Hi all, I have searched the forum top and bottom and in the process found about 2 million threads telling me what to remove and when to remove it, they have been kind of helpful.

But my question is, what the hell do I remove it with? I have tried every socket combination I own and none of them fit in the gap well enough to get some leverage on the nuts. If somebody who has successfully removed theirs could share some knowledge that would be great.

Thanks,

James

PS sorry for doing another thread about accelerator pedals but I couldn't find the answer anywhere.

Don't know if it's the same on the VY but on my Monaro I just got a screwdriver and levered it off the pin (stretched it a little which was ok as it went back into shape no worries). Did the reverse putting the new pedal on, be sure to get the spring right as that could be annoying if you have to remove and refit again.

You managed to get the old pedal off and the new pedal on without removing the whole assembly from the car? That gives me hope! Thanks.

How did you manoeuvre your body so that you could actually see what you were doing?

Sit on the floor outside of your car, and reach in.

You don't need to remove the whole assembly to remove the pedal, it's just a simple spring behind the pedal, just gets frustrating as you can't see it. You gotta feel it to know it lol if that makes sense.

you could look from behind if you've got a small mirror, if not usually a women's make up draw has heaps.....
