Prepare the driver’s side working area to get most room and best access: – Move the seat all the way back. – Raise the steering column. – Remove the floor mat(s). – Remove the front panel located under the steering column: – Remove one screw located in the lower right corner of the panel. – Pull the panel forward in the areas indicated by the red arrows, to release the 3 holding clips marked by the red circles. – Remove the lower panel by pulling it downward in the areas indicated by the red arrows, to release the 3 holding clips. 2. Prepare to install the pedal using 4 Allen type bolts, 4 washers, and 4 nuts. 3. Position the new pedal on top of the OEM pedal and attach it temporarily using any type of an adhesive tape (electric, masking, or even a scotch tape). Position the pedal so that the curved surface of the new pedal fits perfectly over the OEM pedal. The new pedal should be slightly raised off the floor, about 1/8th of an inch. 4. Using any kind of center punch or some other pin type tool, mark the 4 holes of the pedal. 5. Remove the new pedal and drill holes in the OEM pedal in the marked spots using a 3.5 mm bit. (it will be easier if you first use a smaller bit and then enlarge the hole to 3.5 mm) 6. Check to make sure the bolts fit in through all the holes. 7. Clean the surface of the OEM pedal thoroughly. 8. Remove the base of the OEM pedal by pushing on the clip indicated by the red arrow, in the direction of the red arrow (from rear towards the pedal).
