Hi im pretty new here and this is my first post. I was wondering if anyone had ever looked at the gas pedal, seen that there is still room for it to go and tried to cut a section of the carpet to push it farther? I cut a sliver of the carpet to look under and saw that there is a block of plastic or something to stop it from going farther. What is this little thing and can it be removed? or is it there for some reason?
