I know there is a DIY on this site but it confuses me and i tried to search but didnt find anything... I was just wondering if you could just screw it on without taking screws out and then taking the trim off and then ripping the old dead pedal out etc...

Thanks

I installed the replica ACS Dead pedal on mine, but I believe it's exactly the same install as an origional.

Position the dead pedal in the place you want it and mark the holes with a sharpie or something.

Drill holes that are slightly smaller then the screws (remember you can always drill a bigger hole if it's not big enough).

Screw in dead pedal, be carful not to over tighten since the screws are just going into plastic.

Very simple install, takes 5 minutes max.

All AC Schnitzer products come with pretty thorough installation instructions. I don't think a DIY would have anything worthwhile to add :dunno:

I would remove the original dead pedal and attach the ACS one while it was out of the car. Not only will this be much easier, but you'll be able to use fasteners on the back if needed. Good luck, but I don't think you'll need it. It should be very easy to fix :)

Use a good high speed drill & bit and patience :) A block of wood or something under the pedal helps too.
