Squeaking Accelerator Pedal

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

The accelerator pedal on my 2000 C2 Cab has a squeak/slight-stick that is noticeable when very slightly modulating the pressure. Frankly, it is starting to drive me crazy, particularly when needing to very accurately adjust my speed in corners. I have taken the car to the dealer twice to see if they can fix the problem and they lubed everything (including the pedal, throttle cable, etc), but sadly to no avail. Having placed my ear as close as possible to the pedal, it seems to emminate EITHER directly from the pedal joint OR directly from the little metal flange attached to the rear center of the pedal that actually controls the throttle. I tried lubing those myself but the problem has not resolved.

Having searched through the TSBs, I couldn't find anything, but I was wondering if you or any other members might have experienced this problem and if so, what I might be able to do about it. Otherwise, Loren, are you aware of a TSB that I might have overlooked?

Thanks a bunch in advance.

I do not know of any TSBs for the accelerator pedal but I have heard of them getting dirty and giving "poor feel". I think the design changed a couple of times from 2000 to 2003 (for eGas cars) so if you replace it I think you will get the new design. Check with the folks at Sunset Imports (Porsche Parts at Dealer cost) about which pedal assembly will fit your car and pricing.

Thanks a ton. It'll be my first task of the day! Of course, maybe it'll even be reason enough to go with aluminum pedals. :clapping:

hey!

My 2003 C2 also suffers from an uneven accelerator pedal, it has a sticky/notchy feel to it. So I want to take it out and try to lube all the joints. Any tips on how to remove it from the car?
