Clutch Pedal Bushings on eBay? Good/Bad?

Happy New Year Everyone!!!

For my '00 Z3M Roadster - I need to replace my clutch pedal bushings. I saw some self-oiling bronze ones listed on eBay. Is this what Z owners are buying? Or should I get something else?

Also, are there other clutch pedal parts I need to pickup in addition too?

Thanks,

TC

Bimmerbum has them cheaper.
As far as other parts, it depends on how deep you want to go. It's a perfect time to replace the clutch pedal with a steel one from Mason Engineering, but that's expensive. It's also a good time to replace the clutch master cylinder, since you have the pedal out anyway. Might as well replace the slave cylinder as well, since it's just as old. They're connected by a hose, so might as well delete the Clutch Delay Valve (CDV) and install a stainless steel clutch line. Then, you probably have the seat out, so there are several things to do to those...

The eBay vendor is BimmerBum. You can get the bronze bushings directly from BimmerBum for $5 less:

I got the $20 plastic bushings from UUC. They sold white Delrin for years, and that is what was pictured on their site, but what they sent was black and I don't know what they are made of. Then their site showed no bushings, and now the white ones are back:

The UUC black bushings looked so flimsy that I got the BimmerBum bronze bushings, which look sturdy. Now I think I will ask UUC if I can exchange the black ones for the white ones. As to which is best, white Delrin or bronze, I don't know.

If you are contemplating installing clutch bushings, wait until you can do a round robin with the seats out. Take out driver seat, do seat bushings and clutch pedal bushings, then take out passenger seat, do its bushings and the glove box fix. That's what I plan to do this spring.

Thanks Blacklane and Vinatage42!

I appreciate the quick reply and additional information. I need to map out what I plan to tackle here. I see your point with addressing a few of these elements "while I'm at it"...

I may hit you up again, once I'm ready to place an order.

Mahalo,

TC
