I saw Norb's old old post about this happening to him, so I'm wondering if anyone else has had it happen, and if there is a DIY solution. The cable just came out of the little ball joint linkage in the throttle area. Tried reinserting the cable end and squeezing the housing, but it ain't moving. Gee it was fun to have the accelerator just drop to the floor at about midnight driving home last night... '99 SLK. TIA.
