    Aluminium Accelerator Pedal

    Thinking of upgrading to one these.

    https://sslrelay.com/s74326199.onean...dex.shopscript

    Has anyone fitted one?

    Is it a case of a couple of screws and "hay-presto" or are there more sinister connections/wires at work?

    Any advice would be gratefully received.

    Cheers

    Thats just a link to the shop homepage.


    If it's the Gti accel pedal it's a very easy swap along with the other pedal covers. Fitting is pretty straightforward. Undo a couple of screws, remove the cable connector. Takes a bit of brute force to do though.

    It's not too bad a job. Just make sure you fully press in the release catch until it clicks. Then the cable comes out easily.

    A little how to can be found here. You can't buy them from audi-accessories any more but they are available on vagparts.com.
    I'm an optimist but I don't think it helps much.
