Is it normal for gas pedal to move side to side slightly
Can you please try taking your hand and move gas pedal lightly side to side ? I was cleaning the pedals and noticed it . Did not notice while driving at all. And it has the metal covers on the pedalDo not recall any gas pedal having any real side movement. 'course, I never tried to move the pedal sideways with my foot just pressed straight down.
Based on my experience I'd say it is not normal. Could be the pedal or pedal hardware -- hinge/pivot -- has experienced excessive wear or even suffered from a mechanical failure.
