Default Re: Clutch pedal and bushing replacement

I replaced my bushings a couple months ago but kept the original pedal as it really didn't look warped once it was out of the car. After reinstall it still sat to the left a good bit. I did a little research and found out this is basically a side effect of the center over spring. Using the Z3 spring instead increased pedal effort, but got my 20 year old pedal lined up almost perfectly straight and moving straight in and out with no side to side slop.

Kinda funny this has come up so much lately, posted about this about a month ago on here and a few days ago on BF.C

Default Re: Clutch pedal and bushing replacement

Delrin bushings and mason pedal going on 3yrs, i like it HOWEVER it (with grip tape -no rubber cover) sits less than 1/2" away from the brake pedal (with rubber cover), which means big shoes can be problematic. In saying that ive installed new plastic pedals (redesigned/superceded?) in a few cars and they are similarly close, it may be as they were new but seems odd they are so close

Still need to do this on the 328i, which is really listing left.

Already have some aftermarket bushings, don't recall the material. Could be delrin or teflon.

Interesting bit about the Z3 spring. Might look into that.

Would you happen to have the part # for this off the top of your memory?

My pedal isnt as stiff as I'd like it to be, and its brand new, bled a few times..


#6 or the pair of #11's?

Robert Kubica stopped, looked the journo right in the eye and said: "I've seen it twice: the first time I was there!"

Actually it's neither. By using this spring, you eliminate the center over spring entirely. Check this screenshot, has all the info you should need.
