500 big foot modification.

Having long legs and big (size11) feet I always found space a bit tight in the footwell of our 500. This simple mod gives a little more space around the clutch foot rest and makes a big difference.

Re: 500 big foot modification.

I just chopped out the toe end of the footrest using a Fiem multitool. Plastic is soft so you could do it with a hacksaw or even a knife. There isn't a lot of space, behind it is the housing for the aircon pollen filter, but you gain at least 30mm.
