Anyone remove the dead pedal without destroying it?

My buddy basically ripped the dead pedal apart on his E46 and it looks pretty simlar on our car. I was wondering if it can be removed without breaking it?

I had to break it to install the ACS dead pedal, I don't think there's another way, unless you screw it on top of the M pedal

That's what I though, but then I'd have 4 holes in the aluminum face of the M dead pedal and would probably get dinged for it when the car is returned.
