Rubber Pedal Part #

Recommended Posts

I want to replace my cluth and brake rubber pedals on my 98' Boxster. Does anybody have part #'s? How hard is it to remove the old and replace?

Thanks in advance,

Dave

Dan Feinberg gave me his set a few years ago after he switched to aluminum. I'll give them to you at one of the local events if I can remember where I put them.

Thanks for both your replies Scott and Toolpants. Question, if I went to the aluminum ones, don't they just bolt right onto my existing rubber ones? I see them for sale, but want to be sure before I purchase.

Regards,

David

They can either bolt on, or bolt through. I prefer bolt through due to the inability for it to change positions, at the most inopportune time. :drive:

The stock Boxster pedal is made from from plastic [or some type super Porsche synthetic ;>). I would use drywall screws to drill through, they have any aggressive pattern, where as sheet metal screws are less aggressive and lack the self tapping ability.

I would not use self tapers due to not looking flush when screwed in, the dry wall screws will need to be touched up with a little silver paint [if you have too].

Just my two cents,

BTW- you could just paint your stock pedals silver for that racy look [just not were the foot makes contact]. :eek:

You have to drill holes to bolt on the aluminum "racing" pedals. The clutch is plastic. The brake is metal. You remove the rubber covers to drill for the screws, and they are bolted from the back of the pedals.

Normally the rubber covers are removed, but I have seen them with the covers still on. Whatever you want to do.

Carcrafter has some metal pedals that they say slide on as a replacement to the rubber covers. Never seen them in person.

All,

Thanks for all the information and feedback. I didn't know that I had to drill holes to mount the Aluminum pedals. I guess I'll just replace the current rubber ones.

Regards,

Dave
