Anyone know where I can get an accelerator cable from as every where I seem have have rang they seem to respond with sorry it's no longer listed.i need one desperately and I'm really struggling to come up with someone to supply me with one.

VW Heritage can supply them. Just make sure they supply the correct one. For some reason they often quote LHD part numbers.

Sure they quoted me about £15 or so when I asked them.

http://www.oemepc.com/vw/part_single/catalog/vw/markt/RDW/modell/PO/year/1991/drive_standart/120/hg_ug/721/subcategory/50000/part_id/3688538/lang/e#sec_17

A bit late now but the part number for the cable is;

RHD G40 Throttle cable: 868721555a (cancelled 01/07/11)
£18.53 - http://www.allcarpartsfast.co.uk/vw-audi-seat-skoda/vw-audi-seat-skoda-868721555a-cable/
€28.88 - https://www.paruzzi.com/de/vwcp/?&zoektrefwoord=868721555A

No idea if they're any good or not, just literally stuck the part number into google and searched the first page results. May be worth getting the £18 one if it'll be there in a couple of days, you can always keep one for a spare, especially if it's this much of an issue to get one in the first place!

G40 Throttle cable clip (for setting cable tension); N90095603

G40 Throttle cable clip (the clip that fixes the cable to the throttle body- the annoying one!); 046129559
