Emergency brake release lever bracket fell from connection to plastic dash. Ford will split the $2000 cost 50/50 to repair since no recall at this time. Feel poor design attaching mechanism to plastic dash instead of metal bracket. When used currently, must be careful to not let release get stuck under dash making it very difficult to retrieve and release the lever.
