The linkage that you are seeing me point to is affixed by just popping the "ball ends" by pressure. same as wiper linkage and can get loose OR crack and break with age and likely popped off.
you'll notice, mine has already done this and i've pushed the top ball back on a couple of times, but, has gotten too loose to continue.
notice that i used "metal wire, fishing swivels" to hold mine together in a bind(worked just fine).
went to a junk yard and just got(stole) another.
by the way, it was fun when it happened while i was going into a turn, lost the pedal, and almost got smashed up. . .oh, that rod is connected below to the throttle body and which is why the car will idle fine without being connected but will not have a pedal.
