Hi all,

I have recently purchased a C3. I have noticed that the throttle has 3-4mm or so or travel before the engine responds. This is rather annoying when pulling away.

Is this normal for this model of car or is there something I can do about it?

Thanks :)

Hello. Its quite normal so you have a better feeling of the pedal, but yes you can tighten the speed pedal.

There is a TPS tips topic for reading here that shows how you can remove the throttle pedal (TPS).
