Okay, its not the pedal assembly, it is just the cable in the tube.  When
someone else operates the pedal while I grip the tube in back, I can feel
that that is where it is coming from.  No it is not sawing through anything,
and yes everything looks installed right...  The Bentley says to lubricate
the cable with molybdenum grease when installing it, could it be this
simple?  ("simple" being relative)
What does "Bowden housing" refer to?
