Is it the pedal itself broken or the plastic pivot block for it that is "notorious" for breaking? No gratuitous use of my user name intended. :laughing:

Mission complete

i feel kind of dumb now but i did get that new pedal assy in. the trick that i failed to realize the first time is to unhook the throttle cable from the TB. by doing so there is no tension on the cable and gives you the needed room to play with. the clip just pushes straight up and the pedal comes off. took about five min after i figued out what i was doing.
