The gas pedal on my wife's '96 A6 came apart this weekend...I 
think it was due to my 16YO son's lead foot :)

Wonder where he gets that!

Anyway, I know some of you have installed a hinge on the 
assembly....has anyone actually installed a new pedal?

If so, what's the cost of the assembly and how does it come off 
the post?

I'm learning to ask these things in advance...this weekend I 
swapped out the leveling sensor on the rear suspension of my '99 
A6. This little device tells the Xenon lamps to reaim. It was 
mounted with 2 3 mm allen bolts. The first one was easy to get to, 
the second was largely blocked by a suspension member. After 
spending almost an hour trying (unsuccessfully) to fabricate a 
short 3mm allen key to get to that second bolt, I found the two 
10mm bolts on the other side of the suspension member that held 
the bracket on. 1 minute later the bracket was in my hand and the 
sensor was free.
