PARKING BRAKE PEDAL REPAIR OR REPLACE?

One day I went to engage my parking brake and when it started put tension on the parking brake cable, the pedal just slammed to the floor. Now the pedal does not put enough tension on the cable to engage the parking brake,also the pedal will not detract on its on when the release is pulled and the pedal is very loose. The dealership says the parking brake pedal assembly needs to be replaced $$$. However, it looks like maybe something could be tightened, and if not, I might try to replace it myself. Anyone experience a similar problem or has tips?


Thanks

Alright this happened to me-

The wire that runs through a slot in the parking brake unit has most likely split the unit in two. When this happened to me I removed the whole system and you will see that there are a few main pieces to the component. Take it apart and remove the cable from in between them and drill some holes through the plates to keep it together tightly. I know this is not exactly detailed, but it was awhile ago. I expierienced the EXACT same symptoms as you. Dealership wanted big $$$, and this only cost me 45 minutes and some screws. Oh, but now the parking brake light does not work on the dash--- but hey, at least the brake itself works, right?

That sounds like it might just work. I will consider doing that if it will solve my problem. Now on the dash parking brake light/indicator, there is a small push button toward the top of the unit that the pedal arm presses when the parking brake is disengaged,I think. That could be your problem, so I am thinking maybe your repair may not allow the pedal to fully rise and/or disengage????


Thanks for the good idea crb_ bergstrom

Replace the cables, it's really easy. Just get oem parts.

I snapped mine while depressing and went to napa and got all the parts. What a mistake. I went back and forth a half a dozen times and finally got oem Ford parts. Once I got the right parts it was a 30 minute job.

The cable is undamaged and is still entacted, the problem is with parking brake pedal assembly itself.


Thanks CNC

I assume that you need a new "Parking Brake Control" which costs $77.50 at Ed's...
