How do i replace my hand brake cable on my ford falcon XH ute

wait a bit it rear disc or rear drums on that ute

will assume its under dash hand brake pull lever tyoe

the disc setup may have single cables for each rear
rear disk brake cable is approx $ 150

if your XH it is close to the XE and XF set up drums
a complete one line loop cable outer and inner
with plastic grommets along the back chassis rail ( they break )
so the one inner cable works both rear handbrake shoes

hand brake cable is a shorty

undo the adjustment thread
just below the hand brake cable point up somewhere above the gearbox
(drums )
after new cable fitted
drums are adjusted with the old school way with the handbrake adjuster tool
handbrake cable adjusted

then the handbrake handle when pulled out to hold needs14 plus clicks
comes out a long way for some weird reason
on drums
if cable adjustment is done wrong onrear drums the handbrake cable will come loose in the drum as you drive along

If it is stiff, it might be the cable. The only way to find out for sure is to locate the business end of the cable and see it goes back and forth. Something could have broken or come apart on the hand brake end too

Parking brake cable broke

Its very easy to replace, first you need to follow the cable from the handbrake to identify the one that has broken. You should be able to replace it as its quite simple. Disconnect the cable and then pull it through, to replace start from inside the vehicle and thread it through. Then just connect the same way you disconnected

Change handbrake cable

Hi Steve, The problem sounds as if it is the park brake adjustment or wear on the cable, (which may be binding inside the outer cover. This can be caused by a frayed inner cable and the ends catching). Try adjustment first and then only replacement of the cable. I have not carried out the job on a vehicle of this type, but replacement should be straightforward and logical. I'm fairly sure it will mean the removal of the center consul and disassembly of the brake activation levers on the parking brake shoes. Take some photographs or make some sketches before disassembling so you know how to re assemble. Regards John

Handbrake does not operate at all it feels like it is not connected to anything

Is the handle totally loose...if it is, then your brake cable is broken, needs to be replaced.
If the cable is good, then your drums need adjustment, or shoes need to be replaced...

Good luck.

I have 98 model of corolla and the handbrake do not hold the car, not even just a little .....

it iss probably a broken brake cable. If the handle offers no resistance when you pull on it then the cable is broken. If it offers a lot of resistance then it is rusted and needs to be replaced. If the cable is OK then the problem lies inside the wheel where the emergency brake cable activates the mechanism.

Handbrake cable broken

There will be a plastic cover to pry off. You will see the screws underneath, raise handbrake and than pull off.
