06 mustang v6 std, frozen emerg brake

well i just read a thread from the gt guys from last december that had the same problem. this morning i get a call from my g/f at work, her e brake was froze up. last night i pulled her car in and set the brake. so i`m thinking i must have reefed on it too much. her 06, 20,000 has warrenty still so they towed her car in. tuns out the same boot issue lets water into the cables and this morning was so cold they froze. we just picked the car back up for the weekend since they had to order some then the dealer is gonna put new cables on it. i dont think it was a recall, but there is a tsb on it i think. so now i`m thinking, dang, my 05 has 50,000 on it and no warrenty. looks like i should have the same problem this winter.

Maybe, maybe not. I haven't had that happen yet in 3 winters so far. But then again, I rarely use the E brake.

They changed the boot design so they aren't as susceptible to rot. I had mine replaced after getting stuck at work a couple of years ago.

hey stlwagon, you were in that post from last year. so is this the same problem as the gt`s? same cables? even though her car is newer than mine, i might be ok. i should be able to examine the boots for rotting and thats the key? now that winter is setting in, maybe everyone should check this out. getting stranded is no fun. i still think something like the ebrake should be used often to keep it working right. not good to let alot of things sit for too long without being used.

E-Brake should be used to keep working free.You can also put lub(WD-40,etc.)on cables to keep free.I've had cars through the years that would freeze up.It's not only the Mustangs.Water and cold temps. don't mix well.

my g/f gets her cables on the 06 replaced this fri under warrenty. those rubber boots are crap. my 05 they are all cracked up. i just shot a bunch of oil into mine last weekend, but i`ll have to replace them sooner or later. thats a shame cause the cables are ok, its just the rubber boots that are shot. i guess they are around 65.00 each for the cables.
