Firstly, apologies if this is the wrong section to ask in, but please can a Mod move it to the right forum if necessary.

I have recently purchased a 1998 Vauxhall Corsa 1.2i 16v SXI 3dr as my first car (I am currently learning to drive and this is an ideal first car for myself).

Have a few little niggles with it (and I apologise if I describe it a bit odd).

Firstly, I have to press the clutch virtually 3/4 of the way to the floor to find the biting point - is this normal? I have followed a tutorial on here to adjust it and now it is more like 1/2 way down to the floor.

Secondly, the throttle cable feels a little bit loose, and I have to give it quite a bit of welly before it responds. How do you adjust this and is it easy to do for a novice mechanic?

This is my little beast, I've called her "Kitty" just because she purrs like a contented kitten. Not too bad for a 15yr old car.
