Is there anyway to move the pedal box assembly in a 2012 left hand drive forward ? My legs are a little long and I can't seem to find a way to straighten them out and keeping my foot off the clutch.

No. If it is the 2012 configuration then it won't go.

It is asymmetric and works quite well on right handed drive so it will float quite easily in Britain.

Sad. One easy solution is to get a spacer for the steering wheel that extends the length of it about an inch or more. That helps tremendously.


What's your mileage? Who cares. Is it practical? See #1. What happens when it rains? You get wet.

I improved leg space by elevating the front end of the lower seat cushion.
For testing purpose you may put a piece of wood under the front end and check if that fits your needs.

My pedels are moved more backwards because of my long legs but they had to install New attachments for the hydrolic pipes.

raising the seat (or adding a cushion) has the effect of moving you further back. I added a cushion because I am vertically challenged and as a result had to move my pedals as well or I could not reach them

Hi!!

I am new to this forum so a bit of a newbie when it comes to how everything here works....but I will give it a try!

I guess that your pedal box is already placed in the forward position? I am 192 cm and there was no way I could drive the car as standard even with the pedals in the forward position. First I opted for a smaller steering wheel and then I also rebuilt the pedal box. As standard the pedals are actually angled towards you and I found by adjusting them forward as much as possible you could get another 5-6 cm of legroom. I also made the pedal surface smaller so that they do not get in contact with the wall. The throttle was a bit more work as I had to fabricate a new linkage to get it in line with the clutch and brake pedal. I did this when I bought my car (used) in 2015 and everything has been working great. I had some pictures of the whole rebuild process but of course that was on my previous crashed Iphone...But I can post a picture of how the pedals look now?

It is a pretty steep learning curve. Saving the photos to your desktop or another folder (NOT IN THE PHOTO PROGRAM) and make sure when you save them they are not a large file size. THEN, transfer them to TM Images photo service. Once in there you can go to the bottom of each photo where the codes are located and find the BBcode and copy it. Then paste it into the Post you are using. About as simple as a blind man trying to ride a motorcycle.

as said by Saint Augustine, it is a "termendum mysterium"
