I'd probably start taking apart your steearing collum/dash to get access to that spring. Maybe it just got disconnected some how?

My Ride: 2 pedals - 2 paddles
That's the clutch & brake pedal assy.

This is the accel pedal assy

Our cars are drive by wire. There is a potentiometer (Gas pedal assy) that send a signal to a stepper motor (throttle body assy) that moves our throttle body linkage. You need to check your linkage for binding and free movement. Probably just need to clean your engine around the intake / throttle bodies.

I think it's the little rod that clips in to the pedal
