Clutch interlock

I have a 99' B2500, trying to change the clutch interlock switch, I have the new one with the new pushrod assembly, question is - How do you get the rod out of mc? The end of the rod is machined on the end and looks like there's some sorta keeper that keeps it in there. I cant find a button or screw thats holding it. It's hard getting both hands up there to do anything. I've tryed a pair of pliers and pulling it out but seems like I'm gonna destroy something, I must be missing something here, Thanks any input would be appec.
Charlie

There's a pin with a clip that connects the rod to the switch assembly.

From the /99 Ford manual:

Pedal and Bracket ŚManual Transmission

Removal

1. Disconnect the brake master cylinder push rod.

- Remove the hairpin clip.
- Separate the stoplight switch and the brake booster push rod from the brake pedal pin.
- Remove the brake booster push rod bushing.

NOTE: Retain the bushing and hairpin clip. They will be required for installation.

2. .........

Thanks, maybe I'm not conveying the problem correctly. The push rod on the clutch pedal is what I can't seperate. I have it off the pedal itself, which is just an eye with a plastic snap on fitting, the other end is a spring loaded plastic switch with a wire connector that slides over the clutch mc push rod. That mates up with a bracket under the dash where I guess is a part of the mc itself, it goes thru the firewall on one end the other end terminates at the bracket. The bracket has a square hole, prob. an 1''X1'' the plastic piece is shaped the same, goes thru the opening then turned slightly to keep it secure. This is driving me nuts, I can usually figure this kinda crap out. Thanks.

For those with B series trucks that have to replace this part, buy the OE part so you don't have to go thru what I did. I called a dealer and talked to a technician he said to hook it back up to the pedal pull back real hard and it snaps out, only he didn't tell me theres a snap ring that holds it in there too. It came out bent snap ring and all. Put it back together, truck starts fine. Just can't get the snap ring back on, even with offset pliers. Hard working with just 1 hand, unless I take the seat out, theres no way of working with 2. The OE part is slotted and will slide off the rod without removing the rod from the mc. Aftermarket switches come with a new pushrod and have to slide off the end of the rod. Of course I find this out after the fact. Just posting this to maybe save someone else the frustration.
