Auto - swapping brake and accelerator pedals around by pob06



pob06
Exactly what it says on the title.

I'm just thinking of back up plans for after my op next week.

Is it possible and does anyone have experience of swapping the brake and accelerator pedals around on a R75 ie Brake on the right, accelerator on the left?.

I did see a vauxhall on fleabay that could have the accelerator positioned either side of the brake.

Anyone able to give me some thoughts/ideas etc??

Interesting!

I do wonder if this would be technically "legal" but then, why not, as many cars are adapted for their own users, sometimes with only hand controls

Good luck with the op

You've got an auto so it should be easier. Change the large brake pedal for a smaller manual pedal so it remains in the same place because it needs to connect with the master cylinder.

The accelerator can then go on the left of the brake. Do not think the petrol are fly by wire so you will need to route the cable in some way.

Are the LHD pedals different to the RHD? you might need to mix these and / or possibly some welding.

Certainly should be possible but do tell your insurance company.
