1998 Elise S1 Throttle linkage popped out

Recommended Posts

When I got my Elise out this spring for it’s first drive, the linkage on the throttle pedal popped out and the engine returned to idle.  I had to climb into the wheelwell and pop it back on.

Has anyone experienced this problem and do you know of a fix?

It was a cool spring day, we have recently moved to (almost) mountains and at the time my (now replaced) battery was dead so after getting it jumped, I had once or twice punched the throttle a bit hard afraid it would stall (but that wasn’t when it popped out).

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
