Working on anything under the dash can be a pain. Removing the dash completely is usually more work than it’s worth, so most are forced to succumb to laying on their back and fishing tools up through the jungle of brackets, wiring, and duct-work. Between a slight lack of visibility and a complete lack of physical working space, frustration is easy to come by.
Being the stick shift experts, Silver Sport Transmissions (SST) has had more than their fair share of experience when it comes to under dash undertakings.
SST’s own William Lane has replaced an automatic brake pedal or two in his day and is well aware of the struggle that can slip into wrench-throwing territory. That’s probably why he went as far as making a super helpful video on how to go about an automatic to manual pedal conversion.
Fortunately, SST’s conversion kit (P/N MAM-01501) makes the swap as painless as possible as it includes a brake pedal, clutch pedal, kingpin, housing, pedal pads, hardware and installation instructions.
Most of the pedal structure stays in place and, with a bit of a plan, the assembly is very doable. He didn’t even have to take the fresh air vent completely out. Definitely give the video a watch before getting into it because just thirteen minutes of William’s helpful hints could equate to several hours saved in the shop.
