Play in Brake Pedal

I have some play in my brake pedal, as in the pedal will "wiggle" a bit when you depress it. There's a bushing in the brake housing that the pedal attaches to (as I understand it). Does anyone know of this bushing I'm speaking of? If so, would you have any ideas where to source a replacement?

I'd like to know the fix for this too but I assume it's the bushing.

It is like a $10 part from rover last I checked. Keep it greased and it would have lasted for ever.

I just bought it and it was this way when i did my pre-purchase. Didn't think it was a big issue. Per my mechanic, this has long since been unavailable. I'll do some more digging.

Either I just never noticed or mine has worsened over the last 8 years to the point where I have noticed it.

I just looked. I believe we need two of these

Amazingly it's barely cheaper overseas

A bit steep. There is an access hole but I am not sure if you can pull the pedal without pulling the whole box, but if so it should be relatively easy to replace them. If you have to pull the box, I'm not sure it's worth the hassle

I found the whole brake pedal diagram on page 6 in the brake section of the RAVE manual. It looks fairly complex, but I'm going to show this to my mechanic to see if he thinks this will work, unless you want to be the guinea pig! Thanks for finding the bushings. It's not mission critical for me, but I've been knocking out some of these little annoyances and thought it might be time to try this one.

I can assure you that at the current rate I am tackling projects on the D90, this will not happen for me in a time frame measured in years

Is this an easy spot to grease?
