04.11.2007: Old pedals
The sorry state of the pedals on a car that's been thoroughly enjoyed for almost 10 years and 350K km. You can tell the previous owner did not accelerate much, but used the brakes and clutch a lot - the rubber pad on the brake pedal is long gone, and the pad on the clutch is coming off too.

Aluminium pedal installation on a Saab 9-5.

The original pedal pads on the car got torn from heavy use, so I decided to replace them with a generic pedal kit from a local auto parts store. The mounting hole pattern differs between kits, so chose a kit that could be attached to your pedals without having to drill into the arm on the back on the pedal. I only had one hole that came too close, so I tapped the thread in it instead of using the nut on the back.

It might be good idea to cover the floor before you start drilling. Getting those metal shavings out of the carpet is not easy, even with a powerful vacuum cleaner.
