Take the shakle loose at devider on frame rail near cab and bed split, on driver side of truck.need a screw driver and a wrench. then remove the brake drum to the side you are replacing.disconnect returnspring for brake shoes at top of brake shoes, than remove the little circle looking spring off of the rear shoe. you will see the actuating lever with the cable installed to it remove by pulling back the spring on the cable and removing from lever. trick! slide a twelve mm. box end wrench down the cable to the backing plate retainer. hold the wrench over the retainer and pull the cable thru. reverse for instalation. once your back together adjust both rear brakes, then adjust cable at splitter.if adjusted propperly it should only have 5 clickes at peddle. Hope it helps if not let me know. good luck from Joe.

How can I realse emergency brake if cable cutting for tahoe 2009


With an assistant, release the parking brake cable tension by pulling straight back on the intermediate cable at the cable-to-cable union until the parking brake control sector (of the brake pedal) rotates to a stop. then insert a 4mm retainer pin in the parking brake control pedal to keep it from retracting on you.
Disconnect the cable running from the brake pedal to the cable-to-cable union underneath the car.
Then replace the damaged or severed cable that controls either the left or right rear parking brake shoes.

How do i get brake to release


The wheel that is seized with the brake should be identified, and the car should be securely supported on a jack. The seized wheel should be removed so that the brake is visible. Gently tapping the brake with a hammer helps remove any adhesions. The cable may need to be replaced because the parking brake can become stuck due to a faulty cable or faulty calipers. The cable can rust and wear down over time.
The symptoms of a faulty emergency brake include a very heavy brake pedal, a burning smell from the front tires, and dark, dirty brake fluid. Replacing the brake fluid can also help keep the emergency brake lubricated. After going through below-freezing temperatures, the cable can freeze and remain in place even when the emergency brake handle is lowered.

Is your hand brakes cable hold the rear brakes? If it does then the cable is rusted inside the cable housing causing the caliper to be holding the other side.. Replace hand brake cables. Or try to release the cable.

Emergency brake not working after changing rear brake shoes on a 1990 gmc pickup 1500 series? And how do I release the emergency pedal from the floor? It won't release when you step on it?


Was the brake shoes replacement a DIY or professional job. If DIY, are you certain that you reassembled the brakes properly? Does the truck move at all? Does it feel as though the e-brake is applied? With the e-brake pedal to the floor, the truck should not move freely when the accelerator pedal is depressed. The emergency brake assemblies on both rear wheels are connected to a cable assembly that ultimately leads to the e-brake pedal. The cable has an adjustment point and a spring tensioner to prevent slack in the cable. First, crawl under and physically check the cable tension. If it's loose, either the cables are not connected to the rear wheels' brake assemblies, not connected properly, or the cable and/or pedal is damaged/broken. If the cable is tight - overly tight, but the e-brake is not holding the truck from moving, the e-brake levers attached to the shoes inside the brake drums are likely not installed correctly. Double check your installation and consider replacing the e-brake cable (as a precaution). As for the pedal, you may have to remove it in order to get the ratchet-locking mechanism to release.
Of course, if this was a professional job, call the shop and have them make it right. Good luck.

Brakes keep locking up


Your e-brake cable is causing this,happened to me,my driver side e-cable was bad causing that side to lock up,messed up my drum.You must replace the e-cable.There's a hole on inside plate,maybe with a rubber plug,you can remove plug and get flat head screw driver and put in hole and push star screw to take pressure off brake,but it will keep locking up till you replace e-cable.check your drum to see if brake shoe ate into it,if so replace the other side one to.This problem will cause you u-joint to go bad,did mine.

2001 GMC Jimmy 2D won't pass inspection because the parking brake won't stay down. Is this an expensive fix?


No, it's not that expensive. I have the same problem and am fixing it now.
Basically you need to replace the parking brake assembly that is held on with 3 bolts, and the 2 cables. ( brake cable and release handle )
The Brake cable has three flared tabs you need to squeeze to get it out of the assembly.
Get a replacement brake assembly at your local wreckers, Mine will cost $22.00
Re-install the large cable with the flanges and then bolt it in, then attach the release cable.
Done!

The parking brake cable should be replaced but in the short term try getting under the truck and grabbing the cable casing and move them around to get the seized cable inside the cable casing to release keep working the cable until it releases if this doesn't work replace both cables.

The brake locked up on my 1989 firebird, how can i fix it?


If the e brake is stuck the cables are likely bad anyways. Just cut the cables right at the back of the backing plates for the rear brakes. Then replace the cables if you really want to fix them. You regular brakes will still work fine.
