There is a recall for this. When I had a 535 I had this happen, and I found the recall. I went in demanding to have it done, they said that in their database, my car already had it. So I said f it I'll pay for the part. They sold me a paperclip bent in the shape of two loops on the ends of a stick for like 8 bucks. I think they actually give you two, one for the throttle cable and one for the cruise cable. I went to install it and found the same stupid paperclip already installed... the fix is too weak. I put the 2nd one on top of the first one, and that seemed to make it stiff enough to never return.
