Can the dead pedal be removed from the 500? It feels like it may be part of the body.

I just bought a 2012 Pop yesterday. Even at 6'2" this car is somehow a perfect fit, except that the dead pedal is too close and steep. But that's how it is for me on any car (BMW has the worst).

pretty sure its a removable piece of plastic under there, some other members have done it without much of a hassle

That's all it is^^^^^^ Lift up the carpet and pull it out.

Thanks.

Just untuck some carpet and unscrew the pedal? No refastening of anything?

From what I saw there are no screws. You can do a search for the thread, but it will probably be quicker just to pull back the carpet and go for it.

Yep, that was pretty easy, no screws or tabs at all.

However there is no gain to be had; the pedal itself is not much of a pedal, just a flat plastic cover over a protrusion in the floor pan. Can't really make more space.
