While you might not worry about your parking brake as much as your pads and rotors, it’s a very important system. If you’ve ever experienced a parking brake cable snapping, you know it’s a component that needs immediate replacement. Any brake parts that fail should be swapped for a high-quality replacement as soon as possible.
Fortunately, parking brake components are generally inexpensive and simple to install. You can find parking brake lever return springs, links, retaining clips, adjusting rods, idlers, equalizers, and any other hardware you need. You can also get a new parking brake cable or an entire parking brake assembly.
Restoring your Mustang's interior will likely include swapping out the parking brake handle. If yours is worn out or missing, there are direct-fit replacements available. At the same time, it’s also worth looking at upgrading and revitalizing your Mustang’s console area.
