Z4 M Pedal Install Instructions

Anyone point me to a DIY You-Tube or direction sheet? Just picked up the pedals today, and the gas pedal was not what I was expecting. It's got a big box attached to it that needs to plug into something!

Regards

No! That would have been too easy and I would have immediately found your post on how to do it.

Thanks!

Project for tomorrow morning! Yeppie!

Ron

However I do have one question, in the instruction I did not see disconnect battery, but at the end it stated reconnect battery. It also mentioned coding. Why coding if its a simple plug and play up grade?

Regards

Never mind about the battery part. That part is going to be the hassel, it will take more time to get the battery cover off than to do the mod.

Got it all done. Is there a length of time the battery can be un-hooked that can cause any issues to the car?

Nope- I did the pedals without D/C'ing the battery with no issues. You may have to reset the clock or reinitialize the auto up windows. The pedals are cool huh? Should have been standard on the M IMO. My S2000 had cooler pedals...

Doc, the clock was no problem, the auto up windows, how do I get that back? Everything else works fine.

Thanks

Also in the FAQ

I will tell you I did NOT hook up a battery charger. The process worked fine without it. I had to use it when I changed my battery last month.

I fired up the car and did it while running. Worked great!

Thanks Doc, Thanks Ron!
