REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
See Figures 1 and 2
Brake pedal removal procedures from 1983-95 have changed very little and, although there may be slight differences, this one procedure covers all Pick-ups and Monteros.
- Disconnect the negative battery cable from the battery.
- Remove the stop light (brake) switch from the pedal support member.
- Disconnect the brake pedal return spring from the brake pedal and the dash-mounted bracket.
- Remove the cotter pin and flat washer, which hold the clevis pin in place on the brake pedal. The clevis pin holds the brake actuating rod onto the brake pedal.
- Disconnect the actuating rod from the brake pedal once the clevis pin has been removed.
- Remove the cotter pin and flat washer from the stud holding the shift lock cable (if so equipped) to the brake pedal. Disconnect the end of the shift lock cable from the brake pedal.
- Remove the brake pedal shaft, nut and washer. Pull the brake pedal down and out of the pedal support member.
- If need be, remove the two brake pedal bushings and the spacer from the upper end of the brake pedal.
- To install, mount the two bushings and the spacer back onto the upper end of the brake pedal, if removed.
- Slide the brake pedal up into its position in the pedal support member, then install the brake pedal shaft, washer and nut. Tighten the nut to 18-25 ft. lbs. (25-35 Nm).
- Hook the end of the shift lock cable onto its mounting stud on the brake pedal, then instal the washer and a new cotter pin.
- Install the clevis pin into the brake pedal, after positioning the brake actuating rod around the brake pedal arm. Install the washer and a new cotter pin to the clevis pin.
- Hook the return spring to the dash-mounted bracket, then to the brake pedal arm.
- Install the stop light (brake) switch to the pedal support member. Adjust the distance of the stop light switch-refer to the procedures in this section.
- Connect the negative battery cable.
