    Removing accelerator pedal

    Does anyone have any tips/tricks for removing the accelerator? Got myself some s3 pedals and spent about 45mins trying to work out how to fit them this morning!

    I removed the bolt under the little cover which loosened up the whole thing, then put two flat head screwdrivers into the front 2 gaps pushing them both in at the same time and trying to lift the accelerator however it didn't seem to budge. Anyone got any tips? Hopefully there's something I missed!

    To release the clips, one needs to be pushed in and the other needs to pushed to the side. If you look at your new pedal you will see what i mean. Also a long narrow screwdriver is needed to catch one of the clips as it an awkward angle.

    The proper tool is in the shape of a fork if that helps.
