    Yeah I've replaced it once before on my e28. It really isn't that bad a job, might take you an afternoon. The best part of the job was finding out that the new pedal box from the dealer's cost me less than $70 new; couln't believe it. The worst part about it was having to lie on my back in the driver's foot-well with a flashlight in one hand and wrench in the other. You might do yourself a favor if you took out the driver's seat.

    Good Luck

    It's a chore

    I've done it on two E28s, both manuals. Apparently stress from clutching.

    Nothing particularly difficult other than the working position.

    Last new one I installed looked the one removed, IIRC. Don't remember any obvious reinforcements.

    Pedal box R&R

    Anyone replaced their pedal box lately. Mine is halfway cracked above the clutch master right now. I've got a new one on it's way from Steve Haygood. Has anyone reinforced them before installation, anyone know if "new" ones are reinforced. Any advice would be appreciated.
