I've started to strip out all of that black crap around the drivers footwell etc and I noticed that when I moved the steering wheel from left to right, the accelarator (sp?) pedal moves slightly left to right as well.
hard work stripping isnt it? I just need to get some thinners and clean the floor to finish as its all stripped out now, and the floor wasnt too bad - couple of rust spots on the passenger side.
As for the flexing thing, there have been some posts on this do a quick search, but it is normal for there to be a bit of flex.
