(1). First step is remove the floor board, please consult the following DIY on how to remove the floor board. (It is optional if you want to remove the seat or not, when this DIY was performed the seats was removed for easier access.
(2). You will need to use a vice grip plier
to close off the hydraulic inlet hose to the clutch master cylinder before
pulling off the tube, it is connected to the master cylinder by means of
the rubber grommet. You will need an in-line wrench to loosen the
nut on the outlet line and pull it off. * It is difficult to get
the outlet line to come up far enough to clear the master cylinder, but
it is possible. There should be little or no fluid to come out of
the outlet line, but just to have a rag handy if it does.
Note: It is recommended by the shop manual that you mount the pedal assembly in a vise while it is being worked on.
(6). Partially push the clutch pedal in
so that the hole on the white plastic spring tension holder lines up with
the hole on the side of the frame, so you can insert a punch (drift) to
hold the tension spring and release hold the tension off so that the master
cylinder can be removed.
(9). Now it would also be a good time to
remove the cruise control switch by loosen the two philips screws.
(You may also want to mark the position of the micro switch prior to the
removal to save time on installation position adjustment)
(13). Once the kinematic lever is removed
you can replace it with the updated unit. Notice the notch on the
teeth of the shaft and the kinematic lever, when installing you will need
to line them up together precisely.
(14). Use the clutch pedal shaft nut to tighten the kinematic lever to the shaft, but do not use too much force. As soon as the kinematic lever is secure on the shaft then remove the drift (punch) from where you first used in #6 in the hole on the white plastic spring tension holder lines up with the hole on the side of the frame. And then tighten the clutch shaft bolt to 34 Nm.
(15). Install the cruise control micro switch back to the pre marked position, you may not want to tighten the philips screws all the way since you may need to adjust it after the master cylinder is installed.
(17). Tighten the two bolts for the master cylinder, and adjust the cruise control micro switch. The micro switch must be triggered (clicking sound) on the first few millimeter of the pedal travel.
(18). Set the adjustment screw of the servo spring to the dimension of 6mm. The 6mm distance is measured from the inner face of the bolt head and the rocker.
(19). Install the pedal assembly back into the car and install the brake, throttle linkage back on and plug in the brake and cruise control connector. And check for brake light function.
(20). Bleed the system through the clutch
slave cylinder. To see procedure click
