My handbrake has been slipping. Sometimes, it wouldn't hold the car in a stationary position. Other times, it would slip into high when I was driving in low or reverse.
Thankfully, I found the tip/solution in the MTFCA forum. The link below describes using a spring to make the parking brake engage and stay engaged! Today, my son and I decided to give it a try and Shazam! It worked like a charm. Now the parking brake engages and stays engaged until it is supposed to disengage. No more unexpected slipping into gear.
Thanks to the forum for the great tip/solution.
I took this picture from this forum. I don't know who to thank.
I also seen someone on here make a wood block the fit in the floorboard cut out with another piece on top to make a flange. They said the used it in parades. A nice non permanent solution IMO.
The hinge is good for a driver---might do that on my doodle bug. But all in all, replacing the pawl and quadrant and adding the accessory spring are the real solutions.
