On my BCW rather than moving the bench seat back and forth,
which would be uncomfortable because the steering wheel
would be to close to the driver?s chest, I made pedal extenders
for shorter drivers to use. The extenders bolt onto the clutch
and brake pedals. The accelerator seemed to be all right for
everyone. The extenders work well except that they take a
couple of minutes to put on and they have to be taken off before
I can drive. They also beat up my pedal pads, although with a
simple design change I could resolve that problem.
I have been toying with the idea of going to a fully hydraulic
pedal assembly (clutch, brake, and accelerator pedals).
Performance VW shops like Bugstuff and CB Performance
carry hydraulic pedal assemblies for dune buggies. With the
hydraulic assemblies, pressing on the pedal actuates a piston
behind the pedal creating pressure in a line running to a slave
cylinder that turns that pressure into movement, just as in any
braking system. With the use of flexible hoses at the pedals (to
connect them to the steel lines) and a pedal track mounting
system, all three pedals could be easily relocated for different
drivers. Performance shops also carry track systems for
mounting the pedals to the floor pan.
