Step 2: Why the Slack.

I removed the holding clip and it is clear the cable sleeve holder needs to be moved back. This is causing the slack.

Step 3: Removing the Slack.

Pulling the sleeve back and fitting the retaining clip back in place, the gas pedal is now firm. Driving quality is a little better now.
