After about an hour of sweating and putting the popped out metal back in I finally decided to throw in the towel and pay my delership to install them (they took me right in, so that was cool). It was $45.00 well spent! I put the the ones that you have to drill and mess with those small screws in another car and that was 1000x easier than stretching the pads without popping the metal out especially with the smaller pedals on a 6 speed. You are a way better man than I am Ehden, my hat's off to you!
