I need to remove the brake pedal on my '69 CL350. Can I remove the pedal along with the rod that goes to the back? It looks like quite a chore to remove the rod first since the little clip is to the inside and hard to get to. And also, it looks like I have to completely remove the brake switch to get the spring off. Any pointers here so I don't make the job harder than it has to be? Thanks.
