Ok, I just did this recently. The how-to is helpful, but I would also drop the lower trim panel. The hood release is held on w/ a nut and the OBD port can be popped out of its hole by nudging it past the little hook holding it in (a screwdriver inserted beside the little hook/tab works nice). I would remove the battery and battery box in the engine bay as well, since it makes bleeding the system much easier. The how to claims 1.5 hrs, but make sure you have 3-4 hours free, in case it takes you as long as it took me. I can't remember the price offhand, but the master cylinder is available thru the dealer and aftermarket parts stores. I don't think the price of the part was outrageously expensive or anything.

Got mine though a local Ford dealer for about 60$ including tax i think. They usually have one in stock since it is a common thing to be replaced. The guy at the counter said the one I bought just came in and has sold three in the week prior. I was pretty sad that this is such a common problem yet it hasn't been made a recall by ford..tisk tisk..
