Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

nice. i failed with the pedals after multiple soapy hot water, heat gun, and gloves/screwdriver attempts. eventually, cut two slits in the top two corners of the rubber gasket to get 'er done.

Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

I had the same problem with brake pedal. Hot soapy water, and small flat head screwdriver and a little brute force worked.

The hairdryer definitely made the difference in getting the brake pedal going. Took about 45 mins of "patience" to get the last corner to go. They look sweet though- well worth the effort.

Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

Holeeeeeeee sheit you weren't kidding on the brake pedal install.

I was close, oh so close, to destroying this thing with a sledgehammer at about 5pm today.

I eventually got them on, and now it hurts to type.

Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

I am still fighting with the brake pedal. I have tried 3 times already and a lot of swearing and fighting I cant still put it on. I will try the heat gun since I only tried the hot water (which made it a lot easier) but not enougth for me to put it on jsut yet. Will try again tonight.

I do have the splash guards installed on my car so I could post some pictures later today.

Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

Holy Chit! Tried for over 45 minutes yesterday on mine as well fella's.....

It's a *itch! What did you use to "snap" the gas pedal down into place. Apparently I'm weak sauce because I couldn't do it with my bare hands. Plyers perhaps?

Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

Laughing with Ya!!!
Out of all the Mod's I've done; including 4 skids, exhaust, CAI, etc... these fricken pedal covers challenged the patience the most!

Throttle was no problem once I realized it had to go on from one side then snapped over.
Might have to "ever so slightly" bend the tangs back out if you've pushed them down hard like I did... then it snaps quickly.

Brake pedal just about had me pondering how to remove the whole pedal arm so I could "see" behind while installing!!

As other's have found... HEAT is your friend! A heat gun, not a hair dryer.
Also, loud free speech imitating tourettes had a calming effect too!

In the end, a quick & simple solution:
I used a few Harbor Tool plastic prybar and trim removing tools... comes as 2 small sets; both less than $8 bucks each!
I hooked the top, applied heat to pedal, then inserted the claw end of plastic tool.
Could then rotate tool against edge of pedal and spreading the rubber pedal lip at the same time allowing it to drop around the metal edge.
Started from the inside lower corner working towards the outside lower corner. Maintaining pressure on top to prevent it from slipping out.

After trying multiple methods, this one worked for me quickly!
Hope it helps!!

Re: Pedal Dress Up Kit and Splash Guards

I did the brake a couple of months ago and its a big PIA as everyone has stated. I didn't use heat nor soapy water, just a flat head and pressure. The biggest thing is as you start I believe I inserted the bottom first, then go along and start to get the lip over the metal brake arm working up the side from the bottom, keep pressure on the new bright pedal to not let it back off again. If you work your way around the brake pedal you'll eventually get to the last spot somewhere on the top, which is the hardest to pull over with a flat head but it will eventually go. Best of luck to anyone in the future, its possible just time consuming and awkward spot.
