How do you get the E brake off?


I don't know if I can explain this correctly but I'll try. Some cars that have a foot peddle that activates the emergency brake when foot peddle is compressed. If there is not a brake release handle directly above the peddle, it might have a kind of spring release. Try pressing down on the peddle hard and then move your foot off and out of the way and it might spring back and release that way.

The emergency brake will not release when I pull the release handle.


just a little rusty is it ???\
\
theres a product called release all spray it down the parking break cable ends in the parking break housing
also if need to work asap put truck in reverse and slowely work it back and forth rock the truck

or if all else fails remove tires and wach drums with a hammer untill they release then once open pull the cables with vice grips and have friend pull hand break
so you get a back and forth motion untill cable free remem ber there are 2 rear drums on every truck
so do both cables

Emergency brake locked after pull release handle


handbrake jammed on somewhere ,could be front cable ,because the rear cable is pulled by the compensator so if it was the rear one then i would expect only one cable siezed and that is normally the kerbside one.

Emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado


I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

Emergency Brake Cable Is Broken


Somewhat easy to replace. The part is a dealer item (purchase only from Chevrolet dealer) If you are going to do this yourself, take many photos on the progression of the job to refer back to when putting it back together. Good Luck!

MY EMERGENCY BRAKE IS STUCK WHEN I DRIVE (STD TRAN).THE HANDLE TO PULL THE BRAKE ON PULLS OUT AND BACK IN EASY AND DOESNT LET ME RELEASE THE BRAKE. ANY WAY TO FIX THIS?


jack up the truck, remove back brake drums and loosen emergency brake hardware next to calipers.  Reassemble and lubricate all cables.
That's it in a nut shell.

Emergency brake


I did the same thing a couple of months ago. You can release it manually by reaching under the E-brake pedal and pulling the metal piece (don't know what its called) towards you to release the pedal...hard to describe, but feel around under the pedal and there is a thin metal piece attached that will disengage the brake if shifted....I did it myself when my handle broke off in the store parking lot.
