    Has Anybody got any recommendations/ ideas for a electronic handbrake conversion??

    My wife is only 5' and has trouble reaching and releasing on hills - so to speak!

    Don't know about electronic but there are mechanical extenders to make them easier to use. My Mrs is also vertically challenged but her problem is reaching the pedals (van is Mercedes, she could reach on the last Fiat)

    Thanks. I think I would go the whole hog and try and do it electrically.

    I had to force the Wife to test drive to make sure she could reach the pedals. She normally has that problem - but not on the Ford Transit Base
