Question about 1990 Toyota Corolla
I have a similar problem. a couple of weeks ago i yanked on the brake and it popped and is now loose. i thought the cable was broken, but today when i went to (finally) take a look at it, i discovered that the cable is ok up to the 'Y' or 'U' joint (am in germany and that words are all different). however, the cable that goes to the right-rear tire doesn't 'pop back' when pulled on. the left-side wire is hard to move.
my question is, should i take off the right-hand wire and replace that or is the problem more likely to be with the driver's side?
also, is it possible to get the schematics for just the handbrake system? where?
I would say the right hand cable has popped out of the handbrake lever attached to the brake shoe.The drivers side seems to be working by the sound of things.
Remove the right wheel and then the brake drum and have a look to see if the cable is attached to anything.If Iam dealing with rear brakes that I have not done before I jack up both rear wheels and sit on axle stands .Remove both wheels and drums and then replace them one at a time.If i forget how it goes back together I go and have a look at the other side.Easy as pie.Hope This Helps
