Hello Ian,
Click here for the pedal disassembly instructions. The pedal assembly must be checked to see what is missing and worn, and then these parts replaced.

Hi Stan - Thanks for that

The parts that fell onto the floor are Nos 18 , 31 , 32 and part of the aluminium casting that part no 32 sits in ( not shown on the drawings)

The casting as far as I can see has a round hope in the centre and the bit that snapped off is a flat plate that runs down the side of the casting

Hi Ian,
Only these parts are available separately. So it means that the bracket 10 needs to be replaced as well.

regards,
Stan
