Question about 1996 Honda Accord
How do I replace the parking brake cables on a 97 accord ex. Or about how much is the labor.
I know that it's not recommended to engage the parking brake prior to freezing temps because the cable can freeze (my '96 Accord ALWAYS does), but what makes cars more susceptible to this problem? I don't know anyone else that has issues with their parking brake cable freezing while it's engaged. My driveway is sloped, so I really need to use the p brake when I'm home.
Any thoughts, suggestions, and/or solutions would be greatly appreciated! :) Thanks!
If your not experience with brakes i won,t attempt replacing the cable. if you always have a freezing problem use a wheel chuck.
it,s a wedge u put against the tire so a car won,t roll

I used to drive tractor trailer, and when you park, the brakes engage and can freeze. The recommended soloution was to ride the brake pedal for a LITTLE while (1/2 mile or so) just before parking. This will heat up the brakes and dry them out preventing freezing about 99% of the time.
