For reassembly, don't mess with zip ties. Follow Nick's advice to disconnect the m/c plunger from the pedal in his video and it'll be a lot easier:

Haus, thank you for sharing...yes, I got the old style...also, I now realize what Nick is talking about not needing to use zip ties. However, I found this thread on another forum and I'll paste here since the subject is about BMW cars, I hope the Mods don't mind...( since I bought the car, I have never liked the clutch feel. So, I have ordered extension spring part number is 35 21 1 158 489 and the two grommets at my local dealer ($13 and change). I wondered whether anyone here tried definitely sounds cool. This way, I don't have to mess with spring assembly as it will be deleted.
