Ford Mustang Owners Manual: Transporting the vehicle

If you need to have your vehicle towed, contact a professional towing service


If you need to have your vehicle towed, contact a professional towing service or, if you are a member of a roadside assistance program, your roadside assistance service provider.

We recommend the use of a wheel lift and dollies or flatbed equipment to tow your vehicle. Do not tow with a slingbelt. Ford Motor Company has not approved a slingbelt towing procedure. Vehicle damage may occur if towed incorrectly, or by any other means.

Ford Motor Company produces a towing manual for all authorized tow truck operators. Have your tow truck operator refer to this manual for proper hook-up and towing procedures for your vehicle.

The rear wheels (drive wheels) must be on a tow dolly when towing your vehicle from the front using wheel lift equipment. This prevents damage to the transmission.

The front wheels should be on a tow dolly when towing your vehicle from the rear using wheel lift equipment. This prevents damage to the front fascia.
