The only suggestion is to tape the nut and washer together and then you the tip of your finger then using a mirror so you can see work the screw into the nut. Hope this helps. They are a real pain but well worth it. Good Luck

i couldnt put that damn screw and nut in at all..and the washer would not fit in the first place so i was just planning on just putting in the screw and nut. worked on it for an hour or so and still nothing so i said [email protected]*k it. the other 3 are on tight, so the pedal isnt going anywhere. so i decided i am just going to get some gorilla glue and glue that other screw on so it doesnt look stupid with just one missing screw. it'll have the look of all four screws on but only 3 are doing its job...hahaha.. :klavergreg:

I just installed a set of Momo Match pedals (Titanium grey) in my copper red 06' 3s GT, been having exactly the same problem with the gas pedal!!! spent 2 hours trying to get it in today, that mirror idea is genius, can't wait to try it tomorrow!!! :)

totally frustrating putting all the screws in but the gas pedal was a real bitch, I have small hands and still found it difficult but finally got it to work, without the washer

FINALLY managed to get that upper bolt on the gas pedal tightened (enlisted the help of a particularly nimble younger cousin) ... they look amazing, totally worth the effort.
