You will need to first remove the snap ring from the back of your master cylinder and pull the piston and pushrod out of the back of the master cylinder. Once this is done, put the piston in a vice, and, with a hacksaw, cut a slot through the side of the piston parallel to and in line with the pushrod. When you get about half way through the piston, you will cut through the clip that secures the pushrod and you will be able to slide it out. However, if you are a novice I would suggest you to get assistance from a mechanic as to avoid damage to the piston. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) and one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

How do you remove the c clip on the lower rod to remove and replace the switch?
Pull cover, remove differential pinion shaft (aka center pin) sometimes the lockbolt is broken. If broken, it comes out easy enough with screw extractors, push axle in to expose c-clip, remove c-clip and pull axle out of housing. You can use some pliers to pull the clips out. For any further assistance please feel free to call 1-877-238-2623 and one of our representatives will gladly assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
