Some vehicles may have a "rubbing" noise coming from underneath the vehicle. This may be due to the parking brake cable tunnel bracket deflecting the parking brake cable conduits into the driveshaft.
Install two (2) rivets into the tunnel bracket to prevent deflection. Also, install a support bracket to support the parking brake cable conduits. Refer to the following Service Procedure for details.
Place the parking brake control in the released position.
Raise the vehicle by referring to the appropriate Mustang Service Manual, Section 00-02.
Remove the driveshaft by referring to the Service Manual, Section 05-01.
Disconnect the parking brake cable from parking brake control lever, the equalizer from the rear brake cables, and the rear brake cable conduits from tunnel bracket. Refer to the Service Manual, Section 06-05.
Inspect and replace brake cables if rub-through on the cable conduits is apparent.
Hammer the parking brake cable bracket back to its original position.
DO NOT USE HEAT ON FLOOR PAN.
Drill two (2) 5.0mm holes per Figure 1.
Figure 1 - Article 98-5A-8
THE HOLES MUST PASS THROUGH THE CENTER CONSOLE SUPPORT, FLOOR PAN, AND PARKING BRAKE CABLE BRACKET.
CARE MUST BE TAKEN WHEN DRILLING TO AVOID SNAGGING THE INTERIOR CARPETING ABOVE THE HOLES. USE A DRILL DEPTH LIMITER TO RESTRICT ITS PENETRATION TO 6mm (1/4").
Install two (2) 3/16" Rivets (N808594-S100) per Figure 1.
Drill one (1) 5.0mm hole approximately 146mm (5.75") rearward of the parking brake cable bracket centered above where the driveshaft would be located. Refer to Figure 1 for rivet hole location.
Reinstall parking brake cable and equalizer.
With the brake cable conduits in position, place the Support Bracket (F5ZZ-2B622-AC) over the brake cable conduits and Rivet (353016-S) it to floor pan, refer to Figure 1.
