The cable may have cracked the firewall where it comes through and is bending more each time you use or adjust it.

where the cable attaches to the pedal there is a dodgy c shaped clip/brakcet. very common for these to bend/break.

dodgy c bracket where cable connects on pedal = fine
other end of cable where connects to tranny = fine

wtf??? the only conclusion i can come to is the cable has strectched but i just replaced it 3 months ago

yeh mine packed it in about a month ago. my pedal was the complete opposite - almost broke the seat pushing it cause it got that hard. a couple of months before that i repaired the pedal box and firewall due to bending/cracking.
