I have successfully removed the pedal box to replace the front carpet. Since I have it out, beside cleaning should I be lubing the pedal shaft bushings? If so how do I get the pedals off the shaft. There appears to be a pin comprised of an inner and outer pieces. Does it simply just get knocked out? And is install knocking it back in, or is it a one time use pin?  Thanks, Shashi

I recently installed the Effort Reduction Kit and used punches to knock both of the pins out--inner pin first, of course. I used a vise to press them back in during assembly.

I am curious, what type of pins were they  (I guess the outer is a slotted spring and the inner is a solid)?

Thanks. Yes that is the pin. I will knock them out with a punch. When I get around to it will take some pics.

Both are slotted spring...

I've seen them quite a bit.  Just not the use of a spring pin inside a spring pin, but apperantly a common application for heavy load applications.

as long as not damaged and still has "Spring" fit, re using should not be a problem

should not be a problem to get replacements though
