Andy, the I think the mechanism you are describing is part of the cruise control.

The accelerator mechanism is below that. Its a flat carriage that slides fore and aft. If you depress the accelerator pedal, that carriage should slide if it does not, you may have a broken cable. If that is the case, take a look at this thread
