I am installing new brakes on my 2002 Mustang GT and had to replace passenger side caliper. I had to unhook the parking brake assembly and can not figure out the trick to get the spring back in place. Any tricks known?
i used pliers to squeeze the spring and put a nylon zip tie to hold the spring in that position. then used the pliers to squeeze it tighter and tightened the zip tie more until i could fit it in. one it was in place i cut the zip tie and it snapped right into place. i would be careful though cause when the zip tie is holding the spring there is a ton of potential energy being held up.
