If the pin has already kicked out to one side then yes it will stick again, the best bet is to replace the entire pedal assembly as it all wears out different intervals, that way it is all new. It is not hard to replace it yourself, you just need to be a little flexible to get down there .

Thank You! I will let my husband know. Now we just need to see where to purchase the pedal assembly!


Sorry to say but the Ford dealer is the best bet unless you want to take a chance on a used part from an auto salvage yard.
