About 3 weeks to wait for my viper 1.4 manual. Have ordered the non GT scirocco due to company car limitations :cry: but I have managed to include fogs, parking sensors, sun roof, folding mirrors, cruise and dynaudio sound pack :p .
I have the metal pedals, premium sills and mud flaps in the garage (not sure about the mud flaps after I bought them! :oops: ) waiting for the day. I note the instructions on the accelerator pedal say (of course) that only VW should fit it as only they can test it properley after fitting. It looks fairly simple to change but I wonder if there is any calibration to be done with the new pedal? Can anyone offer any advise on this - from anyone who didn't get VW to fit them?

right fitting the ally pedals the brake pedal was easy peel the old one off from the top then replace its just a push fit, sort of the same for the clutch apart from it has two small holes and the pedal cap has two cones shaped rubbers, lube the rubbers (wd40) line the rubbers up with the holes then press into place next grip the protruding rubbers with pliers and pull into place, remove the throttle pedal, with a small screwdriver remove oval cap then remove 10mm headed screw. next the wiring, the connect has a red lock on it push that up first then pull the connector off, i dident have the vw tool to release the clips at the bottom of the throttle assembly so i had a good look at the new one to see how it fitted and used two small screwdrivers to do the job but be patient it took me 20mins to get the bottom released, 3 hands are handy for that last bit, finally refit the new one snap the bottom in place replace the bolt refit the wiring connector remember to push the red lock down, job done, any questions please ask away, i used a can of wd40, 10mm socket & ratchet with short extension, 2 small screwdrivers and a pair of pliers, if i had known what i know now i would have ordered the vw removal tool too, i hope this will be some help to some of you, Cheers Rich

see copy of instructions on my photobucket
fig 1 is the tools you need, ratchet, short extenston, 10mm socket, pair of pliers, small flat screwdriver, can of lube

fig 3 replacing the brake cap push fit easy peasy
fig 4 relpacing the clutch cap

fig 7 use the tool or two screwdrivers 1 very thin terminal type, very tricky this part.the base it locks onto two posts, you have to push forward with one and to the right with another and lift the pedal at the same time, buy the tool

REMEMBER TO TEST IT

Thanks for the quick response! Might as well order the tool too as Im sure the price will be negligable compared to all the addons and I have 3 weeks to go before I get the car! I did wonder what the spray can contained when I looked at the instructions which came with mine. Never thought that it was rubber lube. Thanks again for the explanations - most useful! Cheers..
