Is it possible to remove the clutch and brake pedal for the shaft

Question, I have a 1972 Chevelle. Is it possible to remove the clutch and brake pedal for the shaft, after removing the clip from the end, without removing the entire assembly? I need to install new bushings for a popping worn clutch. Thank you...

Cool Re: Brake pedal / bracket removal

First off,Welcome to TC. IDK if that is possible but I think you would get more response by posting a new question explaining your current problem than by resurrecting a 10 year old thread.
Can you explain further what your problem is ?
What do you mean by a "popping" clutch ?
How much free play do you have in the pedal ?

Re: Is it possible to remove the clutch and brake pedal for the shaft

Not sure about a 70, but on my 66, it was easy to add the clutch pedal to my automatic.

The car had the pivot for the clutch pedal. Much easier than changing to a clutch in a Fox Mustang.

Yes you can remove the clutch pedal which has the shaft attached to it and replace bushings. You will have to loosen up the emergency brake pedal assembly so you can move it over slightly but it is a pretty easy job, it just takes several hours and you have to contort under there in tight spaces. If you want to take the drivers seat out, it is only 4 bolts and gives you a lot more room to lay down and do the work.

Those bushings don't usually wear out so as the poster above said what is the problem you are having, i would suspect it is something else.

I believe the answer is yes. I've done some conversions on Camaros and had no issues pulling the shaft and replacing the pedals without pulling the hanger frame. I think there may be more room in the Chevelle.
