Before we go any further. You need to be sure that the car cannot move out of gear. You must chock the tires, be sure you are on level ground, and are in no danger of moving while you are performing this installation.

Locate the emergency brake. We want to position the brake handle in a vertical position. This is accomplished by using a flat head screwdriver that is at least 6" in length. Separate the rubber flaps and you will see a metal piece that appears gold in color. That is called the "pawl."

You will need to slide the edge of the flat head screwdriver in between the pawl and cam. Once you have the screw driver between them, the handle easily slides up to a 90 degree position.
