      Why not press the pedal down in the car and throw spacers in the extended spring coils. Then release the pedal and pull it out.

      Wasn't being a smart ass. Posted so others with pedals in the car wouldn't pull the assembly before releasing the spring.DD

      If there's one thing I've learned in my semi-advanced age is that are many ways to accomplish the same goal. I appreciate that members here share their methodology to help others.

      Thanks for sharing

      A great tech article in Mopar Muscle this month. Push down the pedal and stuff washers between the open wraps of the springs. Also great info about modifying the linkage stroke for better disengagement at higher rpm's. toolman

      I read your original post and saw your photos. Sorry, I didn't realize you were re-posting photos and instructions. Those springs are a pain to remove for sure.

      Thx 67valiant, & toolmanmike (a good read )

      Funny anecdote...

      Quote from a long time friend.

      "the third thing that will still be functional after a nuclear holocaust is those
      (expletive deleted ) Mopar clutch pedal return springs".

      FYI, the other two are,
      1)door dingers
      2) cockroaches

      lmao.

      Thx again gents, always a pleasure!!!

      SO............How do you install the spring back on? LOL

      I'm having trouble with a HD unit with the side bracket which bolts to the dog house.

      Just do the steps in reverse! But I'm not really sure this method is aplicable to the HD clutch pedal setup.

      To all,
      The only way I was able to remove the ^+&%@# spring, was to cut it off with a Dremel tool, while the pedal assembly is still in the car. I tried washers, pry bars, large screw drivers, cussing cursing, just about everything except "Holy Water", NOTHING WORKED, there was almost no room to work in. My car is a 69 Dodge Dart. MAKE SURE you have a water soaked towel stuffed up behind the assembly, so the spark won't burn the carpeting.

      Years ago my dad came up with the washer idea when the clutch pedal broke and I didn't know how I was going to get the spring back in since it goes in expanded. He said expand it with a come along put 2"x1/8" thick washers between some of the coils at the bottom, drop it in and slide the washers out. Worked like a champ. Later experience I found only need 4 of these washers. To take it out shove 4 in the bottom of the spring have someone push on the pedal and just lift it out. As you put them in the bottom of the coil it puts an arc in the spring which helps you take it out. I keep 4 of those washers in the tool box.

      I think I read somewhere where someone used a floor jack to expand the spring to insert washers for reinstalling it. You hook one end around the front axle of the jack then remove the jack saddle and hook the other end of the saddle hole and pump.

      Hadn't thought of using a floor jack. Good idea.

      PO left washers in. Even though they were thin fender washers I had to drive them part through with a screwdriver and hammer. Then grasp with vise grips, turn ,pull, twist and cuss to get them out. Pushing clutch to the floor would not release any of them , just make them somewhat easier to pull.
