GTI Pedals has been on my list for sometime, and managed to hold of a set for a few weeks but never have the time or weather been bad to get it install.. At Last!!!!

Although it seems a very simple mod but if you don't spend enough time and care, you will soon find many broke bits everywhere!!! The hardest part i find is to remove the wiring connector at the back and taking the unit out from the floor. There is not enough room behind to get both hand to undo the lock and pull at the same time. Undo the lock and removing the unit from the floor wasn't too easy, had to be careful not to break the catch as the GTI unit i got had the clip broken off when they remove from the car.

Because the GTI pedal had a broken clip that secure to the floor, i had to swap it with mine own unit, which isn't too hard as long as you take care when undo all the clips when removing the bits..

There is just 1 screw at the top to hold the unit down on the floor + the 2 locking clip at the front of the unit. To remove them, just put a flat thin screw driver in the little slow at the front.
For the left side, once in push towards the right. For the right side, once in just push inward.

To remove the pedal itself, simple remove the side cover by releasing the clips from the bottom. Next you will need to use abit of force to pull the pedal away from the unit. There is a catch that holding it down, you will need a screw driver to pull it apart slightly to allow the cover to come off easier. Then before you can slide the pedal off, there is another catch at the bottom of the unit which you need to push it up before it will come off.

Sweet! Great DIY guide too, mate. Any chance you have the part numbers for the accelerator and brake pedals?

Hi,

Currently at work, but I have the part numbers for the Clutch & Brake for a manual g/box (will post them later) but not the accelerator. Surely these are the same for the manual and the DSG? Also, what is the difference between the R32 & GTi pedals?!

Regards,

fM

1k2 721 503 L - GTI manual gas pedal
1k2 723 503 N - R32 manual gas pedal

Brake pedals on Auto / DSG cars are much wider (double the size)
Gas pedal on Auto / DSG cars have kick down switch.
Both GTI and R32 have brushed aluminum finish, GTI have horizontal rubber strips going across, R32 have less rubber strips and in form of R style.

Newbie here - great site - just come across from club touran - Ive got a Touran Sport DSG

found this thread while looking for some info on this pedal conversion for the Touran...

Anyone on here done this?

Have seen it done on some German Tourans, but VAG parts seem to say the throttle pedal is different for the Golf...

Any info/advice welcome please...

Thanks in advance

Aric,

Just received my pedals, and spent about 40 minutes trying to release the wiring connector. Can you explain how this is done please ? There appears to be a grey tab that can bbe pushed downwards (it seems to be spring loaded), but no matter how hard I try the connector won't budge.

Can you offer any assistance please ?

Cheers,

Andrew

Hi Mate,

IIRC, the grey clip pushes down the with your other hand pull the whole plug upwards.

It is a pain in the back side because of the space down there. Best thing to do is to get a short thin screwdriver and use that to push the grey clip down and wiggle the whole plug free.

Hope this helps

cheers

Best thing to do is to remove the gas unit off first, which then will give u abit more space to get to the connector.
As sukh said, if you push the switch down, and get a flat screwdriver and carefully put down the side of the connector and push it out bit by bit both side, it will help you to release the connector.

Many thanks to Aric and Sukh.

Did the mod this lunchtime, when I knew waht I was doing, the accelerator only took 5 minutes max. I found the easiest way to rmobe the cable was to get some needle nose pliers, push the tab down with one hand and use the priers around the connector moulding, lever the connector out put pivoting the pliers on the top of the accelerator housing (if you know what I mean).

Anyway, all done and I have to say it looks sweeeet.......

Cheers guys.

I believe that you can get these as a kit and comes with a tool to release the bottom fixings of the gas pedal.
