Our old dune buggy is a lot of fun to drive. People stare and say "nice ride, man", and it makes you feel like a celebrity, well kinda. So the only bad part about driving the dune buggy is that the pin holding on the brake pedal doesn't like to stay in. So while you're driving and go to step on the brakes, the pedal just falls on the floor and you have no more brakes. That is not fun, and results in pulling the emergency brake to stop yourself.
The way the brake pedal is connected is this: there is a rod coming out of the firewall with a hole on the end. The brake pedal has a slot on the bottom with a similar hole in it. The rod comes out of the wall and fits in the slot on the brake pedal. Then there is a hardened steel pin that goes through the hole to connect them. The problem is that the pin doesn't like to stay, and is easily wiggled out, leaving you with an unattached brake pedal.
Step 1: Remove the Gas Pedal
On the dune buggy, there is a non-standard gas pedal. I just unscrewed it on one side so that I could unhook the throttle hook from the back and lower the pedal down.
