C4 Pedal spacing

Post by the2ems »

Been driving the C4 for two weeks now, and struggling with foot placement on the clutch pedal. I keep catching the “foot rest” to the left, or the brake pedal to the right, more so when braking at the same time. It’s never taken me this long to get used to a car before. Anyone else had the same problem? Any advice?

That problem does beg the question what size and type of shoes are you using?
I used to be indecisive, now I'm not so sure!

Same size as me, I had similar issues many years ago with my brother-in-laws Renault 4. I used to wear my yachting deck shoes which were about as slim as I owned to make it easier. However I have heard of people taking the angle grinder to trim the brake pedal and footrest but I don't know if that is possible in a C4. :)

Really? It’s my only issue with the car so far (apart from the failed update, which is now fixed) Maybe it’s designed for ladies :roll:
