    If you had . . . . . . . . . . .

    well then Mr.NoDriveByWire ,

    you need to inspect from your gas pedal
    all the way to the throttle housing for a problem

    and if you did have drive by wire?
    you DO NOT buy used gas pedals,
    and you DO need to order the securing

    Re: If the plastic clip always breaks when removed,

    You are right it does not look like the drive by wire pedal assemblies I saw on line. Does that change your opinion of what the problem could be?

    If the plastic clip always breaks when removed,

    how is it going to be intact on a used unit?
    And where did you get that number? Not even the right number of digits as far as I can see.
    When I look up your car, it looks to me like you have a Bowden cable connecting your pedal to the engine, and not drive by wire. Can you examine and confirm which you have?

    Is this your unit?

    Re: sticky wickit

    Thanks for the input. If I buy a used pedal/footrest assembly with sensor, will it come with the plastic clip in tact? Also, the p/n looks like it would be 259160-10 -is this right?

    sticky wickit

    try a new gas pedal - really -
    it contains a position sender,
    very commom for it to be sticky
    no lubrication or adjustment possible

    just replace the gas pedal assembly and get a new
    plastic securing clip - the old one will break
    on removal. It's just a plug-n-play.
    no programming needed

    just an opinion though.............
    it could always be something else ?

    throttle delay

    I've got a 1999 328i with manual trans. When I put in the clutch before shifting, there is a delay in the throttle before it drops off so the it makes it sound like my foot is still on the gas after the clutch is in. To say it a little differently, there is a little spike in the rpm when I put in the clutch even though my foot is not on the gas. It is annoying. I've had a number of manual trans BMW's and have never run into this before. Could it be a throttle position sensor or a sticking throttle valve? I've had the car for about 2 years and it has around 160K. It runs very well and the clutch seems okay.
