I also have those open end wrenches that have the notch so it has a ratcheting motion. Don't know what they're called, but I thought it was a joke until I tried them. Use them all the time.

except that one nut thats on the bottom towards the side of the car. I couldnt get a wrench on it for the life of me, and a ratchet wouldnt fit. Finally moved the hard brake lines and managed to get it loose. Overall it took me about 10 minutes to do, but I saved a few minutes because that little pin thing is supposed to be held on by a clip, which is MIA. Relatively easily pushed out. I dont have an engine in it either so the bottom inside nut might be more difficult with one in place but I dont know for sure.

But I had a bang up time getting those bolts off, but unbolting the thing from the firewall was easy as could be. Then I wondered if I had just done that first if it would have been way easier to unbolt the break booster after the whatchamacallit had been removed from the firewall first. Follow?

Because those top nuts are nothing compared to the ones beneath it.

If you remove the break cylinder first, it really should work. Any objections anyone?

If you try it and screw something up let me know.

Off course I am not liable. :-)
