As you step on the accelerator pedal in your vehicle, you probably aren’t even thinking about the accelerator pad. It seems we don’t usually notice this part until it’s badly worn, ripped, or lifting. It’s important to keep this pad in good condition so your foot doesn’t catch or slip on it. This is exactly why it’s sometimes necessary to buy a new accelerator pad.

  • Be sure you are searching for a replacement accelerator pad based on your vehicle’s make, model, and year. This part needs to fit snugly and securely so you don’t risk it popping off, and potentially leading to an accident as your foot fumbles for the pedal.

  • Look for an accelerator pad that offers good grip/traction. This is even more important in bad weather when your shoes can sometimes have a layer of snow/slush on the soles of them.

  • There is a wide range of pricing available on accelerator pads. Some come with a warranty to ensure you're happy with the purchase. Replacing the accelerator pad is something most people can do on their own, but if you’re unsure you can always head to a professional mechanic.

The accelerator pad is found on the top of your gas pedal, which you use on a daily basis. Over time the pad can become worn and lose its grip. Once this happens it’s very important to replace it in order to ensure your safety.
