1992 Mercedes Benz 190e 4 cyl All Wheel Drive Automatic 176337 miles

My little Macy is a 190e, Mercedes Benz. Everything is very well with the car. Up to date fluid changes and what not. She's all I have!
Last night I was running low on fuel so, I pulled over into a gas station I have never used. I put premium gas and started my way home.
On the way home my gas pedal went all the way in to the floor board and didn't pop back out!
I was going no more than 10 miles per hour (like a turtle) and slowing down as I drove. Luckily, I was a block from my home. I coasted into the drive. I put the car into reverse, still no gas pedal action. Everything else is fine though. So, I parked her.
Went out this morning and the pedal came out a little. As I started the car and pumped it, it went back in with a little click, hummmmm.
So, What do ya think could be the problem?

Thank you so much,

Stranded at home!

Thank you so much for the advice!
My uncle fixed but...
Two days ago it happened again and I was stranded on the side of the highway. He rigged it and I made home.
I did not know it was that simple to fix. I truly thought I would need to go to MB and order the whole Trottle cable.
Thank you again! I'm so Happy!!
Heading to Auto zone to pick up a rubber grommet.

You're An Angel, Vinaction!
Have a great day!!
