    all you have to do is take the two nuts off for the master Cly. leave the line on, pull the master Cly off the studs and push it out of the way the lines will bend. but don't be rammy or you might fuck up the lines

    yep you have to move the master cylinder out of the way. do what s99ta described and you are good to go.

    no you just have to lossen the bolts to move it enough to get at the torx bolts.

    I actually replaced the torx with grade 8 bolts so the next time I will not need to mess with the master cylinder the next time I switch out the springs.
