Yarding fun this weekend, I grabbed three accelerator pedals and two brake pedal pads.  The pedals were from Buicks and Oldsmobiles, but their brake pedal pads were bad, so I grabbed Cadillac brake pads, which don't show the wear, and fit just fine, but look a bit older/more ornate.   See pic below, the brake pads are above the accelerator pads.

I will OF COURSE clean these all up, and all have been claimed already, but glad to nab these when I see them if others want to do this mod.   SUPER simple, the accelerator is held in with three 10mm bolts, and the brake pad just prys off.

Will be bringing these on my New England trip in two weeks.  Will be fun to pack these.  I'll check the bag I put them in at the airport, but I bet the bag will get searched if they scan it!  Ha!

Oh here is a not-great pic of what these look like in my '96.  I have the Buick/Olds brake pad on mine...again could not find any non-worn ones this past weekend.   The gas pedal in my car is the same style as the middle one in the pic above.

The gas pedal is held to the arm by a push nut. If you pry it off, the pedal will slide off of the arm. The spring goes around the arm to keep the pedal from flopping around. You do not have to mess with the 3 screws, or the cable attachment. If you are careful, you can reuse the push nut.

I have the same brake pedal in my 91 as you have in your RM

I just unbolt the three 10mm bolts and pop off the actual throttle cable. Can remove in about 2-mins, and install just as fast. Wink

There is a bolt that holds a connector to the ones on the 91-93 cars.
