Pretty simple with a few simple hand tools. It helps if you are a contorsionist (sp?).

Buy a new one from Ford and take it from there. I found the trickiest part was getting the rubber grommet part seated properly in the sleeve in the floor.

Have a go, not worth paying someone else to do it.

How many kms on your cables? On both my EA and ED they both went at ~150k kms

Martin, got about 250,000k's from the handbrake cable (the front bit from the handbrake to the adjuster) in an EA wagon I owned.
