Replacement clutch pedals are about $30. If you pull the old be sure to replace the pedal with a new one.

Agreed. I bought a new one anyway so I’m just going to replace it.

It does suck. Getting the master cylinder out was a pain. I should have taken out the seat.

Replaced clutch master cylinder and slave and pedal bushings. Flushed transmission and differential fluid (used royal purple) and oil and filter change. Replaced throttle cable and pedal bushing where throttle cable attaches. Flushed brake fluid. Used Porsche Dot4 because I have it laying around for my other track car. Replaced throttle spring bushings and bought her a new pair of shoes (Bmw style 68 wheels with Michelins). I know the look is subjective but I like the look.

A 1998 M3 still came with that horrific steering wheel!

Did my clutch pedal replacement and delrin bushes a while again. Wasn’t that hard. But it solved nothing as the off center spring still pushes the pedal to the left.

I bought a steering wheel from a ‘99 M3. My clutch pedal is also off center after replacing the bushings. Anyone have any suggestions?

No idea. I have my clutch/brake pedal assemble disassembled on my workbench. I could not guess how new bushings would cause it to be "offset". Maybe define "offset" or even post a picture.

What was the rationale for the paint job??? I am debating what to do with my paint right now. I have a few dings and some rock chips. I prefer to not respray the entire car. And I am nervous about paint matching 1/2 panels. Thinking about wrapping to avoid all that.

It's the clutch pedal return spring. It's mounted on the right side (i.e. off center), which pushes the pedal to the left.
