    Ive been searching high and low for the part number of the boot/grommet that mounts on the back of the rear drum brake housing and allows the parking brake to pass through...

    Anyone have a source for it?

    i tried the local dealer, they have no interest in helping... what getting me is i can't even Google the parts diagram anymore... it's like they have been scrubbed from the web...

    It would be helpful if you posted a picture of something close to it.

    I've noticed this as well (in my case with Ariens lawn mowers). It could be that the Ford OEM parts sellers deleted their older parts diagrams, and everyone else had merely linked to that.

    It's unfortunate, since these OEM diagrams are the best reference for part numbers.

    I have gotten parts f0r my Escorts from Mazda, long after they were 'discontinued' by Ford. the web site is jimellismazdaparts(dot)com.
    You have to put in a Mazda model and year, i.e. like a 94 protege, then poke around in the listing for rear brake parts, and eventually get to a part diagram. Once the digram is expanded it seem there is a part GJ2126813 its called a boot', two are needed, and the price is $6.68 each. Sad to say, on most of my Escorts those boots didnt get put back on, because its not an easy 'install'.

    That's sure true about the Mazda dealer.
    I replaced the pedal pads on my car, they were less than half the price from Mazda as from Ford.

    I did buy a set from both dealers at the same time because I was also fixing up a B2200, and when I got the parts in hand discovered they were identical, down to mould numbers and parting lines.

    I actually needed a "new" back plate because both bolts holding the parking brake cable snapped off. (me being impatient) Tapped one out but the other was toast. The bracket on the back plate is welded to the plate (of course). Anyway, I pulled apart one from the bone yard and it had the e-brake lever/paw and boot still on it. Still got the car?
