check the throttle body under the hood, or the cable, you cna start the car and lift the hood and pull the throttle back from under the hood, see if it is getting stuck under there. could be that the cable is getting bad or frayed or whatever. but check under the hood. cheers

you could replace the little hinge peice on it, maybe it is just messing up due to wear. i'm not sure what part number this would be or anything, it may be the entire pedal that you have to replace. but if its not in the throttle body and you're sure, then just replace the hinge peice or the pedal. you could take one from a junked e36 or something pretty cheap.

cheers, hope you get it sorted out!
