M Sport Pedals

Installed today anybody removed the gas pedal to get access to the back of the pedal? Need to put onerous screw in which I can't access from behind.

No, but I would like to see pics of the pedals once you are done.

I put on similar pedals, but I undersized the holes I drilled so that all screws would mount whether or not I was able to attach a nut.

Yeah that is what figured I would have to do but it was too late for me. Ugh. I going to see if I can find a long one from the seller and then I'm good. Unless others have any ideas. Love them and they look great.

Removing the pedal couldn't be easier. There is a cap on the base of the pedal assembly in the front. Take it off with a pick or very small screwdriver. There is a hex nut underneath. Remove. Lift up, and unhook the pedal assembly from the back. Unplug from connector. Put in pocket and walk inside.

Put it that way...good theft deterrent measure!

eBay do search for the following. USA 2010+ BMW F10/F11 5 Series AT Alumnium+Dead M-Engraved Pedals
Or speedstersource.com. Great deal.

I tried the search and could not find them. Do you mind if I asked what you paid? I was just about to order some from BMW Pedals.

Tried Removing the pedal but had trouble unplugging the pedal to get access to the pedal assembly. So I was able get to the pedal better by being able to move it around and ended up using crazy glue for two of the right side screws and all is good.

Took me a good 10 minutes to get the connector off. I hate electrical connectors. They're so annoying.

Correct and with my luck I would have pulled too hard on something and would have cost me hundreds in the long run. Oh and wify would have killed me.

i was able to install mine without removing the scrwe at the bottom of the pedal. very tight area to work in, but you should be able to get the screws in without unbolting the pedal.
