Adjustable brake/gas pedals

I have a 2004 Grand Cherokee Ltd with adjustable pedals - the pedals only move a 16th of an inch -- i thought that this was the way it was designed and thought that it was pretty lame. However, at an oil change the attendant adjusted the pedal all the way up about 2 to 3 inches up. the gas pedal stayed on the floor. Now the pedal will not go back to the original position. after looking at the assembly it appears that the gas is all the way down and the brake is all the way up. I think that because of this the system is bound -- does anyone know how to disconnect the slave cable from the brake pedal to the gas pedal with out destroying the system?

I just disconnected the slave cable -- the cable is held in by fitting that i have no idea what the name is but you will have to get a narrow pliers to squeeze the bottom of the fitting then pull the cable out. By the way the silver part will turn some so that you can get a better angle. My theory was that if i could get this disconnected the brake pedal would then move -- but i was wrong. HELP ME!!!!!

no kidding. I did not adjust mine either but the Oil Change guy did now the brake pedal is up to my chest and the gas pedal is on the floor. I removed the slave cable but it did not unlock the Brake pedal still in my chest. -- Think i should wack it with a hammer?

Well I didn't whack it with a hammer but, it did finaly allow me to adjust the pedal down about half way --- much better than it was. When it was adjusted all the way up it was dangerious. I would have to pull my foot all the way up, hitting the steering wheel with my knee, to apply the brakes. Thank goodness I did not have an emergency while it was up. Now I will keep pushing the button to get it further down -- when it is fixed I will un plug the power to the motor. Note: it is extremely hard to get a plier on the fitting unless you turn the silver end around a little so you can get at it.

I'd go hit the oil change guy with a hammer.

93 red ZJ 190k 4.0. Spent more money than I should have ...

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
