Emergency Brake Pedal Assembly

Has anyone ever had one of these break on them?

Mine snapped this weekend at the boat ramp (luckily I hadn't gotten all the way out yet and I could slam on the brakes otherwise I would have most likely lost the truck).

The dealership wants 675 to replace the assembly (parts is only 180), and that seems astronomical?

Has anyone ever replaced one, have any thoughts or tips?

It is not something that I have done, but it can't be that hard. Unless your time is worth more to you than the money it will cost to have the dealership do it, I would do it myself. Grab a chilton's manual and google and you will be well on your way.

dually club member.. Why replace 5 tires when you can replace seven? I like my training wheels...

I've got a manual, and have never paid anyone to do anything in my life, but was pressed for time, so thought I'd give the dealership a chance to earn their keep.

Either way though my money is more important than my time so I am going to do it myself. Im more pissed now that the dealership wants to charge me 675 dollars to do it. That seemed ridiculous....

I am the same way. I have the time, so why not try to do the work first...

A mechanic friend of mine replaces at least six or eight of these pedals per year on the tow trucks he works on.

He tells me that most of the problem can be eliminated by putting your foot on the pedal when releasing it, and let the pedal up slowly.

My fault - powerstrokeshop.com

Assuming my parts show up, and he had them in his hand as we confirmed things, I thought the service was fantastic.
