    Default How to remove accelerator pedel

    Does anyone know how to remove the accelerator pedel ( rubber ) the part you put you foot on and not the how thing. I did do this once to fit a aftermarket pedel cover but now I am fitting Insignia ones but the memory has totaly failed AGAIN. Just for your info the Insignia large brake pedel cover that is in the auto's does fit and as a added bonus its the SRI/ VXR type so well chuffed as Irmscher failed to cator for us auto guys.

    The insignia cover fits over the rubber cover which is already there. First of all fit the top part of pedal (the rubber bit) over the top of the rubber bit on the pedal, then prize the rest of rubber lip round the pedal. That's what I did.

    When we say rubber do you mean the hard plastic bit because that is what I meant. I have now taken the pedel bit out has I had to get behind it to remove some nuts that were holding the aftermarket cover on. The Insignia cover has a word OBEN in it does that mean top or bottom or neither

    I put the OBEN bit to the top. You just have to patiently prize the rubber lip (albeit feels like plastic) on the Insignia cover around the pedal cover.

    Right ok, now the Insignia cover has rubber flaps which I suppose should wrap around the pedel so do you need to trim the oe pedel just to be sure of a decent fit

    Nope m8 they will fit you don't need to cut or anything just patiently keep trying and you will eventually get the cover fitted.

    I have now got it fitted but as I was saying the rubber flaps of the Insignia cover dont really fit that well at the sides so should I trim the Vectra part or will it be ok or am I just being a fussy ass
