It really is not hard if it is the same as a 1994! I've had to change mine twice! All you do is unscrew the brake lines from the Master Cylinder, unplug the two sets of wires that are underneath the lines. Then unbolt the two bolts that are under the brake fluid reservoir. The unit should lift right up and off! Easy as 1-2-3!!
