Default Clutch pedal leaning left—what parts should I replace?

This is my list of parts:
OE clutch pedal (35311158659)
Pedal assembly locking pin (35311158661)
Tension spring (35211158489)
Clutch pedal return spring (21522227764)
Garagistic bronze clutch pedal bushings

Is there anything else that needs to be replaced? Looking at RealOEM, it appears that the pedal assembly locking pin was replaced by a two-piece part (10 to 2x 14)? Should I get two of part 14s instead?
Any reason why I shouldn't give Garagistic my money? Their product and shipping prices seem fair.

Just the pedal and the bushings. Skip the other parts you selected, they don’t wear.

And you might get by only replacing the bushings.

The pedal is old and made of plastic. I might as well replace it since it’s cheap. My E46 pedal has a slight lean, and it’s has fairly new delrin bushings btw.

I did the metal aftermarket clutch pedal, with new bushings, and new clutch master cyl. GL. A proper working clutch pedal/and shifter MAKE this car.

Mason? I'm selling the car soon, so I don't need/want to put fancy, expensive parts on it.

I replaced the pedal and bushings, and it’s much better now but there’s still a slight lean. I don’t know what these cars were like new...is this normal?





I can actually use the clutch stop now, and there are no issues with operation. When depressed, it goes straight down now, instead of going to the left so that’s good. Just wondering if I did something wrong or if there might be a damaged part that needs to be replaced.

Any noise when depressing it? If it functions properly...

This noise is generally eliminated once you swap the M3 compression spring
assembly out for the normal tension spring.

The geometry and mechanics of the M3 clutch spring setup are poor because they don't act in "plane" of the pedal arm. They are offset to one side, eventually causing the clutch lean and squeak. You do gain a bit of clutch pedal force with the tension spring though.
