I took my brake and gas assembly off to replace my blower motor and when I put it back in the push rod won't depress.

Welcome to 2CarPros.

I attached two pictures. Is the highlighted part in picture 1 what you are referring to? If it is, look at picture 2 and let me know if that is how you connected it.

Here are the directions specific to your vehicle for removal and replacement of the brake pedal. See if you did what they explain. The remaining pictures correlate with these directions.

Yes, I watched a few videos and made sure to put everything back exactly as I took it apart. It turned out to be pressure built up in the master cylinder as soon as I reconnected the battery and started it it adjusted and works properly. My A/C however is still not working. Think I have to replace the switches. Thank you for your time and help I appreciate it.

You are very welcome. Let us know if you need anything in the future. If you want to throw in questions related to the AC, just start a new thread. We are trying to keep the threads limited to one topic so it is helpful for others.

Take care,
Joe
