if you mean the white clip that stops the brake pedal from coming off, youre best bet is to buy a new one and just break it off and replace...

With the white clip thats on the underside of the brake pedal, should i just get a flathead and pry it off? I'm also having problems with pulling out the brake and clutch pivot pin, when i pull it to the left it wont pull out completely as it hits what i think is the heater controls case, and to the right it will hit the fusebox.:doh:

NOTE I have not removed my steering column at all.

Please help.... Are we alllowed to give out contact details on here? I dont want to post them up and get banned or anything.

All ideas or solutions will be great....It seems like im getting so close......:cry: No time to give up now.

Im being such a child, why is this white clip being so stubborn, i cant even break all of it properly. Im losing hope now but im so close, as i can wriggle the pedal box but i can see that its going to get stopped by the brake pedal.

Any technique to breaking it...ive tried prying it with flatheads and all sorts but no luck, when looking into it with a mirror i can see its only one little lip that's holding it now...

When i do finally get it off? do i have to undo the steering column at all? at the little connector bit?

I'm being charge £74.92 for the bracket and the brake clip £3.98

I'm sorry, but surely the VW polo bracket is identical? Yet i have been told it is around only £35 for a reinforced bracket.

Can someone please tell me if this is true...because I don't want to spend the money at Seat, when I can get the exact same part if not better for half the price?

Please get back to me if anyone has a vw part number or a simple yes no if the vw polo or golf pedal box will fit.

:cry: The stress from this beeza.

part number will be on the pedal box you take out somewhere so just get the same part... polos 'may' have the same pedal box, but shouldnt vary in price if theyre the same, you can always order the seat part from VW either way...
i just got a working second hand unit and reinforced it myself with some extra braces and a cheeky bolt...
Clip seems to be normally priced though

I could do with a second hand one. Even the lady said that it will be the original which basically means it will break again and even when i said vw do a reinforced part she denied the car being similar to a vw.

Best place to look for a second hand one?

looks like im going to be forking out :-[

many thanks for this YOU saved me a large amount of money with your easy to follow guide.
When you come to the piece of putting the accelerator cable to the pedal, try an adjustable spanner over the wire and lever down against the top of the pedal box.
This worked fine for me.

Hey guys, ive only just got a chance to finish off the pedal box. Ive bolted everything up but now cant get the steering column back into that joint. And its the only thing thats left to do. Note[ i didnt remove shear bolts.

you need to slot in at the bottom to the column first then bolt it up but as you haven't removed the shear bolts that would mean dropping the whole cage again

how far you into it ? maybe best to try loosening it off for some slack rather than taking the shear bolts on ?
either that or taking the shearbolts out (pin into it then anti-clockwise) and replace em with standard bolts

pretty sure splined shaft on steering column is spring loaded?
should push upwards enough to slip in or does the joining piece slide down into floor?

Hi guys ive done it now....

Future note if you dont want to remove the shear bolts, i undid the 2 bolts that hold the metal bracket and sleeve over the metal piece coming out of the floor and also the one nut and bolt of the twisty thingy ;)and it all popped out.

best thing to do buddy will be removing the metal bar partially.
Then offer the brake pedal up with the clip to its holding point, then force into position.

When you see that the spring is definately in place. Then push the metal rod in fully.

Hope that helps.
