About Accelerator Rods

The Mercedes-Benz accelerator rod links the accelerator pedal to the throttle, the valve of which controls the flow of air in your engine and in turn dictates the amount of fuel released into your engine.

The accelerator rod is located under the accelerator pedal in the footwell of your car.

The Mercedes-Benz accelerator rod plays a major role in making sure the throttle valve is able to open fully and the flow of air and fuel in your engine is regulated. A good quality, working Mercedes-Benz accelerator rod will enable smooth functioning of the accelerator pedal when you press your foot on it and a steady, gentle spring return on the accelerator pedal when you release your foot.

An old or worn out Mercedes-Benz accelerator rod can cause problems by not producing adequate force to spin the throttle properly which in turn prevents the throttle valve from opening sufficiently. This means the amount of fuel entering the engine of your car is not being regulated effectively, causing the accelerator pedal to stop working properly. If you are experiencing problems when using the accelerator pedal, seek advice from your mechanic about whether you need to buy a new Mercedes-Benz accelerator rod. 

Mercedes-Benz trivia

  • Karl Benz might have patented the design of his Motorwagen in 1886, but it was his wife who jumped behind the wheel first for a quick (as quick a 0.9hp will deliver) 120-mile tour through the countryside of Germany. Poor Karl didn't even know!
  • In 1924, Mercedes Benz became the first car manufacturer to include brakes on all four of a car's wheels. Not long after, in 1931, they also added suspension springs to the corners of the Mercedes Benz 170.
  • Ever noticed that you've never heard a Mercedes rattle or make any kind of squealing sound? You never will either, because all of their vehicles are welded in up to 10,000 places! You're not going to find a loose nut or bolt rolling around.
  • If you thought self-driving cars were all about Tesla, then it might surprise you to know that Mercedes Benz made an autonomously driving vehicle as early as 1995. It didn't gain popularity, but it became the foundation of the modern driving technology found in every Mercedes Benz.
  • Mercedes Benz cars have always been a big part of the Jurassic Park films, but the first movie went all out, with the stars emerging from a red Mercedes GLE Coupe before walking down the red carpet. Mercedes cars are also used throughout the film franchise.
