I started to remove this metel shield from around the ECU/Air pump/Batter jumper terminal area. Most was fine to remove but it sure looks like the brake line needs to be disconnected at the wheel well end to have enough slack in the brake line to get the metal panel out. Am I missing something?

[QUOTE=Randy Forbes;5703832]For (MUCH) greater access, I remove the sheetmetal barrier around the electrical box. This takes about 10-15 minutes to do (and a similar amount of time to replace) but it is well worth the trouble. Don't get me wrong, you'll still have scraped up arms, but at least you'll be able to get your arm in there.
