    Hey
    You dont have to remove the rod from the pin . the switch slips over it on the slotted side and the side with the hole goes over the pin and then the clip Good luck its tight but you can do it

    i know it is kinda like 20-20 hindsight but... i found that when i change out the master i don't even take the rod off the brake pedal lever. after disconnecting the brake lines from the master, and after removine the nuts that hold it to the firewall, i just give a strong YANK on the master and out she comes... rod stays in the car. new master is installed in reverse order.:2cents:
