MOPAR Gas pedal cover install

I have installed the MOPAR brake pedal cover and it took time as everyone says but not too difficult. Just lots of patience.

I am having problems with the gas pedal cover. I have slid the cover onto the pedal with no problem but I am unable to push it down far enough for the locking tabs to engage.

Has anyone else had this problem and is there a solution. I don't want to break the pedal itself.

Thanks.

Figured it out.

I just took the pedal assembly off (three nuts) and it slid on easy.

They look great.

Thanks.

I wish I read this post a couple of days ago, I broke my Mopar Gas pedal (cheap brittle plastic) and I gave up indiscust on the brake pedal.

Re: MOPAR Gas pedal cover install

For the brake pedal, I heated it up with a hair dryer to make it pliable - got top and right side on easily - used a wide blade stubby screwdriver to reach behind, over the metal, and lifted small sections of the edge at a time - took about 5 minutes and no skinned knuckles. Do not use soapy water or WD-40 as others have suggested. It just makes a big mess and the pedal slippery, because you are going to need a good grip and I don't see any way around using the screwdriver.

For the gas pedal, I got the "hooks" over the right pedal side - made sure the top and bottom were aligned (it's actually a pretty tight fit) - lined up the tabs on the left side - then used my foot to press the tabs into place while sitting in the drivers seat. Took quite an effort, but that "snap" when it clicked into place was very satisfying.

Hope I never have to take them off for replacement, as I do not think the gas pedal would come off again without the tabs breaking.

Re: MOPAR Gas pedal cover install

I recommend using a mirror and flashlight so you can see the back of the pedal.

Gas pedal - It's critical to get the top and bottom aligned and to get the tabs on the left aligned. Next press the upper "hook" - it popped right on for me (with hand pressure only, no tools). Finally, press the bottom "hook". If the pedal is aligned properly, it should be easy.

Brake pedal - Put the bottom and sides on first (by hand), then work on the top (with a small screw driver). You really need a light and mirror to see what you're doing. It takes a little patience.

Re: MOPAR Gas pedal cover install

i left the brake pedal in hot water for 5 minutes and used a pair of vice grips for the gas pedal it took about 10 minutes for the brake and 2 minutes for the gas pedal.
