Pedal Cover Fell Off

Not sure how this happened but the clutch pedal cover came off on a leisurely daily drive back from work. It was a PITA to put back on and the only successful way was to:
1. be patient - consume an entire beverage unit of your choice before you start
2. get the top of the pedal cover rubber around the top of the pedal
3. use the smallest flat screwdriver you have (that is not sharp) and slowly work both sides down whilst holding the pedal cover at the top (from sliding up)
4. slowly work the one bottom side around to meet the other bottom side
5. enjoy your success with another beverage and a cigar (see the lounge for more ideas)

If you ask me this pedal cover design reminds me of Ford's design (slip off often as a design specification) that is currently plaguing the Ford ST.

Enjoy.

on this note - someone must be buying and hoarding Modela Negra (tho' not as bad as .22LR). Every store in Cincinnati has no cases or 6-packs.
