accelerator pedal

does anyone know of a quick or easy way to remove the plastic pedal from an EF. The spring doesn't seem to want to come off and the cross pin is also bloody tight.... (and I know aftermarket pedals can be illegal, the stock one has a crack in it and needs replacing)

thanks in advance
Tim

Re: accelerater pedal

so am I to understand that no one has ever had this problem??? that's typical, the only fault I've ever had with the car and it's something that has never happened before....

OK, then does anyone know of a not so quick or easy way to remove the accelerator pedal?

Re: accelerater pedal

Just so you don't think nobody cares. I have gone through my EF/EL repair manual and could not find anything remotely like it.
I personally have never had your problem, so can't be of help to ya.

Tried some CRC or the likes to lubricate it first? If you do, put some rag on the floor so your mats don't get covered. Can't think of anything else without going out in the dark to see what it actuallu looks like.

Good luck

Jon

Re: accelerater pedal

thanks for the reply...
I have a manual too and I'm very surprised it isn't in there, it has just about everything else...

Might have to take off the whole arm.

Re: accelerater pedal

The official Ford workshop manual has nothing either. Just stare at it for a while, then go back inside and give up.
