1. Removing factory gas pedal.
With your drivers door open, sit on the floor and take a nice look at the whole arrangement. Now, reach under the gas pedal and you will feel the pin holding the pedal in place. Using your finger, try to push the end of the pin inward from the right side of the pedal. This should give a little gap at the head of the pin (on the left side of the pedal) for you to insert your flat head screw driver and pry the pin out. Now you can simply lift the pedal out.

2. Take note at how the pin and spring is installed.
Looking from behind, you can see how the pin and spring latch in place.

3. Install new pedal.
Place the OEM spring in back of the new pedal and hold the top of the spring with your finger. Put it in place over the gas pedal stalk and insert the pin from the left side. Check to make sure the pin is all the way in and secure. Press on the new gas pedal a few times to make sure the spring is working as it should and there's no obstruction. You are done!

4. Remove factory dead pedal and mount new dead pedal.
Using a 10mm deed socket, remove the two 10mm nuts holding the factory plastic dead pedal in place. Once removed, you can lay the new dead pedal on top of the plastic dead pedal and mark the holes for drilling. Drill out all four holes using a 1/8" drill bit. Now using the supplied screws, screw the pedal in place using a 2.5mm hex key.

5. Reinstall dead pedal.
Once done mounting the new dead pedal on top of the plastic dead pedal, simply replace the whole assembly with the 10mm nuts. Now you can sit back and enjoy your new matching pedals.
