Adjusting Pre 2006 S2 Exige pedal box

Post by evo_ufo » Sat Apr 01, 2006 9:21 pm

Pedal Adjustment

Lowering the accelerator and raising the brake to improve heal and toeing.

Sorry about the quality, but its the content that counts.

I've just had this done. It's made a huge difference to the enjoyment of the car, though it does still feel as though there's a bit too much travel in the brake pedal. vast improvement and worth going for. some new pagids helped too.

Denis,

How much does it cost to get done? Car's going in for some work later this month and considered asking them to do the necessary adjustments.

Its not a big job. Just be sure that they know exactly what you want done. Some dealers aren't very keen on making the adjustments, and will just raise the brake without lowering the throttle. While this helps its not really good enough.

I ended up getting the bolts myself and a friend helped me make the adjustments. It took us about an hour.

I'd say its a must have change, as its transformed my enjoyment of the car.

sorry for not coming back sooner. some dealers seem to do it for free, others have charged about �40.

Evo-ufo's right - take in a print of the work to be done, so they're clear about what to do.

It's an absolute must, even if my own heel/toe technique still requires work too!

Thanks for posting the instructions - very useful. I set out last night to make the adjustments, thinking it would be easy, an hour and a half later and a lot of swearing while lying scrunched up on my back and I still hadn't finished the job. The problem is replacing the up stop for the accelerator pedal which is right up in the footwell and an absolute bar steward to get at. Eventually I concluded that it is almost physically impossible with the recommended 15mm M8 bolt and went for a beer instead - it really needs a bolt a fair bit shorter. Will have another attempt tonight

Mark
