its a pain but it does come off, obviously you got the clip out.
if i recall i took some side cuts through the clutch firewall hole,
and basically broke it off. i also cut it a little with my key hole saw
with a hack saw blade on it. cant remember if that helped.
either way im pretty sure i broke it to get it off.

Basically what i ended up doing. Pain in the ass to get off but it is worth it once you get your aftermarket one on. I used a steak knife(only thing i could find) but i recommend using a hacksaw and just cutting it in half. Then pull it apart and get it out of there.

I pulled the pedal assembly out to put in mine. More work but no damage to the car. Drop the steering column out of the way, then the 4 bolts to the firewall. The pedals will slide out(with some effort). I usually take the gauge cluster out to ease things, helps especially when your putting the cable in. I learned this when I converted the trans, I found it easier than trying to wedge my hands up into the dash. How do you guys find the clearance to get a saw on it???

you get a keyhole saw, we use them to cut holes in drywall,
just put a hacksaw blade on it. basically you just need a handle
for a hacksaw blade. how bout a ginsoo knife.
dremmel sounds good too, you just need to cut it up enough to break it off with some needle nose pliers or whatever works
