Does anybody know what parts/part numbers would be required to hook up the e-brake when you do a swap to SVT rear stuff from a stock rear drum setup? I have been trying to find this for quite some time with no success.
Thanks.

You will need the same cable as the normal focus models with rear disk setups. I wouldn't know the US part numbers though, sorry. Oh and you obviously need both sides. Might be worth having a look at a breakers yard.

no, due to the way the e-brake cable runs on the SVT setup. its shorter then the stock cable.

you need an SVT ebrake handle and it should come with the short piece that mates up to the rest of the cable.

it also has a different connector on it.

I have converted to st170 brakes (svt) and the hand brake cable is of a longer length than those cars with drums. As i had rear disks already the cable was the same length as the st ones. The hand brake handle makes no odds you shouldn't need to change it unless you prefer the leather one on the svt.
