Maybe Gas link break down ?

It was a bad day for me. Today I drove MY 03 996 C2 down the road, all of a suddent, something under the gas pedal break and the pedal won't back up when release. Also, even with full depth push, there is no response of throttle. The pedal is pretty much free play. I am thinking to temp. fix myself if I could. By crawling underneath, I can see a screw on the top left corner. I doubt if this is the screw to remove gas pedal? Does it sound like a problem I can fix myself without getting new parts? The car is under warranty, I don't know if I can temporarily fix it and drive to a dealer or have a flatbed to tow it. Any opinion is appreciated.

Finally get the car back from dealer. The parts took about 10 days to arrive. After the repair, the throttle becomes smoother. Before, when the car is in 1st or 2nd gear, it will hesitate at the very beginning when push up the speed. Also, it seems that there is a 3-stage switch to control speed in different timing even though the pressure on the pedal is holding at the same level. Now, the throttle is up very smoothly without hesitate. I think the e-gas pedal plays a significant role on the throttle performance. It's not like a cable control situation, your foot can't really do any tiny adjustment to make the throtlle response the same.
