Installing the emergency brake release cable in the dash

The cable snapped from the release handle and I've purchased a new cable. I have disassembled the lower dash panel as well as the metal face plate. However, I can't quite figure out how the inside end of the cable attaches to the release device for the e-brake.

My cable to my emergency brake snapped off right at the handle, i cant grab any of the cable to release the brake. how difficult is this to repair , or is their a way to release the brake.

I assume it is a foor brake and not a hand brake???
If so, put your head under the dash and look at the brake mechanism. You should see a lever where the cable from the handle went to. Being extremely careful, you can move that lever by hand. Just watch out for the pedal and the brake mechanism that will snap back when its released.

How do you release emergency brake 94 dodge dakota after used? Brakes went out used emergency. Now i can't release them.

either there is a release handle or you may have to press the pedal down further and it should auto-release. Are you up north? salt? rusty cars? if the pedal is UP but the brakes are still applied, then the cables are rusted /siezed and you will need new cables and rear brake service to have brakes again.

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.

Cable from parking brake release handle not connected at pedal.

Get the "Shop" to come back out to fix it or sue the *** off them for leaving you with a dangerous car.
No handbrake is an offence !!!

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!

Hi - emerg brake cable snapped and rear wheels are locked up -

If main cable is snapped, you may get them to move for you by spraying cables where they go into backing plate, and give them a sharp/quick rap with a screwdriver handle or similar. I've got a way with that a few times. rap, rap, rap, rap repeat, and sometimes it will save restling with adjusters. I am curious though, if they weren't partially seized prior, they should have released when cable snapped.Get back to us if that doesn't work.
