Question about 2002 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

Emergency brake cable snapped.

I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu 3.5 V-6. One day I stopped at my local home depot put on my parking brake and something snapped. I am assuming it is my cable as my parking brake pedal has no tension on it. Does anyone know how to fix this or if it is even the cable?

How can I tell if my emergency brake is damaged on my rear caliper on a 2005 Chevy Malibu maxx


Remove the wheel and have someone depress the e-brake while observing cable operation. The cable should pull the brake arm on the caliper and release the arm when the e-brake pedal is released.

most likely a local upholstery shop will be able to repair, but if you are handy several (black uv resistant) tie raps (cable ties) will do the trick too. Be creative the ties are very strong

The neutral safety switch will not let you crank the engine in anything but park and neutral. If something happens to the shift cable the trans may still be in drive.

Try using super penetrating oil like WD-40 or Liquid Wrench and spray this on the "exterior" of the cable in the vicinity of any "bends" in the cable near the wheel. After liberally applying the super penetrating oil, wait 10 minutes (allow to soak in to break rust free) and then attempt to turn the emergency brake on and off several times to put pressure on the brake and release it. you can also help the spring activated "return" feature of the brake by moving the brake shoe in and out with your hands when parking brake is in the released position. Be careful not to pry on anything delicate...

Most parking brakes are adjusted by accessing the cable under the vehicle -- there should be some bolts which will require two wrenches to turn -- there will be an adjustment for each wheel.

The cable going to that wheel may be sticking where it goes into the wheel assembly.

Lubricating all components of the emergency brakes system (which you can access) would be agood idea -- inside and outside vehicle.

Emergency Brake Loss


Good day;
After you put it all back together did you drive the car in reverse then apply park brake? If not give this a try, just use your hand park to stop the car, these should fix the problem,Let me know how you made out.
