throttle linkage on a Mercedes 300CD

I have a 1982 300CD Turbodiesel and where the throttle linkage comes out of the firewall is floating and I only get half a pedal at times. I think there is also a spring further along that is missing as well. Can anyone tell me the part names for the linkage so I can order the proper ones?

This also was the case on my 1982 300D when I got it, and it made the pedal seem to have a lot of slack before you started getting a response. Putting new parts in made it drive much more responsively. It also seemed in danger of totally losing accelerator control because it would nearly pop all the way out.

I could not find the part here in FastLane. If you go to Performance Products (dot com) the part is called "Accelerator Pivot Mount" and for the 300CD is their part number 30-037 for $33.50.

The replacement part is much better in design and materials - it will outlast the car. You get the part that mounts to the firewall with two bolts, and the plastic bushing part with pivot that turns inside it.

I can't remember any spring - but I'll take a look at the car sometime to make sure.

Thanks to the folks that replied you were more helpful than my local Mercedes dealer.
