    Mother of God, this is hands down the most annoying problem this car has. Ever since I got it, I've had to deal with it. I thought I had it taken care of which gave me peace of mind for a couple of months until I looked at the big chrome bumper of the truck behind me today at a red light and...

    Hey guys, I have a 2004 GT automatic. I just recently had new pads and rotors replaced on all four wheels. I did this because there was a high pitched squeel coming from the right rear wheel. There was also a type of grinding felt in the brake pedal right before I come to a complete stop...

    I'm not entirely sure how long this has been going on, but my parking brake has issues. Either the springs aren't strong enough, or the cable is stuck, but the driver's side brake seems to stay almost all the way engaged. The other side works fine, but is not enough to actually hold the car. So...

    It's been a while since I've been on here. I purchased a 2001 Mustang GT some months back. The third brake light (center brake light on the trunk lid) is NOT working now. It worked when I purchased it. When I applied the brakes, it would blink for about 5 seconds and then stay on. I'm taking...

    Well it seems that she's done it again... My 1983 GLX has had this problem on and off for the last couple of years, and I think I'm at the end of my rope here... The problem is that the left brake light sometimes doesn't work. The right one always works, and I don't have a 3rd LED light. I...

    I haven't heard of this really happening to someone else but the other day when I tried to put on my parking brake, the metal snapped that the bolt was screwed into. My mustang has standard tranny so I sort of need the parking brake. Will the handle not being bolted down cause any damage if I...

    Hi there, I'm storing my 1968 289 Coupe Sprint B Mustang for several years (unfortunately this had to be done, have to wait for a while before I can fully enjoy this gem again!...) The most important thing I haven't succeeded in doing yet to make sure this baby will be relatively easy to get...

    Hey guys, I just bought my first Mustang, and I love it. Only issue is when I'm trying to put the top up or down I have to pull the parking brake multiple times. Not only is this inconvenient, but I'm worried about the parking brake cable as well. I'm not sure if it's the sensor (which I cannot...

    So I recently put stoptech crossdrilled rotors on my mustang along with some stoptech brake pads. After lubing up all of the slide pins, pushing in all of the pistons, etc. I took it for a test drive. Halfway through the test drive i noticed that the engine sounded like it had stress on it when...

    First off, I should say that I am doing the brakes on a 1968 Falcon and not a Mustang, but I figure they should use the same stock drum brake setup and there are no good (active) Falcon forums. That said, I need new shoes on my front drum brakes and decided to overhaul the entire drum brake...

    I have a 1996 Mustang V6 and the ABS light has been on for a VERY long time now. My dad and i replaced the brake pads a while back. Other than that, theres nothing we've done to the brake system.

    So my brake drums were way way way out of spec and the other day I was driving and the outside of the band broke loose frome the plate on the drum. Anyways I went and bought new drums and were replacing them. My question now is why does it vibrate? I lined up the hub, and pressed the studs in...

    Hey Gurus and Techies, I have been considering to upgrade a 1965 Coupe to power drum brakes. I am still in the process of restoring and have not got to the undercarriage yet. Does the engine supply enough vacuum for that? It is still in stock condtion except for A/C was added. Also...

    I have a 1996 V6. If you do not know, it comes stock with a cheap, crappy piece of rubber to serve as the emergency brake boot. It looks horrible, it's cheap, and mine is ripped, so you can see down into the depths of my car. Does anyone know of where I can find a leather or vinyl one? I have...

    Hi All, I need some advice from brake experts here. I had replaced my pads earlier, but then found a few weeks later that my front drivers side pads are thinner and there's excessive brake dust on that side. So I replaced the pads again and lubricated the slide pins but now that doesn't seem to...
