I have to change one of the studs on the firewall which booster/mc bolted on. How can I take it off? Is there a weld on that in the back? Can I drill it out and instal a new one(where can I get one)?
Thanks,
Ismail

They are welded on to the pedal bracket.

It might be a friction weld, not a tack weld. If that is the case, even if you drilled out the center, the head would still be welded to the bracket. The head is flat, like a wheel stud.

I guess you would have to drill out the stud, leaving the head welded to the bracket with a hole in the center so it would be like a washer, just slip a bolt through the center of it.

Remove the pedal assembly then you can get a good look at it. You'll need to remove the clevis pin for the booster push rod. Then remove the booster. Remove three nuts securing the pedal assembly to the dash / steering wheel. Disconnect the pedal switch and the hole thing will come out so you can work on it.

Dnult, you mean that whole bracket/assambly which hole in the center and 4 studs as a whole unit comes out?
Than, it's not a problem.
Thanks

Yup. Aside from supporting the booster / MS and the steering column, it should be a pretty straight forward operation. Definately the way to do surgery on the stud.

Dnult,
thank you, it was a breeze. I'm allready done with it.
