Angry Having trouble with Sti Pedals

Well, I purchase a set of STi Pedals since the ones that the STi came with where to small and looked a bit boring. I got the Clutch and brake pedals on rather easy but am struggling with the "gas pedal. Its one bolt that slides through and goes trough all the way one side (Left side) that I can never get it to the other hole (Through the second hole) Its frustrating, any one else try these or have any solutions. I have though about removing the whole pedal but have no idea what's involved or if its worth it. See pedals below

i had the same problem when i put mine in, the thing i did was just get a sharp blade, and slice off a thin sliver(sp?) of the gas pedal itself, and then the bolt went in without a problem. That is what i did, might be another way, but that worked for me. Good luck.

It's very frustrating to get the STi gas pedal on. I just wouldn't leave the floor until I got it. Keep trying.

Since you took the time to write a useless post, I will take the time to write a useless (to most people) response.

Ever heard of the phrase "If you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all?" In this case it would be "if you don't have anything useful to say, say nothing at all." So, the pedals work well for you, that's great. I guess everyone is the same size as you or has the same driving style? Really, how does what works for you or what fits your personal preferences have ANY bearing at all on what JDMTEG98 does with his car?

It's posts like yours that drive people to other forums.

Thanks "Mochanges", I agree I have been on this board for a few months and I have done nothing more than help others and try to educate myself and have some fun at the same time.

Please guys just be helpful, your bashing does nothing but piss people off and take up bandwidth. The liking and disliking of the stock pedals is irrelevent.

I have installed 2 sets of those pedals. One set on my old WRX and one set on my STi. The trick is to drill out that hole a little bit. The hole on the right side of the pedal next to the center console. If you widden out that hole you will be able to get the bolt through. Enjoy.

Nice pedals!
I would take out the rubber dead pedal then drill in the STi peadal.

That is how the dead pedal looks?!?!?! I am waiting on these pedals I ordered about a month ago. Looks like I will be leaving the stock dead pedal there and not even use the STi one.

MKIV - I have the same pedal cover set at home (we corresponded on another forum about this at length) and am also disappointed with the dead pedal coverage....sorta thought it would cover the entire thing....although I have not yet held it against to measure. It's too bad really, because the overall feel & quality is top notch....and I (like many, I'd suspect) ordered these to cover the dead pedal 1st and foremost. Not sure what to do now, as I think the others look great but really wanted a matching dead pedal cover.

I did originally put it in the carpet but it would always move around a bit with the carpet. I don't want to drill into the body which would be the ideal mounting solution. By screwing it into the plastic it just gets a better mounting. It doesn't look THAT bad does it?

If you would like to upgrade the deadpedal, but don't like that STi's look, try an Autospeed. I've been really happy with mine, and it provides that extra bit of grip when my shoes are wet



And it looks good, too

Yeah, I thought for sure it would cover the stock dead pedal. It's kind of disappointing since the pedals are nice looking and not cheap. Actually I got my pedals mainly for the wider gas pedal to help with heal toe shifting, looks and dead pedal were next important. It sux but oh well. I will have to decide on using the dead pedal when I get my pedals.

The STi pedals come with a mounting bracket for the dead pedal that it seems no one uses, it works really well but requires some engineering to fit right...I have it in the box while I try to figure it out...

I don't THINK that mounting bracket CAN be used on a left hand drive vehicle (if it's the same set I have)....the place I ordered it from told me to use self-tapping screws instead. You may have a diff't set though.
