Question about 2003 Saturn ION
Im trying to replace my rear shoes on my 03 saturn ion. i took the old shoes off but these ones are different there is no e clip on the shoes to connect to the ebrake cable. i had to remove the e brake cable from the old shoe. now how do i put the e brake cable back on the new one because theres a spring around it. i tried pulling the spring back and connecting the cable to shoe but that didnt work. is there some kind of trick to do this or what?
Had the same problem and had to pull spring back, using two vise grips in order to do it. Then the brake cable will slip into place if you move the lever until the cable goes into the open part of the attachment on the bottom of the lever. Then turn or twist the brake shoe until the cable end fits properly.
Make sure to examine and think about which way to insert the cable end so that it is in properly to pull the lever.
