I'm replacing the bushings in the pedal bracket. I have everything else disconnected. It's spring loaded and slides around the push rod. 2003 Ford Ranger

My info says remove negative battery cable-- remove electrical connector from switch, the spread switch apart to remove.

Can you post a photo on how the bushing, wire, and brake rod go back on the pedal arm?

I got it back together. I found that my problem was I need to replace the pedal assembly bracket. Is there a step by step procedure on how to do that? I know it's real tight and everything is in the way.

Don't have a step by step or I haven't found one. Looks like two bolts and four nuts. You have to support the brake master cylinder and booster, before removing.

I will, can you tell if the assembly is hitting anything under the dash. My biggest problem is I can't see anything from here.

I also have a 1995 Mercury Sable that I'm desperatley trying to get back on the road. I got insurance and tag on it and broke the next day. Check engine light comes on after running a few minutes and runs bad with black smoke coming out of tail pipe. It seems like it's not shifting right. It will only do 45mph at 3000rpms. I tried to pull the code with a friends scanner and it wont pull. I've tried jumping the eec and using the scanner. My friends scanner is a snap on with right adaptor and computer card.

It's hitting something towards the front of the dash. I think if the clutch push rod and brake rod was not there I might be able to get it out.
