Is the cable actually snapped? You may need to just put a new cable on it.

If you pull on the throttle cable where it comes through the firewall does it work the throttle body?

Is this a 1.8 or 2.0?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
1.8
Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Ok. There is an accelerator pedal position sensor that is part of the pedal assembly. So the pedal is working a position sensor.

Expert:  EricFromCT replied 1 year ago.

Did you figure anything out? Did you find a way to attach the line? Do you have a picture you can send me?
