    Only about £19 from Renault and make sure you use genuine, easy enough if you tie the new one to the end of the old one to get the routing correct.
    Don't forget to reset the rachet mechanism on the pedal.

    exactly the same thing happened to me at a set of traffice lights in Ipswich!! the garage where I bought her from in Sudbury came out and towed her back [they are brilliant to me] FOC and got her sorted but it was a bugger to do - if I remember it was around £150 - they had to get at it from underneath I think.

    Yes, easiest if done from underneath.

    The ratchet mechanism is simple, as the cable or clutch wears the teeth slide along each other to allow the pedal to be in the same place, easy to reset, just pull them apart (spring loaded) and put them at the beginning, will probably moves loads straight away as the clutch will still be worn.

    Pain in the arse to do. cables about £15 from renault. Dont forget to tie/connect the new cable to the old one for when you pull it throught the bulk head. Right pain in the arse otherwise. :D
