Hi,

Replacing the brake master cylinder isn't too hard of a job. When you get the replacement part, make sure it has a lifetime warranty. That way, you'll never have to pay for it again.

First, here is a link that shows how in general one is replaced. You can use this as a guide.

The new brake master cylinder will need bench bled before install. Here is a video that shows how that is done:

Here are directions specific to your vehicle. The attached pics below correlate with the directions.
