13 wrench, a special plastic mounting spatula or a flat-blade screwdriver.
Removing the gas pedal (throttle control)
In the cabin, under the instrument panel, we pry the pressure washer for fastening the soundproofing coating with a plastic mounting blade
Remove 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 compress the clamps of the wiring harness block and disconnect the wire blocks from the pedal position sensor
Unscrew the nuts securing the pedal bracket to the bulkhead and remove the pedal
Install the pedal in reverse order.
Adjusting and replacing the throttle cable of the K4M engine
If the throttle valve on the K4M engine does not open or close completely, you need to adjust the throttle cable.
Lightly press with your finger in section "A" from the bracket "B" of the cable sheath 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 should be closed, and when the pedal is pressed all the way, it should be fully open (in this case, the damper drive lever should not have additional travel).
To adjust, remove the spring clip from the tip of the cable sheath.
Slide the tip in or out to the desired length from the bracket on the head cover.
After that, we fix the position of the tip by inserting the spring clip 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 sticks, replace the cable.
Move the drive lever to the open throttle position
Disconnect the end of the cable 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
We remove the noise silencer (article - Removing and installing the air intake and resonator Renault Duster)
Under the instrument panel in the car, remove the tip of the cable from the groove of the pedal lever
Remove the cable into the engine compartment
Install the cable in the reverse order and adjust the throttle position.
