I was wondering...
Is there some kind of trick to putting on an Emergency Brake Pedal Pad?

I am using a new but oem pad.
Struggle as I may, I could only get it half on.

Next, I plan on replacing the Brake Pedal Pad.

e-brake pad installation

I had the same problem. Try these steps: Depress the brake into the "on' position..that is, down. Put a little bit of gel handsoap from a pump bottle or some dish detergent on the back of the new pad and around the lipped edges. Slide the pad on from the bottom up as far as it will go easily, then curl the top lip back towards you and push firmly upwards on the whole thing. It should then slip on and the detergent will dry up and flake away in a few days. Good luck.

Steve...use a bigger hammer! :p If I remember correctly your missing your rad. overflow tank, I 've got a spare I was gonna throw your way, even picked up the correct bolts at the salvage yard a couple weeks ago. Give me a hollar this weekend and I'll help you with that pesky pad install....
