Attend to this problem. Thanks for your comments, but I don't think it's the cable. The clutch has been heavy since the car was new and there was no change (in that, anyway -- I did notice a bit less friction) when the cable was replaced after it did break some time ago. No mechanic has ever mentioned the force as a problem so I have no reason to suspect that the cable is about to break again. -- Doug Schwarz dmschwarz&ieee,org Make obvious changes to get real email address.
