I have a 1997 525i and the gas pedal it sticky (not a smooth movement when you press down) I have heard there are specific grease points on the throttle body. Is this true what should i use and where are they?


Thanks in advance

I can't think of anything other than the pivoting points under the gas pedal-through the fire wall linkages..spray some white grease if any...the rest is one cable connected to the throttle body itself (adjustable and spring loaded)..that is what I have on my 528i. You may want to consider adjusting the cable from its throttle body connection/spray some white grease....this will adjust/determine how far the pedal will travel before it is floored.
