I'm sure the TIS has instructions, but I couldn't find it with a cursory look. Check: https://www.newtis.info/tisv2/a/en/f...ism+trim+panel

Good luck!

I believe you are referencing the plastic trim below the steering column, not the "dead" pedal or footrest. That is held from behind the carpet as I understand. I simply used a Chinese copy that glues (with 3M tape) over the black footrest.

The black plastic footrest is glued down and clipped from the factory. It's pretty permanent.

When I replaced mine to an m sport footrest I had to yank the original off and epoxy the new one on.

Was it not flush to just put the m sport footrest over top? Or just preferred to do a full replacement?

The m sport footrest comes as a complete part and can't be stuck over top of the old one. They're different designs as well.

Only the Chinese replicas can be put on top of the existing footrest. However it only adds about 5mm height so for me it was a good compromise.

Gotcha. I had ordered a set of reps off amazon and my understanding was that they're stick on. I guess KC328's are OEM.

I'm referring to the footrest, are you talking about pedals?

Rep pedals are slip on.

Yes, I was referring to the footrest/dead pedal. The OEM is a complete replacement and rather difficult. The Chinese copies are glued on top. See this:

What kind of epoxy did you use? I yanked mine out and ripped the plastic rivets out of the back, but then realized my new pedal haus dead pedal needed to stick on the OEM dead pedal
