Estimated reading time: 2 min

This article will show installation tips for ADTR’s manual pedal assemblies.  These pedals will work for all 92-04 and 05-11 Crown Vic, Grand Marquis, Marauder and Town Cars.  If the car has the adjustable brake pedal option that will be lost with installation of these pedals. These are the revised pedals for additional strength.

1. Get rid of the spacer (pictured below) that goes between the pedal and firewall.  That is no longer used!  The new pedal assembly sits right up against the firewall.

This is what the firewall should look like before installation of the pedal assembly:

2.) There will be a stud on the firewall on 05+ cars that needs to be trimmed to allow the quadrant to move freely.  Cut off only what you need as the rest of the stud will be needed to mount the gas pedal relocation bracket.

This is what the pedal assembly should look like once installed

3.) There is an additional bolt on the upper bracket to the dash for added strength.  The pedal assembly when viewed straight on may look crooked but that is to conform to the slope of the dash.

(Note the brake pedal return spring on the original units will rest against the firewall.  Revised units have a pad welded on to hold the spring)

4.) Because of the design of the pedal, the brake light and cruise control switch are different.  Below are the wire colors of the switches in question.  You’ll need to cut the wires and put a female spade terminal end on and affix to the brake light/cruise switch.

92-04 Model Years

92-04 Brake light switch:

Green and Green w/ red stripe wires (doesn’t matter which wires go to which terminals but they need to go to the front most terminals on the new provided switch)

92-04 Cruise deactivation switch:
Orange and Green w/ red stripe wires (doesn’t matter which wires go to which terminals but they need to go to the rear most terminals and either get the front two or the rear two pairs)

05-11 Model Years

05-11 Brake light switch:

Red and Green w/ red stripe wires (doesn’t matter which wires go to which terminals but they need to go to the front most terminals on the new provided switch)

05-11 Cruise deactivation switch:
Pink and Orange wires (doesn’t matter which wires go to which terminals but they need to go to the rear most terminals and either get the front two or the rear two pairs)
