Does anyone know how to remove the rod that connects the pedal to the booster?? It seems to turn and pivot, and i was wondering if i could just pull it out? i tried a little and it not so easy.

thanks

There is a pin that passes thru the brake pedal, remove a clip and the pin comes out, the rod will come out with the booster.

Good Luck.

The rod goes into a plastic hub inside the booster. It is very fragile, be careful. The rod presses on a deflection disc that allows air into the booster when brakes are applied.

I'll check my manual when I get home to see if it can be removed without splitting the booster.

There is a snap ring on the inside end of the rod that must be removed.
The booster has to be completely dissassembled to do that.

Thanx
