2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion Discussion, Gas/Brake Pedal Accessory Kit in Cadillac CTS Second Generation Forum - 2008-2013; I have a 2011 CTS AWD Premium and would like to know if I purchase the brake and gas pedal ...
You can put it on yourself. The sport brake pedal is just a pedal cover, and you can swap it out with the old one in a couple minutes. The gas pedal is a little more tricky, but def doable if you are even a little mechanically inclined. You have to remove 3 screws holding on the underside kickplate of the steering column shroud. Then you pull that down to expose the electrical connector and 3 botls holding on the gas pedal assembly, unhook and remove all of those, replace with the new pedal assembly and hook everything back up. Then screw back in the 3 screws you removed and you're done. It is really easy, and mine came with instructions with pictures.

The gas pedal was on quickly but the brake pedal fought me for an hour. Theproblem was getting the rubber lip over the brake pedal mount and it was done on a 65 degree day. Also, I think they recommend you heat the rubber to make it pliable. I used a short and flat screw driver to pry the rubber over the last corner and be careful so you do not run the screw driver through the rubber lip. The sport pedals look really great but the brake pedal is slippery on the edge next to the accelerater pedal which is where I press with my foot--there is no rubber gripping strip in that area.
