    Hi, only just noticed as been driving another car recently that the accelerator in my FR-V is quite slack in that the first 2/3cm of it being pressed does nothing. Is this how it's supposed to be or does the cable need tightening?

    The cable can be tightened, there's a small plate covering the TB. Remove the plate and you can then see and adjust the cable.

    2-3cm sounds like a lot of slack though ! How did it come be some much ?

    Thanks speedy. It might not be quite that much but certainly feels more than it should. I think it has been that way since I had it though maybe not that much.
