Problem removing brake booster of 98 Dodge. Now with pictures! Sign In

1998 Dodge Durango 5.2L 80,000 miles

After multiple troubleshooting, I found out the brake booster arm rusted to the brake pedal. My father had me cut off the arm a couple inches from the connection. In attempt to move it enough so to loosen the rust and remove it.
Questions:
How does the booster connect to the pedal. It looks like a pin of some sorts, but still confused as heck to how.
How easy should the brake pedal depress and release. Im afraid the brake pedal hinges are also semi rusted.
And of course, what would your actions be to remove the booster arm. Keep in mind I need to attach a duplicate booster that I bought.
Thank you much.

pics aren't coming up. Try using photobucket. That site has good results on this one.

There should have been a clip on it. Once the clip is removed the rod slides off. You may need to put some penetrating oil on and and see if you can work it off.

Yes, there was a pathetic excuse for a clip on the end of the pin. So the arm should slide off the pin then?

I would try to get it to rotate first and then get it lubed up good and it should slide off the pin.
