    Sticky throttle pedalon ML

    On the ML the throttle pedal has started to get sticky, i.e. the tick over is to high. Simple cure stick you toe under pedal and lift it up, not ideal. Should I lubricate the pivot ? got to be careful as I can see the fly by wire cables, which must be avoided. Any ideas?
