Braking system / Footbrake pedal - removal and refitting

1 The brake and clutch pedals share a common bracket assembly and pivot shaft.

2 Remove the clutch pedal.

3 Extract the clip and withdraw the clevis pin securing the servo pushrod.

4 Extract the clip from the pivot shaft, unhook the return spring, withdraw the pivot shaft and remove the pedal.

5 Check the pedal bushes for wear. If necessary, drive them out from each side and press in new bushes using a soft-jawed vice.

6 Refitting is a reversal of removal, but lubricate the pivot shaft with a little multi-purpose grease.
