Somehow I managed to break the spring under the throttle pedal. Where I can find this part? The throttle pedal is tilting forward and I want to restore it…

spring between plastic pedal and metal?
Try junk yards.

Pedal and spring is same on many GM cars/trucks, The plastic "bearing" to mount to firewall too on cars uses metal rods. Others w/ stamped metal may or not use same pedal w/ different springs.
Look for pedal holes w/o being worn out or have oil on it. Oil/grease holds dirt and wears faster.
See http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/132523.html

Get whole thing and switch at home. Carefully remove the "clip" w/o damage to plastic. Get new "clips" at many parts/hardware stores.

I was actually going to replace my gas pedal because the thing looks like it's held together with zip ties. Haven't gotten around to it yet...

While it's on my mind though, is there a secret maneuver to removing that clip that holds the pedal on?

Not really. The clip can be cut off, break, etc.
You can pry it too but the plastic will get damage. I didn't care because pedal only good for pictures in that thread.

If you lube the spring and shaft... use Dry Teflon types. Dry types won't hold dirt etc. Avoid soaking plastic as some dry formulas have binders/solvents that could attack the plastic. Many will say don't use them w/ plastics.

Thanks Orge but unfortunately no parts available in Greece for old American cars.
Anyone knows other car that has the same gas pedal, from an Opel maybe?
