Foot Rest Ideas - E-Class

W212 With Pale Interior.

My E Class has Beige carpets (not my favourite) and the foot rest is carpeted, I would have expected rubber but there you go.

Instead of changing into my slippers to drive, does anyone have any ideas on what to use to cover the foot rest in order that the carpet is somewhat protected, I drive in black polished shoes and despite having the car for a short time it is now a mess around the foot rest area.

Also wish there was some option for accelerator foot resting when on cruise.

Ideas most welcome.

I am in the same position as you. Not got an answer for the left footrest for you.

I hope someone has an ingenious idea that we can use.

I have supaguarded the carpet and have simply brushed debris and muck off so far but would prefer a better solution.

In terms of the other foot i wouldn't want to have another rest or anything - too dangerous for me. What happens if you want to brake suddenly?

A big one
On the 211, the footwell mat has a section that covers the footrest. Is this not the case on the 212?

Get a piece of black carpet - could cut from "proper" car overmats with rubber backing so no fraying. Get some of these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/4-Car-car...arts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item43b8fae1d4 - fit the triangular elements to the underside of the black carpet & fit the small round studs to the original mats with some small nuts & bolts (washers underneath) so the black bit will clip in place. Take a bit of time & it would look tidy :)

I have a W212 with beige seats etc but it has black carpets. I remember interiors on some of the older E Classes being somewhat garish when everything had to match in a blaze of red or blue, including the steering wheel.

Yeah i know what you mean. This foot plate will be fine for the sole of the shoe but not the edge.

i might try and cut a small piece of beige carpet i have and try and fix it to that side bit you are talking about - it won't be pretty or match perfectly but it will do the job of stopping the side carpet getting full of muck. I think it might be useful in winter time with wet shoes etc

Good ol' Velcro would help fix any "additions" ;)

I'm adding my frustration at not having a foot rest on the W212 although I'm in a slightly luckier position as I have dark carpets. Really not sure why neither the fabric nor rubber fitted mats include a foot rest for your left foot.

The link above doesn't work anymore as it was posted a while back now. Has anyone tried something like this?

If so, how is it secured? Do you poke the screws through the carpet or do you have to drill new holes in the flooring (not something I'd keen on).

I usually just rest my foot on the accelerator when on cruise, there is a tiny bit of play in it so you can rest on it without actually accelerating

I bought a set of steel pedals, with an appropriately shaped accelerator pedal (mine is actually a different type), trimmed the rubber off, and glued a strip of velcro to it - that way it can be fixed to the floor mat (which is what I have at the moment), or the carpet, and no drilling required:

I have a 212 with pale carpets and bought a metal footrest for it. It came with screws which of fitted would have gone through the metal,floor so I tried Velcro. Unfortunately the Velcro I used did not stick to the carpet.
Has anyone had success getting Velcro to stick to w212 carpet?

Sounds tricky to me maybe you could "pop" rivet plates to the carpets for the rests to attach to.
It does mean small holes though.
