REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
Be careful not to spill brake fluid on the painted surfaces. It will damage the paint. If a spill occurs, flush the area with plenty of fresh water.
- Thoroughly clean all dirt and debris from the master cylinder cap and the area surrounding the cap.
- Unplug the fluid level warning switch connector.
- Use a syringe or similar tool to remove as much fluid as possible from the reservoir.
- Carefully disconnect the brake lines at the master cylinder.
To prevent line damage, use a line wrench. Regular open-end wrenches are NOT recommended. Take great care not to bend or deform the lines. Plug the lines to keep dirt from entering.
- Remove the nuts holding the master cylinder to the booster. Unbolt the 3-way or 4-way union.
When removing the cylinder, take care to recover the clamps, gaskets, etc.
- Using a new gasket, install the master cylinder onto the brake booster. Tighten the mounting nuts to 9 ft. lbs. (13 Nm).
- Attach the union. Carefully connect the brake tubes, initially threading them into place by hand. Once properly engaged, tighten the fittings to 11 ft. lbs. (15 Nm).
- Connect the wiring harness for the brake fluid switch.
- Fill the brake fluid reservoir with fluid to the "MAX" line. Check the leakage.
- Bleed the brake system. Check again for any leakage.
- Check and adjust the brake pedal.
