Clutch pedal extender 2011 mustang GT

I have a 2011 Mustang GT with 6 speed manual transmission.
I have been reading about this "great" clutch pedal extender that I could also use.
I have the rubber/metal clutch pad. Is there an easier way to remove this pad before installing the extender, then reinstalling the pad on the extender from what I have seen so far . I have read people having all kinds of difficulty removing and reinstalling this pad, even after soaking the pad for an hour in hot water.

Quote from a member who installed on: "Oh, and it is a royal PITA to get that factory rubber pedal pad onto the extender. You have to heat it in boiling water, hair drying etc, to make the rubber more pliable to stretch it on.
I had sore fingers and broke a tiny blood vessel in my palm when it was all said and done" (WOW)

Also, what is an easy way to remove rubber/metal pad from clutch pedal before installing extender ??
I'm afraid to tackle this supposedly simple job.
Any different suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

You're afraid to remove removable rubber from your pedal? Sack up... That's my only suggestion.

Just f-ing with you. Just yank that sucker off and give it your best. Worst comes to worst you drive around without it on. You don't need it anyways. And you could always take it to a mechanics shop and ask if they can help you throw it back on. Shouldn't take more than 3 minutes if that.

I pulled my stock base model rubber off and switched over to the premium pedals. The old one came off super easy, and I was able to get both the clutch and the brake pedal replaced without using hot water or any type of heat. You just have to finesse it. I did spray a little bit of soapy water solution on both the pedal and the pedal cover to help keep things from sticking. You will be fine. Just go for it.

Don't over think it. It's a relatively simple upgrade that works...

I got an extension for my wife . Was real easy to install . What I did was install the rubber on the extent ion before I installed it on the pedal . Then just grab both sides and widen as far as you can and put it on simple . On a side not I installed it for my wife because she's under 5 foot but I've grown to really like it my self and I'm glad it's on

Installation was no issue, this was thr 2nd car I have installed one in, well worth it, very nice improvement, very nice having the seat moved back further away from the steering wheel.

I tried to pull the clutch pedal cover off, but my fingers are not strong enough, any suggestions without damaging the cover ??

It will come off, keep at it. Same thing when you put it back on, start in a corner and roll it back into place as you go around the entire edge a little at a time.
