Removal of Foot Pedal Assembly
Locate the (4) protective covers and pry them off with a knife or similar tool to uncover the screws underneath.
Once the covers have been removed you will now have access to the top of the 3 MM hex key bolt.
Using the 3 MM hex key tool and the 7 MM socket and driver with extension (you can also use a 7 MM open-ended wrench) loosen and remove the 4 bolts to separate the foot pedal assembly from the Forecaddy.
With the assembly removed from the Forecaddy, take the assembly and flip it over to locate the 2.5 MM hex key screws and remove them to expose the shaft that holds the foot pedal in place.
With the cover plate removed slide the shaft out to the right (based on the above orientation) and the foot pedal will come out of the top-side of the assembly. Please note that the foot pedal has two springs under the pedal to return it to an upright position. They are under pressure so please wear eye protection.
Reassembly of Foot Pedal Assembly
We will now reverse the process. With your new foot pedal place it back into the unit and slide the shaft in from the right side. Place the cover back on the assembly and using the 2.5 MM hex key wrench tighten the cover back to the assembly.
Now flip the assembly over and locate the springs for the next part of the process.
Locate the spring pockets and place the spring in the bottom of the pocket as indicated and then compress the spring to seat it in the pocket of the foot pedal. Repeat this process for the other spring. See the image below.
Before the final assembly, you should lubricate the two tabs with a spray of WD-40 or similar lubricant.
Now we are ready to reassemble the Forecaddy foot pedal assembly back on the cart. Locate the 4 hex hey 3 MM bolts with nuts in preparation for reassembly. Using the 3 MM hex key wrench and the 7 MM socket or open-ended wrench insert and the bolts and add the corresponding nuts to the bottom and tighten.
Locate the 4 plastic covers and replace them.
