How to remove brake linkage in engine bay?

Post by daveyheats » Fri Jan 07, 2022 10:46 pm

Evening all. I've emptied the engine bay in my Scala in preparation for a respray, and having real difficulty working out how to remove the brake linkage, or more specifically the bracket immediately infront of the pedals.

I've managed to remove the bracket supporting the servo, but no idea how to remove the other side.

Any advice appreciated!

Apart from the bolts through the bulkhead, there are two nuts underneath the bracket in the engine bay.

So having cleared away decade's of grease, it turned out the 2 bolts underneath the bracket had been welded on.
10 minutes with the dremel and the linkage is out.
