How did they turn out? I'm looking to get pedal covers to roughly match the Rennline dead pedal and these seem like they are a good option...Mr. Fincher,
Thank you for the information! I was reminded to call ECS Tuning to verify that the pedal covers they sell will fit my 2013 and they claim that they will. I was told they would provide a refund if they do not fit. https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine...brushed-stainless-pedal-cap-brake/3d1723173a/
The pedal covers sold on the parts.vw.com fit up to a 2010.
Agreed with you completely on the Rennline dead pedal... plus it took all of 5 seconds to install.Dachshund.Power, my Rennline dead pedal is perfect and installed in a matter of minutes. I know it was a worthwhile, practical investment. My wide feet were beginning to wear out the unprotected carpet. My pedal covers have not been installed yet. I have heard so many stories of them either needing minor adjustments (mounting holes for the brake cover) or just plain aggravating to try to get installed. So I am planning on having the dealership install them for me when I go in for my 40K service. I bought mine from ECS Tuning and they look great and I am eager to see them on my pedals. I hope you post photos of yours when you get them installed.
Here's the back of the pedal that comes on the car... it's a little different, but only on the sides. The part that locks in is identical.Thank you for posting the information, Dachshund.Power! I am glad you got it installed. I feel better about attempting to install them myself now.
Sorry for the delayed reply here.I just received the Rennline dead pedal for my Treg. When installing it I slipped it under the foot-well cover at a 45° angle then had to push down with decent force to get the foam tape to touch/adhere to the original footrest pad. In touching the new dead pedal after installation I noticed it seemed to want to slowly "spring" back up. I kept downward pressure on it for a minute or two and it seemed to stay.
Fast forward 1/2hr later when I went back out to the vehicle...and whoa...the Rennline pedal was sitting up at an angle. The foam tape failed to adhere. Now it won't adhere at all. I thoroughly cleaned the original footrest pad with IPA and dried it prior to install. It seems the problem is from having to slip/pry it under the foot-well cover. Thee gap from carpet to foot-well cover is thinner than the Rennline dead pedal metal and it naturally wants to sit at an angle. If the tape doesn't adhere well....it's shot.
I like the quality and the idea of the Rennline dead pedal cover but I'm not understanding how no one else has had this problem. Is there a better way to install this? Do I need to trim the very bottom of the foot-well cover a little so it doesn't want to naturally pop the Rennline up again? Can it be screwed down? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
