You don't need to take off the accelerator pedal. This little tidbit of information should save you quite a bit of time if you can make it work and depending on what you've done so far.

I started off taking all the stuff off to lift the carpet and rolled the carpet to one side, trying to figure out where the clutch line came through. I tried to pull the accelerator pedal out so I could find the hole. After too much time, I decided to go under the car and see if I could feed the line up and snake it into position that way. If figured out this is the easiest if not only way to do it.

After I pushed the clutch line up into position I realized I didn't need to have even taken the carpet up because it just slides up and pokes out a v-notch in the carpet. Although you have probably taken the carpet up by this time you probably didn't have to.

Note - when you go to put the grommet in place for the clutch line, this is a two part grommet. There is an outer and inner grommet. IIRC the inner grommet was already on the clutch line and there is an outter grommet that plugs the hole in the firewall/floorboard that the inner grommet fits up into. Make sure you have this in place before you route the flexible line to the slave cylinder and bleed your clutch!

Hope this helps - good luck.
