Ford Mustang 1994-1998 Repair Guide

Alternate Method-T-Hook


See Figure 1

If a flatbed is unavailable, your car (unless it is a Cobra) can be towed using a T-hook wrecker. In this case, it is best to tow from the rear, with the rear wheels off the ground, as this will prevent wear and tear on the drive train. Make sure the transmission is in N (Neutral) and that the parking brake is released. Tow vehicle speed should not exceed 35 mph (56 km/h) when using this method.

When necessary, you can tow using the T-hook in the front, with the rear wheels on the ground, BUT all of the previous conditions for rear towing are applicable AND the total distance towed should NOT EXCEED 50 miles (80 km). Otherwise, transmission damage may occur unless the driveshaft is removed.
