REMOVAL & INSTALLATION
- To prevent brake fluid from spilling out and damaging the paint, place a protective cover over the fender.
- Detach the negative battery cable.
- Remove the master cylinder cap and remove as much fluid as possible.
- Disconnect and cap the brake lines to keep dirt out.
- Disconnect the wiring from any switches that may be screwed into the master cylinder.
- Remove the two master cylinder mounting nuts and pull the master cylinder away from the booster.
- The reservoir is held into the master cylinder by a press fit into rubber sealing plugs and can easily be pulled off. To reinstall, moisten the plugs with brake fluid and press it on.
- Position the master cylinder and reservoir assembly onto the studs and install the washers and nuts. Tighten the nuts to 15 ft. lbs. (20 Nm).
- Remove the plugs and connect the brake lines.
- Bleed the brake system.
- Install all remaining components in the reverse order of removal.
- Bleeding of the antilock brake system requires the use of a scan tool when ever the brake master cylinder reservoir runs dry. Therefore the removal of a defective master cylinder, on vehicles with ABS, should be performed by a professional repair facility.
