Hello -

My friend sent me this :

Fixing Toyota's Recalled Pedals: The Video starring Doug the Master Technician — Autoblog

It seems a different repair shim is used based on a gap measurement made by the mechanic. What does that mean? Does a bigger (or smaller?) shim mean the pedal is closer to sticking? Is this to compensate for divergent manufacturing tolerances? Or ... ???
