You'll need to remove both rear wheels. On the inside behind the drums/or/ on the rotors , you'll see the cable coming in from the backing plate. Remove the cables for each wheel and pry back the brake shoes. Eventually though, you'll have to replace and adjust the cables in order to pass your states inpection levels. Thank you, Dana

Brake realese cable broke from inside vehicle how do i unlock the emergency brakes


You will need to get underneath the vehicle and loosen the emergency brake adjuster to relieve the tension on the cables. Bear in mind that untill you replace the broken cable and readjust the emergency brake, you will have no emergency brakes.

My emergency brake lever broke. cant get the brake off


if you get a flash light and go under the dash to the mechanism itself you see what holds the ratcheting mechanism and with a screwdriver(or pliers if part of the cable is still there) will be able to release the brake. be careful not to let it snap you.

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!

Emergency brake on a 2002 Caravan


There should be a cable running underneath the car along the rear axle from one wheel to the other that connects to the cable running to the front emergency brake handle.

Follow the cable until you find the adjustment screws and turnbuckle on the cable.

Loosen the screws holding the turnbuckle tight.
Adjust the turnbuckle until the cable is tight.
Test the brake handle and readjust if necessary.

Some cars have auto adjusting rear brakes which will sometimes re-seat by running in reverse and pushing on the brake several times. Try this first!

If none of the above works, you will have to take off the rear wheels and adjust the brakes manual at the wheel hub.
