On my 03 IQ I see significant wear on the forward fork tine. This piece of pot metal forks the break pedal shaft and I'm sure the wear I see is reducing the amount the shaft turns and increasing the slack or peddle delay.....one more nice design by CC

Designed Modular Replacement Life Span.
Make it cheap and then charge large sums for complete assemblies that will wear out just as fast if not faster?
Its just like the lawn mowers here in park, they have sealed bearings for mower blades that wear out in less than a season? They are made out of pot metal body with bearings that are replaceable but being a special size ( NOT STANDARD ) you have to get them only from dealer and only the ( whole new body and bearing ) is available from them?
Very expensive mowers with locked in market for cheap quality parts available?

I really do not like the Club Car throttle design on these DS models were talking about here. Mine is an 05 actually. The bushing everyone mentions has no effect. It is to the left of the throttle and could virtually be removed and not cause the pedal travel problem. The pedal travel problem is a function inherent in the design of the way the fork turns the throttle shaft. It looks to me as if they want to be double sure the parking brake disengages before turning the MCOR at all. By artificially taking some slack out of the fork I was able to get a little extra throttle but that was a temporary fix. I hate the way you have to push the throttle pedal a mile before it does anything at all. I would prefer a separate brake release and a better throttle link to the MCOR. This whole parking brake and throttle assembly is cheaply built and is a horrible design in my opinion.

I'm working on my 02 right now. The drive rod is splined so the wear is on one of the 2 studs on the pedal side of the drive rod. I will put a piece of tubing on the worn one and see if it helps. Crawling under the cart right now.

We are all waiting for "THE SOLUTION" to your carts problem.
Lots of IQ and President carts coming into park, sooner or later will be faced with problems from one??
Also just got a GEM car in park that I am told is an IQ style cart, but havent seen what it has yet.

Can't believe that little bit of wear would make all that peddle slop. I now have peddle travel back to were it should be. Probably have to put a new piece on every now and then or just turn it a little. Didn't look at the brake pedal Scotty, next time
