How can I realse emergency brake if cable cutting for tahoe 2009

With an assistant, release the parking brake cable tension by pulling straight back on the intermediate cable at the cable-to-cable union until the parking brake control sector (of the brake pedal) rotates to a stop. then insert a 4mm retainer pin in the parking brake control pedal to keep it from retracting on you.
Disconnect the cable running from the brake pedal to the cable-to-cable union underneath the car.
Then replace the damaged or severed cable that controls either the left or right rear parking brake shoes.

How to change parking brakes on 2003 dodge ram

  • 1 Determine which type of emergency brakes your Dodge Ram will need. Emergency brakes typically function by activating the regular braking system on the driving wheels. The emergency brakes for the Dodge Ram have used rear disc brakes since 2001.
  • 2 Release the parking brake pedal completely and raise your vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel with a socket wrench and disconnect the brake caliper from the caliper adapter. Slide the rotor from the axle shaft.
  • 3 Install the new brake rotor onto the axle shaft and complete the installation by reversing the removal steps.
  • 4 Tighten the wheel mounting nuts in the proper sequence with a torque wrench until the nuts are torqued to 47.5 foot/pounds Repeat the tightening sequence to torque the nuts to 95 foot/pounds.
  • 5 Apply and release the park brake pedal to seat and adjust the parking brake cables. Road test the vehicle to ensure the vehicle's brake system is functioning.
  • 6 Place tool C-3919 or the equivalent over the park brake shoes and use the star wheel adjuster to lower the park brake shoes until the lining just touches the jaws on the tool.

    Emergency brake adjustment

    This depends on which cable is hanging down. There are several cables in the assembly. One cable comes from the parking brake assembly under the Drivers' dash. It joins the rear cable assembly that goes to each rear wheel. Some cars have 2 separate rear wheel cables and others have a Y assembly that has to be replaced as 1 part.

    There can be an adjustment rod where the front cable meets the rear assembly. Some of the parking brake reels under the dash are suppose to reel in extra slack.

    Often if the rear Emergency brakes are worn out, there will be slack in the assembly.

    I had an emergency brake cable snap somewhere (emergency brake cable goes to floor with no resistance). How do I tell where the broken cable is?

    The cable runs under the car on the drivers side. if it broke under there it would be hanging down some. Most likely it broke at the foot pedal. There is a metal stud that is molded on the end of the cable and is prong to break first.

    My axel bearing was replaced last week now my emergency parking break light will not go off and my breaks are hard as a rock i can push and push very hard and the pedal barly moves and the kia barely slows...

    I suspect your problem has nothing to do with the rear bearings, it sound most likely that your vacume pipe to your booster is off or maybe sucking air, near the bottle where you top up the brake fluid there is a big black/gold round thing (Booster) up against the car out of this there is a pipe usually about as thick as your thumb that goes to the intake manifold. You should be able to see where it belongs to go if it has come off.

    in the case of rear disk brakes, the cable needs adjusting or the emergency brake shoes need replacing. the cable could be broken. with drum brakes, the shoes need adjusting

    Dragging rear disc brake

    Your brake caliper on this tire is likely bad, but it could also be a problem with the emergency brake cable hanging up on this wheel.

    Were you using the emergency brake before the problem happened? If so, I'd maybe look more at the cable.
