undo the the vacuum hoses and make sure you make a diagram of where each hose goes. move them out of the way.
undo the four bolts that attach the master cyclinder to the booster. use a wire coat hanger or just wire to support it. you don't want to bend or break the brake lines.
undo the four bolts that hold the booster to the firewall. carefully pull it away from the firewall. you will see a small are there with a clip. remove the clip and unhook the arm.
reverse those instructions to put it back together
However BEFORE you do that. Make sure that none of the vaccuum hoses are leaking.
please take a moment to rate this solution. thanks

Testimonial: "appreciate your feedback soo much.i was afraid that i have to go under the dash on the inside of the car but your instructions are pretty simple.thk u"
SOURCE: I am trying to replace
the brake pedal would not ned to be removed to change this out. when you lay under the steeering column, you would be able to see the coneting rod..it is held on with a c clip. once the clip is removed you can then slide the rod of and pull it out throgh the fire wall (of course after master is out of the way...be suure to not turn the rod on booster as many have adjustable lenght rods that if out of adjustment can apply your brakes without physicaly applying the brake pedal...hope this helps

you have air in the brake system.any time you remove any parts like master cylinder,brake calipers or wheel cylinders or disconnect brake lines or hoses. the brake system has to be bled.the ford dealership has to bleed brake system using a drb 2 scanner and pressure bleeder.dont drive vechicle.have towed to dealership.

SOURCE: brake booster removal from 1995
You might be able to unbolt the master cylinder from the front of the booster and move it out of the way without taking any of the brake lines off. If not then just remember your gonna have to bleed the brakes after your done. the booster is held on by four nuts that are screwed onto studs that will stick out of the firewall on the INSIDE of the cab. Look high and behind the brake pedal. Once the four nuts are out and the pedal is disconnnected, the booster will pull out from the engine side.
