    Quick update for the DSG people out there...

    I've spoken to my supplier and I should have the DSG accel pedals I am waiting for either thursday or friday. So fingers crossed I will get them in the post to you saturday (or earlier work permitting)

    Thanks for hanging in there /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Glad your happy /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif You definately need to be a brutal with the accel pedal!

    Those Rs4's on your car look the dog's like I said just need to decide if I get it chipped first or go for a new set of rims... decisions decisions decision.

    Oh and your car goes like stink, you shot off like a scalded cat!

    it is only a 2 minute job... /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Brute force is required...

    Remove the cap undo the screw. At the base of the accel pedal theres 2 metal posts that it clips to, you need to get a falt balde screw driver to life the pedal up and then use 2 screw drviers to release the plastic clips. If you look at the pedal you'll see there's 2 slots to access the clips.

    You do need to use a fair amount of force though!

    To remove the cable when you have released the pedal use a flat blade screw driver to remove the cable, theres a flat square cutout which is the release for the plug.

    If that doesn't make sense drop me a line and I'll take some piccies to illustrate what I mean.

    Don't worry I'm sure CupraMax will pipe up as well. It does require a fair amount of force.

    Yes, I trashed my old one getting it out /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif. If you look at the new pedal you will see how the mountings release. The left hand side will release if you stuff a screwdriver under the left front of the pedal and push it in, the right hand side you need to do the same but from the right edge not the front. Lift the pedal as you are doint this, (obviously undo the bolt which is under the plastic cover to the left of the pedal first...)

    The release the cable you'll notice a light grey part at the top of the cable connector which moves down if you push it, you need to push this back down towards the peddle until it goes click ( you will have to be a lot more brutal with this than you think) once its clicked the connector comes out easy as anything.

    Rudely woken by postie ringing the bloody door bell at 7am this morning - after a heavy Friday night session too - b@stard!

    Thanks for the pedals J....!!

    Waited until I could see, feel and hear again before attempting fitment. Finally started at 4pm all done by 4.20pm. Nice easy mod. Look good too.

    I'm going to make an ally dead pedal 'tread plate' outta some ally sheet when I can get some time on the milling m/c. Should be able to match the ally pedals reasonably well. I'll post some pic's when I've done.

    Thanks again J.

    stevieboy, I wish mine had been as easy as yours, took me all of 35 minutes, 5 minutes undoing and refitting everything EXCEPT the bloomin' wiring connector, b'stard thing took 30 minutes to get off!

    One set of skinned knuckles and a whole new vocabulary of swearwords directed at the gods of electrical connectors!

    Now its done, it looks the dogs!

    Thanks again J, now where are the Band Aids?

    I stuck the tip of a large screwdriver in the gap at the base of the connector. It's a bit of a weird angle of attack (brace yourself girl!) but rotating the driver CCW whilst pushing down the grey release tab seemed to work!

    I was still slightly under the affluance of incahol though...

    Glad everyones pleased! Shame a few had a few troubles removing the old ones /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    Again all I can do is apologise for the delay in getting them unfortunately the factory in germany decided to have them on back order. Goes to show how many Gti's are being built.

    Thanks everyone /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif Now what shall we do next?

    Cupra let me know what sort of price you can get as I happen to have an FK contact...

    I'm assuming these are for cars without Xenons?

    I can get you a price on the armrest if you like. Someone would need to supply the part numbers tho...

    Normally the price is Vag-parts price minus about 10% but with cheaper P&P - I either collect the parts fo teh guy drops them round my house. Then you just pay whatever the post office charge plus a very small amount for bubble wrap/brown paper etc.
