SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: 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!

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.

SOURCE: how do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford

FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

My emergency brake release cable broke. how do I release the brake manually?


Loosen the cable adjusters located underneath the vehicle. You should be able to take the tension out of the cables so the brakes will release.

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.

Had brakes replaced on my 2002 Explorer in Sep 2010 and had to have emergency brake pads replaced yesterday. My husband was under the impression they were the same. Are the emergency pads separate from...


First, the part for your window is called a Regulator. A glass shop is exactly what you need. The glass shops have a lot of experience from break-ins and the window regulators are constantly breaking when used for fast food places, ATM's, and getting the mail from the road. The point is the Regulators should be made stronger because of how we use our cars.

Just go by the Glass shop and set up an appointment and they will get the part for you. The Regulators are available at Autozone, Oreillys and other aftermarket places, but some shops will install the customer supplied parts and others expect to make a little $ selling the part with installation. You can wait while its fixed, about 45 minutes to do it.

The Emergency brakes are separate from the Main brakes. If you live in a State with Annual Vehicle Inspections, the Emergency brakes should have been fixed in Sept. with the rest. Most good Mechanics will tell you once they see their condition. In the Rustbelt, you can have a big problem in fixing the E brakes and attaching cables.

The E brake is a drum-type and is hidden within the rear Rotor hub. When the rear Rotors are removed to machine or replace, the E brake is exposed. This is the first opportunity to inspect them.

So far, your Dealer has provided truthful information.

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.

Parking or emergency Brake problem


Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.
