SOURCE: Merecedes C270 - the foot operated parking brake,

Hi :)
Very common problem do loads. You need to lubricate the handbrake linkage under the rear seats ( the bit ur bum goes on). If you have a estate car then the seats will flip up but if its a saloon car then you will have to remove 2 13mm nuts for either side seat. When ur under there, u will see a little black panel in the middle, remove it 2 8mm self tappers and a 13mm nut. right you should now see the linkage where the cable splits to either side of the car. Get a load of wd-40 and spray whilst some else operates the handbrake 100 times or so. sorted! Dont forget to adjust the handbrake at the wheels after, go all the way with the adjust and back off two clicks either side.
Hope this works and good luck1

How do I install a new parking break cable and handle


The ratchet is just bolted to the car with 3-4 bolts. Then go under the car and remove the adjuster nuts at the "U" divider bar. All large American cars use the same system for the park brake, so please watch the video, I know this job and the video will show all you need to know, you will need to raise the car off the ground.

Broke parking brake cable. Need to release park brake to get it to shop for repairs.


You need to lower the underdash shroud. Couple 7mm nuts hold it on. Look to the left at the parking brake pedal. Follow along a black sort of tube to the end. That end will have a cable comming out of it. Follow the cable. The cable is attached to the parking brake release lever. Pull the cable or the release handle and the parking brake should release.

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!

2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 brake release cable broke and won't release the emergency brake. I checked the brake release handle and cable and discovered a small nut like metal piece on the floor below...


Same thing happened to me on my 2000 silverado July 3, 2009.
There is a release next to the parking brake pedal. You have to reach way under the dash but it has worked for me for the last month. I have the part to fix it but haven't had the time.

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.
