Accelerator - can it be stiffened? - oopnorth
Just got a 98 Audi A4 tdi, but am finding the accelerator pedal a bit light - ie it's making my ankle sore holding it midway! Is it possible to fit some sort of tensioner to make it stiffer - and is this a DIY or expensive dealer job?

Its a bit like my Passat tdi. I have a fly by wire system for the throttle, I suspect you do too. And yes its light as there is no cable to push, just a sensor on the pedal.

I find I have a problem when I hit bumps - the throttle "bounces" with my leg and makes the bumps worse. NASA had a similar problem with thier first fly by wire planes.

Dunno if you can change the spring.

Doubt if you can adjust the spring at the 'engine end', but you might add a light return spring to the pedal spindle?
