Question about 2003 Chevrolet Blazer
It's a manual transmission so it's an important feature, lol. The parking brake holds the truck in place if I keep my foot on it, but the mechanism that holds the pedal to the floor is busted or something. Was hoping you could tell me about this mechanism. Thank you very much.
My '03 S10 with manual transmission had the parking mechanism fail. I could push the parking brake pedal to the floor and it would not lock in place. To take out this mechanism, pull the plastic sidewall off next to the parking pedal, then unscrew the plastic panel underneath the dash, which is above the gas and brake pedals. The front plastic panel can remain in place. The parking mechanism is held to the sidewall by two lower hex head screws (easy to take out) and one above the pedal arm (this takes patience to remove). Feel around for this upper nut - it's there. I used a small extension on my ratchet with a deep wall socket. The upper nut is attached to a stud and this will align the parking mechanism when putting it back on. Once the mechanism is out, take off the parking and brake release cables, the parking brake wire connection, and you're free to see if it can be repaired. The mechanism on my S10 had one end of the spring off to the side, and once put back into place, the repair was made. Good luck!

I have the same problem, and have a solution. what is wrong is, there is a tooth that locks into a half moon gear in your break assembly.and that tooth is broken. since the assembly is completely riveted together. you cannot "fix" it what you have to do is take out the old assembly and replace it with a new one, now be carefull taking out the old pedal there are several vital wires in your way and it is difficult to even see let alone remove the top nut. after removing the pedal. there is another ordeal. finding a replacement. im not one for paying retail price so i checked out a junk yard.Problem. there is a similar assembly on older models (the ones you see in junk yards) its simmilar but will not work. i am hoping to find someone on craigslist parting out a late model S10
i hope this is helpfull
in the mean time, leave your truck in gear, first or reverse(depending on the angle that you parked), i have the same problem, mine is a manule as well
