I just swapped in the clutch and brake pedals from a 1990 ford ranger into my 1994 ford explorer. They swapped easily and I did not remove the dash to install it in my explorer.
Remove the e-clip

Here is how you remove the auto pedal. It is easier to show how it is done on the steering column support that I had out of the 90 ranger than it would have been trying to take pictures from underneath the dash out of my 94 explorer

Slide the pin out.

I swapped this plastic clip over to my manual brake pedal... It operates a switch.

A comparison shot of the automatic pivot pin compared to the pin that is attached to the clutch pedal. Same length.

There is enough room to slide that shaft(that pedals ride on) out in the car?
Yes. You will have to unbolt the parking brake pedal and move it out of the way for room to do it. It's a tight fit getting that shaft in and out, but it's doable.
