    Yes. I remove boot and post 24 is what you’ll see.

    For some reason I'm really struggling with this. I can't figure out how to get the backing fabric off the firewall to even see the bolts. There are some clear clips for the fabric, but then it's stapled around the steering shaft. Any hints or tips?

    I cleaned it up as best I could with a toothbrush and then used PB blaster and it's much better now, so If I can really get in there, maybe I can buy myself some time before dropping $300 on the new parts.

    IIRC, that cover under the brake pedal is stapled on. Start pulling gently and it should reveal itself. The staples will stay on the cover and you just push them back on when re-installing. Nothing will break easily if you take your time. Should come right off.
