  1. 1968 Mustang Fastback Parking brake assembly Installation?

    Classic Tech
    Ok so a while ago I picked up a 1968 fastback. The previous owner (or somebody) didn't like the parking brake so the whole assembly and cables were removed. I managed to pick up an aftermarket parking brake assembly and all the linkages for a V8 from CJ's. I've seen plenty of undercarriage...

    V6 Tech
    Hello. Im new to the forums so hello! :yelpleased: On my 2001 Mustang I am trying to figure out how to adjust the parking brake.

  3. 2009 GT parking brake won't stay up

    2005-2010 Mustang GT Tech
    First, let's get all the viagra jokes out of our systems so we can get down to business..haha! So since I got my mustang back in 2009 the ebrake has been a bit picky. If you didn't pull it up hard, after a few seconds it would slip back down to where it rests when it is off. This would mean...

    2005-2010 V6 Mustang Tech
    So, I'm new to all this. I just got (my first car) a 2005 Mustang V6. Nothing fancy, but by far the nicest car at my school. I love cars, and I know a little about them, but not a lot.

  6. 1996 Mustang V6 E Brake Boot

    V6 Tech
    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...

    So a few months ago my emergency brake cable snapped and I never go around to fixing it. I did tie up the cable and removed that big metal piece that holds the cable in place. So I ordered the part it should be here soon. I guess my main question is how do I go about doing this? Does anyone...
