4 Renew the bushes as necessary.
5 Reassembly and refitting are reversals of removal and dismantling. Apply a little grease to the bushes when installing.

The travel can be reduced in the following way if the upper surface of the pedal pad is less than 200.0 mm above the metal surface of the floor.
