Porsche aluminium sports pedals

Recommended Posts


I just received my sports pedals bought on ebay but I don't like the screws deliverde with it, they are just regular philips srews (does look cheap!), As from what I have seen the porsche and ruf (see picture below) they have hex or torx srews or am I wrong? could someone post a close up piture of the original screws

Also for the installation I have read so many things here (yes I did a search before asking)

For the footrest do I have to remove the original plastic one? Are the screws selftapping then?

Do I have to remove the rubber on brake and clutch pedals?

Is there a TSB or so for the installation of the OEM porsche aluminium pedals?

could I order the screws separately?

thank you

if you don't like the screws they sent you, take the screws to Home Depot, match up the size with screws you like and install them! ;)

yes, you need to remove the rubber on the brake and clutch pedals. you can put the deadpedal/footrest right over the existing plastic pedal, same for gas pedal. in all honesty, you can use any installation method that works. some people have used epoxy to glue the deadpedal/gas pedal to the existing pedals, because the screws proved too difficult.

one caveat on the brake and clutch pedals. the brake pedal is metal while the clutch pedal is plastic, so the brake pedal is a little harder to drill through. anyway, on the back of the brake/clutch pedals, note where the 'shaft' (the arm that the actual pedal rests on, goes up into the dash) - note where the arm begins to extend from the back of the pedal. if you drill too close to this area, you will not be able to get the nuts onto the bolts/screws that you're using. i speak from experience, so make sure you drill far enough to the side from that part of the pedal.

I just put mine on and the drilling is a bit**. I ended up using my electric drill rather than my 14v battery drill. Also, the dead rest on my 997 came off and I was able to drill the holes and line it up prior to installing. They look really good. I'll post photos of them. I was a little bummed too. They advertised hex screws and sent me phillips. What a rip!! I'm heading to Lowes later for the match-up so I can ditch the phillips. Good luck.
