Bushing rotate with the pedal movement and not stay stationary inside, they can not stop pedal to come back as the pedal will move on the lever inside. Am I missing something here ?

Edit: or you mean sand inside of the bushing ? Mine move easily after I test fitted them.

In my experience the delrin bushing would bind and the brake pedal, specifically, would stick as it has a small spring for tension. The clutch pedal delrin bushing required no sanding the I.D. Since its spring is larger.

I completed the install yesterday but I have to say not fun for a 6.3" guy.

Brake pedal bushing fits fine and were easy to install once you know the orientation how to insert the pedal over the lever (I inserted the first busing on the lever, then the brake pedal and then finally the other bushing and was easy). Clip pin went in and everything was smooth till I try to install the clip on Clutch pedal. I was not able to put the clip on clutch pedal as bushings were little too thick. So, I had to sand them and test fit them several times till I was able to install the clip.

Now, I have no play in the pedals. Next are shifter support bushing, transmission mounts and new short shifter from E60.

Not that it matters anymore since the bushings are in. But there are three 13mm nuts you could have removed plus removing clips. The clutch and brake pedal assembly comes out of the car and makes installing bushings a breeze. Brake delrin bushing didn't cause any trouble upon install? Interesting...

Yeah I did remove the nuts from the clutch master cylinder . I had clutch and brake pedals out of the car, cleaned them and install bushing. Problem was that on brake side it won't go in and I had to install the bushing first, then push pedal over the first bushing and then the final bushing. Clip I install before installing clutch pedal so was easy from that side. This made it super easy, removing the brake pedal was a pain tho.

On Clutch side the bushing edges were little too thick and the clip won't snap on it. Had to remove the bushing sand it to fit the clip.

DIY I used for future references. HERE

I injection mold many Acetal spring bushings. (Acetal is generic name, Delrin is brand name) Acetal is usually the material of choice for these type of bushings because of its natural "slipperiness" .
I doubt that many of the bushings I mold ever are greased. Acetal is also pretty inert so greasing it shouldn't hurt if you want. Acetal is also available with PTFE loadings although it makes it very expensive and thus only used for very specific items.
