Clutch Pedal Shaft Upgrade
(STANDARD Length Shaft Kit for ’58-’79)
$44 + $11 shipping and insurance US
$44 + $35 shipping International
(all major credit cards accepted, Paypal not required)

NOTE:  Please choose EITHER this Standard Length Shaft Kit OR the Big Boy Pedal Extender Kit when purchasing.  They are both complete kits that perform the same function.  The only difference is the Big Boy’s longer pedal shaft provides more space between the clutch and brake pedals, for comfort (and those bigger feet).

The Engineering team at Classic Bug Parts has the solution to the problem with the hook and loop design of the old clutch pedal shaft and clutch cable on Classic Volkswagens.  On the original part there is constant wear on the clutch pedal shaft hook and on the loop of the cable end, as they pull against each other every time the clutch pedal is pressed in and out.   The old hook and loop design is known to break over time.  This is a safety issue that could even be a factor in a future collision.

The problem is gone with this improved Clutch Pedal Shaft design.  It works like a bearing for smooth pedal operation. Three years of testing on the new design shows no wear to the clutch pedal shaft cable locating pin.

Installing the clutch cable to the newly designed Clutch Pedal Shaft is a snap, just pull the clutch cable a few inches out of the tunnel and attach the clutch cable onto the locating pin, place the flat washer on, then tighten the Nylock nut, and finally slide the pedal assembly back in the tunnel. It’s that easy.

SEE THE INSTRUCTIONAL VIDEO BELOW for more detail.

The kit works with a STOCK CLUTCH CABLE which we highly recommend you replace as well. (The cable is not available through our website at this time, but is available through your local supplier, or here at Wolfsburg West.)

IMG_0104We highly recommend you also include a replacement set of bushings for your pedal cluster at $18. with your clutch upgrade.

Optionally, if your Brake Pedal Shaft is beyond reconditioning, this is the perfect time to replace the old rusted steel shaft with a new 303 stainless steel shaft that will never rust.  The 4 bushings above are included with this new shaft.

A replacement Clutch Shaft Pedal Pin IS included with your kit.
