    Hi all, I have a problem, I don't know how it happened but part of cleat has come away from shoe,
    and is jammed in the pedal, anyone know how to get it out. I have Shimano M515 pedals. I know I can
    release it by twisting it, but I can not get a good enough leverage on it. I am also concerned by
    releasing the tension too much on the pedal, as I remember reading if you make it too loose you need
    a special tool to fix it back properly.

    Any ideas

    Thanks

    I'm not sure about needing a special tool.

    When I got my first pair of spuds, M515s, I didnt do the cleat bolts up tightly enough, clipped the
    pedal onto the shoe (it wasnt attatched to the bike at this point, I was just fiddling) and so when
    I twisted the shoe the clear just movec with it. I released it by simply prising back the clip with
    a screwdriver (ie the bit of the pedal that moves, with the spring and tension adjusty thing under
    it). I dunno if this will work for you, or if youve tried it already. The tension was set quite low
    at the time tho.
