  1. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    YEP! The weld failed badly while I was driving on the freeway a couple weeks ago, and it wasn't covered by any. warranty.
  2. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    My car is finally driving again!! Got the pedal assembly back in and the Steeda clutch lines installed last night, pumped the pedal too many times between today and yesterday, and the difference in clutch feel is night and day! I wouldn't ever do this job again, but it was worth it ONCE for...
  3. Higher mileage (50k+ miles) manual cars, check your clutch pedals

    Got the assembly back in with some good friends last night. It actually went in easier than taking it out. All that’s left is the clutch line, finding the other half of my assist spring perch, and bleeding it and we should be good to go! Total time just doing disassembly and reassembly was...
  4. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    This is what I did over the weekend, after learning the pedal assembly isn't covered by any warranty and costs $$$$ to replace. I pulled it out myself (PITA and the worst thing I've done on this car) and had it welded back together better than how it left the factory. Once my Steeda clutch line...
  5. Higher mileage (50k+ miles) manual cars, check your clutch pedals

    It wasn't covered by any warranty, so I pulled the assembly (10/10 it was the worst thing I've done on an S550), and had it welded and reinforced. Ordered the Steeda clutch line since I'm already in there and I'm waiting for that before I put it all back together.
  6. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    The only warning I had before it went was creaking/squeaking sound for a month or two before after thinking it was the lower seat cushion and adjusting my position many times, it stopped. Then it went on the freeway and stopped me from changing gears twice the of the way home.
  7. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Had to drop my clutch brake/pedal assembly after learning it's not covered by any warranty to re-weld and hopefully reinforce it tomorrow.
  8. Higher mileage (50k+ miles) manual cars, check your clutch pedals

    Mine failed today on the freeway and intermittently prevented me from changing gear all the way home from work and to the dealer. Mine is just under 60k miles, and I had intermittent creaking sounds that I thought were coming from my seat, as the changing my position seemed to correspond with it...
  9. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Replaced my clutch position/starter switch and backup camera. Only the former switch was fixed, and I suspect that my camera wiring is damaged somewhere along its length. The camera needed to be replaced because of a scratch on the lens, but not having it sorted out after a couple months is...
  10. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Just checked today. The connector is installed properly. I disconnected and reconnected it as well with no change. I really don't wanna have to inspect the wiring, but I think that's logical my next step, short of replacing the camera itself. I didn't know there was a recall for the backup...
  11. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    The decklid is the MP Concepts gloss black decklid you can get on American Muscle (I got mine on Amazon though). The decal is this one I got from LMR...
  12. How to adjust your parking brake

    So the sliding portion of the caliper was replaced along with the passenger side cable. I was told that when the brakes were replaced, the pistons weren't correctly replaced. From that, I assume constant use of the parking brake with this in mind led to my issue. My parking brake works like new...
  13. Rear View Camera Not Available

    Well this is convenient! Mine worked fine until I installed a new decklid panel tonight. I've got a blue screen when I put it in reverse now. It first happened when I plugged the camera back in sans panel to check if it was still fine. I then disconnected and reconnected it and it was working...
  14. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Installed my new decklid (fox body-style "GT" decal and PPF'd). But now my backup camera doesn't work, and I'm left with a blue screen whenever I put it in reverse.
  15. How to adjust your parking brake

    I'll let you all know tomorrow once I've picked the car up.
  16. How to adjust your parking brake

    The problem is with both rear calipers in my case, and I snapped the passenger side cable. All are being replaced to the tune of around $800. Thankfully I saved the original cables, so the original passenger is going back in.
  17. How to adjust your parking brake

    Mine didn't budge at all from what we could see. I'll absolutely keep you all posted on what the dealer says. I should hopefully hear back sometime tomorrow.
  18. How to adjust your parking brake

    Well my parking brake broke this afternoon, so now it’s at the dealer and hopefully they’ll fix my headache for good, even if I won’t like how much it’ll cost. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ A friend and I were inspecting the lever arms that actuate the pistons via the handbrake earlier and something went POP/SNAP...
  19. How to adjust your parking brake

    I replaced and readjusted my cables earlier today, and I still can't get my parking brake to even hold the car on the slightest incline. The pads look more than adequate and the handle is nice and tight; maybe a bit too tight for my liking. What else is there I can do before I've gotta have the...
  20. What did you do to your S550 Mustang today?!

    Finally swapped in the Renegade Euro lights from CJPP and I LOVE it!
