No dead pedal for X-mas
 
My brother likes to give me things for my Subie for X-mas. This year he tried to give me a dead pedal. He said he looked all over the internet and couldn't find one. Mach V Motorsports(fastwrx.com)had it posted like they had it for sale and took his order but after they gave him the runaround for 2 weeks. He called them to find out what the deal was and they told him they didn't have any, don't know if they make them anymore,and won't be getting them any time soon. He also said they were rude to him on the phone! Of course he canceled his order.

I decided to look for one myself. I think I found it for sale at IAG Performance. [url=http://iagperformance.com/shopping_cart/proddetail.php?prod=DP-Plate3]IAG Performance: Aluminum Dead Pedal for 02-08 Subaru WRX, STI & 04-08 Forester XT, Accessories, DP-Plate3[/url]

Is this true? or is this more B.S. and I shouldn't waste my time. Does anyone sell this part anymore?

BTW, I got a nice new suction cup for my radar detector and a Belkin Xm Auto Cassette Adapter so I can play my MP-3s in my car. Thanks bro.

That looks like the one Man Show (John) got. I know that they are out there. Maybe he will chime in and let you know if thats the same one. Good luck man.

sure does, It was just in discussion a week or so ago.

I have one too, but no "factory plugs" or whatever that refers to. John said he just glued it to the carpet. There's something under there they expect you to attach it to that has a grey-looking screw or something but I talked to the dealer about it and it was like I was speaking greek. So much work. Mine's still sitting in my center armrest compartment where it has been for 3 years now.

The one I have is different than the one in your IAG link (I think it matches the stock pedals better). I did just glue mine directly to the carpet using Shoe Goo after I removed the stock plastic dead pedal. I bought mine back in early 2007 from KastlesKorner.com, and it looks like it's still being sold here: [url=http://store.scoobymods.com/subaru-dead-pedal-p-406.html]Subaru Dead Pedal Scoobymods.com[/url]

There are two dark gray plastic pop rivets that just pull straight out if you pry them gently with a screwdriver or something similar. You would actually reuse them when you install the aftermarket dead pedal shown in the IAG link. It's really pretty easy ;)

Thanks guys. I'll try and order one from IAG in a few weeks and let you know what happens.

Ming has em here :

But it shows sold out...

Man Show, my carpet looks like the one in the MIDDLE picture there. It has no dead pedal. And for the life of me I could not get a hold of the two plastic pieces that attach the dead pedal to the floorboard. Stupid dealerships...

pzr2874 12-28-2011 11:29 AM

John, what's the part # on those?

Or Mosc could go to the dealer and have a "look around" in a few cars... lol

When I get back to my house from Christmas vacation. I will see if I can find the part number or the website where I got those pieces. I ordered some for when I installed my front lip. Might be able to help you out some.

mosc 12-28-2011 07:05 PM

that would be awesome

man show 12-29-2011 09:40 AM

Aw man, I would have shipped you mine, but I left them in the holes (as shown in pic #3) to keep the carpet from slipping down and now they're sandwiched in Shoe Goo. Good luck on your part hunt!

Fidrat 01-21-2012 03:56 AM

Ok, I just ordered it. Let's see if this is for real or b.s. Or if I'm better than my brother at looking for things on the internet. Or if Mach V Motorsports(fastwrx.com) sux and IAG Performance rules.

Fidrat 01-27-2012 01:55 AM

Well,IAG Performance rules,they are for real,my brother sux at looking for things on the internet and I have a nice new dead pedal.
