Bear with me, this was 5 yrs ago...
Seems that there is a nut right behind (firewall side) the u-bolt. If I'm 
remembering right, put something in the U to hold it, or leave it on the 
pedal, loosen the nut, then the U-bolt _should_ turn free of the rod.
As far as the other end. I really don't remember. 

Anybody BTDT, or have a bentley handy????
