That brake pedal cover is the hardest g0d d@mn mod I have installed yet! I am still remembering how pi$$ed I was that day!

Take these guys advise, spray it with something slippery...I followed the stupid @$$ instructions!

I agree the brake pedal was a pain. Take off the stock brake pedal pad. I then took the new brake pedal pad, flipped it over and at the corners I sliced them open some at each corner. I found it was much easier to put on then and there has been NO movement of the pedal at all. It is super snug.

Just throwing this out there. I did'nt care for the look of the Mopar pedals and went a different route. I used a set of aluminim pedals with real carbon fiber inserts I got from Pilot. The brake pedal goes on easy and the accelerator pedal goes on ok too, but you have to play around with it to get it just right. These are the first thing most people comment on when they look inside the car and everyone has liked them. Even the dealer wanted to know where I got them. The accelerator pedal only covers 2/3 of the factory one but nobody notices it. I have driven 4000mi with them on and have had no problems with them slipping, sticking, or falling off. You could drill into the factory pedals for a more secure fit but I chose to use the supplied hardware instead. The cost is about 1/3 of the Mopar pedals too...

Corsa (Sport) cat-back exhaust
K&N typhoon polished CAI
36% tint
S&W shift knob
Wheel locks

And has any found a parking brake pedal cover to match the Mopar gas and brake set ??

Not to hijack the thread, as it seems your question was answered, but I thought this would be the best place to ask.

I placed my brake pedal cover in the direct sunlight while I was doing yard work, and by the time I was done, it was good an hot all the way through, and very soft. I used my hands to work it on, but some one recommended using one of those paint can openers you get at Home Depot and Lowe's when you buy paint. He said it worked great.

Happy Motoring,

I followed rw99s method. 1 minute in boiling water, no hurry, and installed in about 30 secs for the brake pad.

I applied some softsoap to the break pedal and worked it on. Not too bad, although I did cut my finger on a sharp edge of the metal on the new break pedal. First Blood.

I wish this thread was posted sooner. What a PITA the brake pedal was for me. I just tried the instructions with the soapy water and it took a long time to do it and man, was I pissed. The gas pedal was on in under a minute. Someone else asked about a similar cover for the parking brake. I'd be interested in that as well if anyone locates a vendor. I also have the T-Shift handle, which was installed by the dealer on day 1.
