Parking brake return spring

Well do you guys have a picture of where this spring is supposed to connect to? It is the one that im guessing goes under the car.

Re: Parking brake return spring

spring?

on my parking brake, theres a cable that goes from the lever/handle to a flat piece of metal that rides underneath the transmission and fits into a slot, then theres another cabel that attaches to it and goes back to the brakes. I didnt remember a spring?

pics?

Re: Parking brake return spring

yes, there is a spring.
It attaches to the lever and them to the body... right where the uni body ends... there will be 2 small factory holes... the U at the end of the spring goes in one hole and then out the other, sort of locking it in place.

Re: Parking brake return spring

does it attach to the frame on the right side? Because the spring is way to long to attach to the left side frame rail. Also do you guys have a diagram. There was no parking brakes when we got the car and we dont know if we got it exactly right.

Re: Parking brake return spring

It attaches to the passenger side... look at where your UNIbody frameraile ends... there should be 2 small holes... unless it has been welded over with subframes.
The short end goes to the frame, and the long section goes to the lever...

Re: Parking brake return spring

interesting, never knew that. Mine had no spring in there when I bought it and works just fine, /shrug

Re: Parking brake return spring

Do a search on line for a pic. I recall Mustang Monthly web site had an exploded drawing of the e-brake...
