    Hi,

    This is a guide to fitting Golf MkV GTI pedals to your Mk2 Leon. This guide details the DSG pedals, however the procedure is the same for you Old Skool drivers still languishing with a manual gearbox.

    Also worth noting is that I took these pictures as I was removing my GTI pedals from my Leon prior to trading it in for a lovely Audi.

    1. Tools you will need:
    Torx T25, small blade screwdriver. Not shown: spit.

    2. Remove the drivers floor mat.
    Top Tip! Put the mat on the ground outside the drivers door and kneel on it to prevent muck getting on to your Chino's. If you're Rick Astley...

    3. Prise this cover off using the screwdriver.

    4. Undo this screw with the T25 Torx driver.

    5. The trickiest bit... Releasing the two clips securing the heel part of the pedal to the car.

    The clips are released by inserting a screwdriver in to these two slots. The right hand clip needs pushing towards the front of the car. The left hand clip needs bending to the right. Take a look at the following pictures to see what you will be pushing, or alternatively look at the new pedal you will be installing.
    This is the left hand clip that needs bending to the right.
    From the side you can see the right hand clip and how it needs pushing to the front of the car to release.
    These are the pegs these clips are connected to.

    6. Remove the plug from the top of the pedal.

    Just pull the red tab up fully then you should be able to unplug it. Don't pull on the wires! Thats it! The loud pedal has been removed. To fit the new one, plug the wires in the top, push the clips over the pegs at the bottom of the pedal, secure the top with the Torx screw then replace the cap.

    7. Other pedal(s)


    These have rubber plugs that pull through holes in the pedal. Lubricate with some spit if you are a bachelor or some hairspray if you are married. Or Rick Astley.

    Then hook the bottom of the pedal cover over the bottom of the pedal and push. Ensure the plugs are fully pushed through.

    Thats it. Check pedals work. Grin. Open beer.

    Excellent post! That makes even me confident that I can put new pedals on an FR (when it eventually turns up).

    Oh, just thought on - I never tried starting my car with the pedal removed... So don't you, either.

    Flakmunky - Instructions worked a treat for fitting mine. The only difference was that I needed a Torx T27 rather than a T25.

    It was a bitch to undo the left-hand clip on the heal plate (the tab snapped in the end) but not an issue as the GTi pedal clipped in easily:

    Maybe I used the wrong size?! Glad it helped... A lot of people seem to snap the clip - I managed to snap it on my original pedal but not the GTI one when I took it back out. I remember on the uk-mkvs.net forums a couple of people actually swapped the ally pedal over because the tab had snapped...

    Gizzer, where did you get the pedals and do you have part numbers and prices for them?

    Cheers in advance

    Is this really as easy as it looks? I am someone who gets easily frustrated but would like to give this a go.

    Also I have the DSG so are they different pedals I need to buy? The picture on the VAG parts website shows the 3 pedals. Do you buy that pack but just discard the clutch pedal?

    Yes they are different. The DSG hs a bigger brake pedal and the accelerator has a kickdown button, although why it does I don't know... The DSG kicks down long before you reach the kick down button... Try flooring your pedal (with the engine off) and then push a bit harder you should feel a click.

    Cheers Flakmunky. I think that I have found them on VAG parts. You buy them seperately and the Brake pedal is marked as being DSG and on the accelerator you can select automatic.

    So is this definitely an easy job?
