Hi all I’ve been searching for any tutorials in adjusting the parking brake for the 2011 Mustang GT. Can’t seem to find anything.

My brake pulls all the way up but the car will still drift. I know I can put it in gear but if I want to idle the manual in neutral I can’t since it drifts.

I seen a video where you go into the hand break area but is there an adjustment that is made at the calipers or cable under the car itself?

I use the hand break every time I stop the car and was told it self adjusts but doesn’t seem to?

Any suggestions and or links to tackle this?

Open your console lid and inside you'll find a rectangle shaped access plug that will pop out. This gives you access to the adjustment point of the e-brake cable. Go to you tube and you will find many helpful tips on how to tighten the cable. Very easy to over tighten your e-brake so as to have it drag. Go easy. You can always tighten it more if you think you want more. Happy Trails.

Repeted pulls on the lever, can sometimes help the self adjusting mechanism move again in the rear brakes. It's common that it seizes. Otherwise adjust with care from the console
