Identifying 'Break Away' Pedal box

Is there an easy way to identify the new 'break away' pedal box that is now apparently being fitted to all BA's? Can we identify it by some sort of physical component difference or a different part number somewhere? Or is it just a matter of identifying the build date?

Also, what units are affected - adjustable auto, non-adjustable auto, manual or all/some of the above?

Re: Identifying 'Break Away' Pedal box

What the hells a 'break away' pedal box? The only break away pedal boxes I know of were on E-Series where the clutch pivot welds broke. But that's a different matter...

I found out all about that problem driving home in my EF XR6 through Melbourne from Mr & Mrs xa-coupe's place one night.

NOT impressed!

I am referring to the new safety pedal units that were developed for the Fairlane/LTD, and have since been quietly added to the rest of the BA range.

I found out all about that problem after the footy driving a mate back home. No it wasn't much fun stuck on West Fyans street trying to cross over La Trobe terrace in footy traffic!

Once again sorry for going off topic on your thread Luke.

My mistake,

The Clutch Pivot Broke when I was trying to reverse into a parrallel park in Town!

The Rubber Insulator at the Clutch Fork let go on the way home from Mr & Mrs XA's place.

Sorry to Hijack (tm) the thread again.

Re: Identifying 'Break Away' Pedal box

About the only chance you have is to look for the decoupler unit on the pedal box - or if you can read the part number on it they should be as follows:

All start with BA 2450 - and then have the following letters appended - the first letter is the early series and the latter is for the break away pedals.

4 Speed Auto non adjustable = F and L
4 Speed Auto adjustable = H or K
5 Speed Manual = G or J.

Cheers
Russ

Re: Identifying 'Break Away' Pedal box

Luke, The feature that you refer to is called Anti Intrusion Pedals. It allows the brake pedal to de-couple from the brake booster push rod when the vehicle is involved in a major collision. It is a safety feature designed to minimize lower leg injury in case of an accident.The actual operating principle is quite simple when you see it but a little more complex to put into text.If you would like to read about it, PM me and i'll email you the info regarding the description and operation.
