Default Stiff accelerator pedal

hey guys i got a 2.2 hdi 807 a few days ago and the accelerator pedal is pretty stiff, i jacked it up and traced the cable to see if there were any kinks in it but its all fine, any idea what could cause this problem?

Problem is usual the cable wearing a groove inside it's cover. Just where it comes to the throttle body it does a 180 degree loop because of the way it's routed for rhd vehicles. You can try to turn the whole thing round but it doesn't tend to be successful for long. Better a new cable.

If it's anything like a 306 it's a half hour job for an amateur mechanic. Just put the new one in as the old one comes out so you can follow the route.

It goes down the back of the engine in an 807 so not that easy to be honest
