Does anyone know how to unscrew footrest screws?

Because, I have unscrewed one and I can't back the screw back.

Thanks for that.

But, that's for "regular" footrest (not for sport footrest).

As you can see on the picture, I have three screws.

I don't know how to screw it back.

I want to change original screws with new stainless steel screws. But the problem is that you have no chance to screw old screws back. So I have to use bigger screws, So, I wonder how are they originally tightened.

Are they screws or bolts?

I don't know. I have to remove other two screws.

If you try put the first screw back, does it go loosely in, or does it not go in at all?

If the former, it may be there was a loose nut which you have now lost :cry::cry::cry:
If its the latter, then you may have a tuft of carpet or something blocking the thread on a captive nut. The solution to this might be to take the other two screws out. However, if its the loose nut problem, then it will only make matters worse, and it will likely be a "carpet (partially)out" job.

It makes sense.

But it's so stupid to put unfixed nut, isn't it?

Is it big problem to remove carpet out?

I made my own especially as I wear size 13+ shoes.
Mine is a RHD automatic.
You can see the plate the footrest attaches to in one of the pictures. The OE one that is part of the trim is just hopeless so it is totally correct when it is said the trim has to come off - but forever!:D
