XD Auto to Manual Pedal Box

Has anyone here changed the pedal box in a XD V8 from an Auto to Manual? Can i just remove the rod from the manual box and move the rod and the clutch/brake pedal to the auto box? or are the boxes different? do I need to remove the dash to get it out? is it easier to just swap the entire box over ... auto's drive me batty

Any help would be greatly appreciated

No need to swap the lot over,just the pedals and a longer pin for them.

Ok cool, i havent had a chance to get back to my ford yet .. but from my last encounter I assumed that I would have to remove the dash to get the pin out .. has anyone done this without having to remove the dash? or did i just miss something totaly obvious

Any problem is best aproached sideways ... with a crowbar

No you can do it easily without removing the dash etc.

Re: XD Auto to Manual Pedal Box

I just removed the rod and stuck the brake and clutch pedals in. You don't need to remove the whole pedal box.....that would be a big job Actually, I lie, I just did the clutch pedal and hit the fat brake pedal with an angle grinder

It's a bit squeezy down there with the console getting in the way, but a few double jointed elbows come in handy.
