2011 VR6 FSI LUX
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.I have a Rennline dead pedal as well. Not at all. Rock solid. I'd highly recommend it.
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.
