Who has replaced one of these and how much did it suck to replace? I can see some wetness, pedal stuck to the floor a couple of times before parking it in the garage and the brake reservoir is half way down from the full line. I'm not sure if I want to tackle this or just have Ford do it

Are you talking about the plastic eyelet?

It cost me $160 for the part and 1-hour to install because I am not mechanical. I had the same problem. Watched the video on American Muscle, CJ pony parts, and YouTube before I did the work.

I also ungraded the clutch assist spring with the Steeda clutch assist spring kit. Another $160. Took a little longer because I am not a mechanic. You don’t need the spring but the Steeda spring is more responsive Than the stock.

No the whole assembly, looks to be wet from seepage
Looks pretty simple, but I don’t even do most simple stuff anymore. 5-6 years ago I would, but age and arthritis has convinced me otherwise.

TOTALLY understandable. That was the limit of my ability. Don’t know if you have a trusted mechanic. Parts are easy to get. Maybe he/she will give you a break on a one hour install.

I was a shop mechanic for 15 years in my past life. My body took a lot of beatings turning wrenches on late 70s 80s and 90s cars. I bounced out and into hvac in 2006. Then in 2011 I slipped and fell leaving a site and tore the rotator cuff in my left shoulder fully through about an inch long. Now I have a desk job more or less and would rather just pay the dealer to do it. I wouldn't fair well under the dash with this shoulder

I agree! Why not let someone else bust their knuckles. You paid your dues and then some.
