did it on my 05 V6, Moved the cover box towards the firewall direction.

don't feel any change. the throttle response is like before. I think my problem is not the dead zone, it is the lag that when I hit the throttle the engine will not rev up immediately. also I looked at my rev1 part, seems my brushes are already touching the carbon part.

Maybe a ECU tune is the only way to fix the lag for me.

10 minutes max spent on doing this mod!!! WELL worth it!!

Thanks for this tip!!
old thread but a goody.. i had about 1/4 - 1/2 play. moved cover at top which moved about 1/8. Screwed back in and now perfect. Now my play is 0-1/8 before throttle response. : )

I just did this to my 06. I just clocked the cover towards the firewall and added some shim tape between the pedal and the housing. Its much better but not perfect. I plan to add more tape.

resurrection of old thread. Would start new but too much info here to refer to.
Have a 2010 GT Premium. My wires were bent at a right angle and the arms were pretty much straight so I was not going to mess with the wires. I loosened the side cover that contains the circuit board and it didn't seem to want to move. I took out all the screw except the one farthest from the electrical plug. Once I did this the cover would slide back and forth. I slide it fully forward, moving the board towards the wires (front of the car). Installed and started the car. Great pedal response except the car now idled at 1200 RPM. I left the pedal hanging in the car and removed all but the bottom screw and the one on the top left. I then used a screwdriver to slide the cover back to where it no longer affected the idle. With the car running I installed the other 3 screws. The idle again increased. So I removed the 3 screws again and this time I installed the screws one at a time until I discovered which screw was affecting the idle. I then installed and tightened all but the one affecting the idle. Now when I installed the 5th screw it did not affect the idle. The cover holes are slotted, you may need to open the slots up a bit to make this work. It's VERY sensitive. Be sure your car is warmed up BEFORE you attempt to do this and definitely don't install the pedal until you have tested it. My .02

You probably needed to run through the throttle reset procedure after making each little tweak.

I tried the proceedure where you slowly depress the pedal to the floor with the key in the on position. Held it there for 5 seconds and then slowly released the pedal. In my case it made no difference. Is there a better way to do it?

I read rather recently where it was suggested to go through the procedure two or three times. No idea if that would help, but it couldn't hurt to try.

Back to back or turn off key between proceedures?

Not sure. I should have copied and pasted it into a file, but I didn't. If I run across it again I'll post it up.

Found these:

Reset:
With the vehicle at a complete stop, set the parking brake.
Put the gearshift in neutral, turn off all accessories.
Turn on car without starting the engine.
Wait till the dash lights stabilize (some of them will turn off)
Step on the gas pedal in one smooth and steady motion
Once gas pedal hits the bottom, let go.
Turn off car and wait 4-5 seconds.
Turn on the engine.


Recalibrating the gas pedal and throttle body:
1- Turn the ignition to ON without starting the engine(dashboard lights come on and chime sounds).
2- After the chime stops, smoothly depress the gas pedal to the floor while counting 1001-1002-1003.
3- Release the gas pedal using the same procedure in 2.
4- Wait 6 seconds, and turn the ignition to OFF.
5- Wait 6 sec., and repeat steps 1-4 two more times.
You can here ticking when you do it and then the engine light blinks when your done.


Oddly in both forums people reported a benefit.
