    if you are trying to take out the cables to reuse them the best way is to remove them from the lever inside the car first and that will give you freeplay to remove them from the calipers easier

How to I repair my shift gears on my Chrysler 2007 Sebring? It's stuck in park.

I assume this is a floor shift,remove shifter knob, pry the trim around the shifter up to remove to get to the 2 screws there, in the storage compartment there may be 4 screws, pull Ebrake up as far as you can then rear of console upward over ebrake handle then back,remember you have to reverse what you just did to put it back together. If your after the shift cable try to pop it off the trans first to see if it can be moved out of park at the trans if so more likely is the cable if not you may have internal trans problem.

I need to tighten the emergency brake cable,where is the place where the brake cable is tightened?

Hello, There are really two things to do. There is an equalizer adjustment in the rearward part of the cable to make both rear wheels operate evenly. Put on the Ebrake lightly and see if both rear brakes are applying even pressure. Adjust until they are balanced.

Then push down fully on the Ebrake lever until tight, then push down, repeat and the Ebrake reel under the dash will draw in the extra slack.

sounds like the cable is frozen if you need to move now you can cut this cable to the wheel which will release the wheel dont recomend this but will do in a pinch

you will need to remove the wheels and drums check ebrake cables and brake shoes, make sure the arms are connected and not frozen and also brakes are adjusted correctly,most times its a bad cable or frozen hardware to the ebrake. hope this helps.

Cannot get the rear rotor off on the driver side, does the emergency cable assembly affect the removal of the rotor? it is very tight and will not budge

Yes it can affect removal. You may need to rachet the starwheel down to clear any grooving inside the Ebrake drum. Then try to loosen the Ebrake cables. If you have a threaded adjuster on the cable try to loosen it. Or try pulling slack from the underdash brake assembly where it comes out to join the main cable.

I sometimes have to use a visegrip plier and clamp what I have wrestled from the inside of the car. Be sure to use penetrating oil on the studholes and axlehole to free the rust from the rotor.

How to tighten uo the hand break cable on my bmw

You'll need to remove the center console that is over the hand brake. (screws and clips will most likely be hidden)
Once the console is off, you should be able to see two cables connecting to the base of the lever (one cable on the left of the lever and one to the right as these control the ebrake on their side of the car respectively.
Loosen the nut and you can shimmy the cable to tighten it.
Don't do it too tight or your ebrake may be engaged even though the lever is all the way down.
