could be making it hard. The first is that even though the brakes have the legendary initial bit the brake pedal drops below that of accelerator and make the foot movement awkward. Secondly the pedals are too far apart and stop at the same distance down the pedal arm making it difficult to cover two pedals with one foot. The latter item may in part be solved with widerlonger sports pedal pads (fiat
Can do it no problem. You have to be reasonably hard on the brakes though but no pointy heel and toeing otherwise i guess. So its fine but i admit many other cars have better pedal positions. Its not so much the pedal positions its more that you sit so upright in the panda. That said if you know how to heel and toe youll adapt to it okay. I think the main issue is the absolutely awful feel of the brake

stopping it moving freely. Studying the photo I posted earlier may help you identify the parts you should be looking at. Its a bit awkward because unfortunately the steering column shaft runs diagonally in front of the bits you really want to see. While youre down there in the footwell you could also check the master cylinder isnt leaking. This thread has a picture of what to look for httpwww.fiatforum.com500293802-...r-leaking.html
pivot a long spring mounted vertically between a lug on the pedal and the mounting frame and that seems to all be in order. But second note (more in the second shot where the spring is hidden behind the steering column) the weepage of hydraulic fluid where the actuator goes into the master cylinder. Suspect thatll be the problem then... Attached Thumbnails     __________________ 2005 panda

anyone fitted these pedals to their panda httpwww.fiatonlineshop.co.ukprod...edals_50901701 still would love abarth 500 ones but i dont wanna waste my money
Get the master cylinder checked out my pedal was high from new. On the first service they told me the master cyliner needing replacing as it was causing the pedal to be to high. I just thought all pandas were like that it was much better after they replaced it. I am not the first person on here to have had this problem.

Easily sorted with some pedal extensions to increase the length of the throttle pedal eg httpwww.shopwiki.co.uk_SparcopedalExtensions Chris

Youre not alone - were currently awaiting delivery of our new panda and my wifes one reservation is that her size 4.5 feet only just touch the accelerator pedal with her heel on the floor - Ive promised her that the very first thing Ill do upon delivery is make up a pedal extension to screw to the accelerator - looks easy enough....

a problem. With your foot off the pedal the engine management system will automatically adjust the amount of fuel injected to maintain tickover rpm through a closed loop feedback system. The time to worry would be if it didnt do this. And if you do it when the engine is cold youll go a bit faster because the ECU will keep the engine at fast idle (about 1200rpm IIRC).

Its clearly reflected in the fuel burn to warmup from personal experience my panda is noticeably less efficient than my 500 at low temperatures - this has

Worth to check the pedal to pedal clearance as theyre very close on the pandaAnd the plates youd like to install seem quite wide
I was thinking that also but sizes arent given in the description. I have found another set that the seller claims would fit a panda they seem closer to the actual size and this seller does say what the pedal size is still Ill get down today and see what the clearance on the panda is panda pedals Quite a nice looking set imo still Im only really looking for replacements for my worn ones. Cheers
Hi there welcome to the fiatForum Quite a big change from a Passat to a 100HP talk about chalk and cheese I think the pedals are just something to get used to sadly (unless you can built-up the floor with particularly luxurious mats). However like you say a bit of experimentation with seat positioning might help its easy to just assume your normal position will work in every car...
adjusted so that with your back firmly placed in the seat and your arm fully extended in front of you your wrist should be resting nicely on top of the steering wheel. This will put a slight bend in your elbow when using the 10-2 or 9-3 positions like you should. Also get as high up as the seat roof and steering wheel allows you to. Youll have a much better view of traffic. (not too much in the panda
Ricambi had in stock a repair kit for worn pedal box assy bushes. Most Easterly pandas VmanC liked this post
Seems to be a common problem - especially for ladies with small feet Simple solution is to buy some boy racer-type alloy pedal extensions and screw onto the accelerator pedal (the pedal is hard plastic and easily drilled). Did this on our panda for my wife with size 4.5 feet.
Just to help this thread Ill put some tehnical pic taken from Zastava Yugo but think its the same servo..... Took a look onto tolerances shown at the bottom of the pic due to proper pedal adjusting. After adjusting - some sealing- paste should be used onto this screw just to fix his position. Cheers Aca Attached Thumbnails   Most Easterly pandas thanked for this post
Originally Posted by Most Easterly pandas Ok. I only hade to adjust the screw off about 2 turns and it released the brake. The pedal still has proper feel to it so alls fine. You just need to play about with it to get it right. I would reccommend though that you do it with the brake warm. It looks to me as though it gives a better indication of were to adjust the screw to.
I believe all panda models have this brake slop in the system that means we get to have the master cylinder on the left hand side and not directly in front of the pedal on the engine side of the firewall............ I dont think there is a remedy for this Ian

...or less expensive... Do you have mats in the footwell I have had this happen to me a couple of times and its simply been that the end of the pedal has slipped under the (official fiat no less) floor mat and been held down. I can release the pedal by dragging the mat back with my heel. The mat should have come with a little clip to secure it in place but didnt. Moving the mat is cheaper than the master cylinder -) Pete
