Adjustable pedal replace quicker

You can save major time with this trick:
Pull just the pedal pivot bolt. All it takes is a 13mm wrench, and a 10mm socket. The pedal can be slid right out. The spring around the pedal shaft is not hard to deal with. I was able to hook it first, then push the pedal shaft into position for the bolt.


You will skip:
pulling the base from the firewall
fighting the rod of the brake booster
unhooking plastic clips on the base.
pulling the brake light switch
fighting to get the entire assembly in and out .
3-4 hours doing the above.

Is there a write up somewhere on how to do this whole repair? I'm unsure on how to remove the electrical box that is attached to the gas pedal.

Alright, I figured my problem out. I was confused because I ordered the wrong replacement part. I was trying to figure out why it looked different until i disassembled the pedal in my commander and realized it was a completely different unit. Sorry for the confusion, thanks for trying to help guys.
