Hey Miggs here again with another install. This was pretty easy, but I couldn't find anything on the inter-webs when I searched, so hopefully this will help someone out. I am installing the Sparco gas pedal from the Sparco pedal set ( Sparco Race Pedal Set Silver 03779AN at RallySportDirect.com ). The purpose of this install is to make heel-toeing easier.
Things you will need:
- 7mm and 12mm socket
- 7mm wrench (or vice-grips as I used)
- Hex key set (I used a T-10 Torx)
- Drill and drill bits (I used .147)
- Pliers (I used needle nose and small adjustable)
- Opposable thumbs and a full set of phalanges
First thing you need to do is the pull the pedal assembly out. This can done by removing two 12mm bolts (circled in green) and a harness clip (boxed in orange).
Once you have the assembly out, you need to remove the OE aluminum cover. Gently pry back the prongs to remove
The next part is the trickiest. You need to map out where you intend to drill bolt holes. I recommend using a paint marker, and starting from the top. I only used 3 of the 4 pre-drilled holes, although you could easily get away with only using two. Once you have the first hole drilled, put the new pedal cover on, securing loosely with a bolt. Rotate the cover until you have decided your next drill location. Start the hole, then rotate the cover out of the way and finish drilling. Repeat until complete.
Here is the finished product, ready to be reinstalled!
After you install, you may get a check engine light and traction control light. These are for low voltage at the accelerator pedal; if you have an AccessPort, clear the codes and restart. If not, you can clear them by pulling the negative battery terminal and depressing the brake pedal. They may clear on their own after driving, but I cleared mine prior. After initial impressions, I am very happy! Not sure If I will install the other two pedals, but if I do I will edit this post. Enjoy!
