Default Retro-fitting Dead Pedal for '03 GT?

Hey gang,

Seeing as we owners of an '03 GT were screwed out of the '04's kick-butt interior - including a dead pedal - is it possible to fit a dead pedal from any year Cruiser into an '03 GT?

I've read posts from different other vehicle forums, and it seems like dead pedals are attached by a long bolt.

Can anyone with a dead pedal confirm how it's mounted and/or if it appears that one could retro-fit one on?

Realize it would probably involve some serious drilling, but I'm willing to try it if I know it might work.

Thanks in advance!

You can get a nice-looking "deal pedal" from: http://www.autovation.net/groupbuy/PT_Cruiser/body.html

PT Cruiser® Dead Pedal Only - $35 Shipped!

It is very easy to install--no "long bolts" or "serious drilling"--just two small self-tapping screws. [8D]

It will look great in your car--mine did! [8]

Now you see...I've noticed all those ads for dead pedals, but I thought they were just replacements for what was already there, using the factory mounts, if you will.

But all you need to do is screw the suckers on? I've felt the area where the dead pedal goes & it felt like foam underneath. Does screwing it directly into this material give it adequate strength?

And thanks for the clarification of the mounts!!

on mine it is a plastic frame and hollow underneath.
the foam you are feeling is probably the carpet padding. there is no need to pre-drill pilot holes for the dead pedal, just line it up and drive in the screws.

Far out!!

Y'all have been a great help!!

Hey, I noticed you opted for the brushed pedals instead of the polished (wise choice from the pics on their site, anyway) Does the matte finish tend to attract dirt & shoe grime? That finish looks like one of those that could be a real pain to keep clean...


BTW, again...I LOVE that setup!![:X] Thanks for the pic!

no it doesnt attract the dirt any more than stock.
the clutch pedal is seeing some wear and polishing itself. only annoying thing is when you have sand on your feet it scratches the pedals, another reason for the matte finish.

Yes, it's that simple. And definitely, [u]do not drill pilot holes</u> or it will "mess things up". Good luck. [8]
