How do you remove e36 accelerator pedal?

10 posts in this topic

I want to remove the carpet from my e36. I've been looking online and although it seems like it's asked a lot, I can't work out how to remove the pedal to allow me to get the carpet out!! Any ideas? It's starting to really annoy me.

You checked out real oem? Can be good to give you an idea sometimes.

Do you need to keep the carpet intact? I have just cut the carpet out in the past. You'll want a foot plate in there when the carpet is out. The floor is not flat.

If its like the e46 its got plastic lugs on it so needs the help of a flat blade screwdriver to prise it out

Didn't think about that Gaz, just about to have a look on realoem.

I'd like to keep the carpet intact so that i can sell it. Otherwise i'd have cut it. That's still an option if i can't easily do it, but i'd rather not do that if possible.

I've had a look for plastic lugs but doesn't seem very straight forward.

EDIT: No clue from realoem, just this diagram.

I would have thought the whole pedal assembly will need to come out, which no doubt means you will need to remove a whole load of plastic interior crap to get at it. I guess this isnt really an issue when your stripping it for the track.

Cheers for the pic, i found a guide online late last night which seems easy enough. I will have a look tonight if i get time.

Already removed all of plastic interior crap anyway so access isn't an issue :) If i can't do it easily enough then i will just cut the carpet a couple of inches and hope that's enough to remove it all.
