Heavy throttle on 1995 E320 Cabriolet?
I have a 1995 MB E320 Cabriolet. It's a real sweetheart.
One of the few issues I have with it, is that it has a very heavy throttle. I've also driven several 450SL and 560 SL's, and they also had this issue, I'm wondering if it were designed this way.
Have to press the accelerator a lot harder than I'm used to, to get the car to move forward. Though once it starts, it's nice, smooth, and powerful. Maybe all MBs are this way, and I just have to get used to it?
I wouldn't mind going in and cleaning out the entire throttle linkage, lubing it, and maybe even putting a counter-spring on it to lessen the pedal force. Can this be done? Where can I find diagrams of the throttle pedal linkage for a 1995 E320?
