Gas pedal removal DIY

Today I installed aftermarket pedals and noticed that there is not a DIY on how to remove the gas pedal. Since this site had been so helpfull to me, I think its my time to contribute.
Here is how to remove the gas pedal:

First look at the back of the gas pedal using a small mirror ( your wife has to have one... ehhh forgot that there are teenagers in this forum that have BMWs...lucky bastards your mom has to have one )

There you will se a clip that has to be pulled to front.

Then you will have to pull a little bit two tabs that are located at base of the gas pedal to release it. Then pull it from the floor of the car.

Now lift it as show, so you can slide the upper part of the pedal to the right side.... and you are done.
Its easier to install the aftermarket gas pedal if you first remove the factory one.
Tip: Use locktite so the nuts will not loose by themselves.

Ahh... and excuse my english.
Hope this helps.

awesome write up.

I'm always having problems cleaning behind the gas pedal. Now I can just remove it.

I'm stuck in this part. How do I actually pull the two tabs? Do I pull from behind the pedal or push from the front? And what sort of tool did you use to reach these tabs?

Look closely at the picture... you have to pull the two tabs from the front of the pedal. A small flat screwdriver will do the trick.

Great write up man, but for the life of me I cannot get it off. I got that first little tab lifted up (toward the engine) but for the life of me I cannot get the damn pedal pulled out of the floor.


edit: nvm got it. THANK YOU

I must be retarded but I can't figure out which clips to push which direction. Even with a mirror and flashlight it is hard to see which way they go. Any additional guidance or closer pictures?
