I'm trying to replace the electrical switch that detects when the clutch is all the way out, on my 2005 base Vibe manual. (It is used by the cruise control to disengage whenever the clutch is not all the way out.)
However, I'm having a hell of a time. The outer nut (on the pedal side) is welded to and part of the bracket. The inner nut is nearly impossible to get anything on to turn it with, due to the sides of the bracket curling around on either side. Turning the body of the switch doesn't turn the threaded shaft that goes through the nuts; it just turns the body around the threaded shaft.
Has anyone successfully replaced this before? Or know what is needed to get around the nut?
