Re: XF manual conversion

Its not as hard as you think to change it over yourself. First of all your undo the 2 bolts holding the steering column up, then when u have dropped that down...you will see 2 more bolts holding your pedal box in. There will be 2 other bolts on the firewall also holding it in. Then pop the clip off your brake pedal that comes from the brake master cylinder under the dash. Unscrew the brake switch while your there. Then basically its a straightforward reversal to put new pedal box in. Your firewall should already have a hole for the clutch cable to go through...unless your gonna run a hydraulic setup. Then its a matter of dropping the old box out..putting the new one in. Otherwise like you asked...if you want some1 else to do it, will prolly be about $400-700 depening who u see

Don't forget the spacer ring for your starter motor fitting to your bellhousing.

Thats for a V8 bellhousing anyway..........not too sure how the 6's go.

I converted my XD to manual.....toploader. Best thing I ever did!
