I own a 2007 Nissan Maxima and I would like to remove the emergency brake "sleeve" and reinstall it !!! The EB sleeve has a seam about 8" down from the front of the EB button !
Is this sleeve hard to remove and how much time should it take ?

On the rear wheels, the inside of the rotors act as a drum for the emergency brake shoes. You must loosen the emergency brake so that the shoes back away from the inside walls of the rotor. Loosen the emergency brake, left and right side, by loosening both nuts at the emergency brake handle. Further, the emergency brake's internal adjusting nuts are accessible through the lug holes in the hub. Then remove the rear rotors
Typically if your brake light is on and there is nothing going on with the Ebrake, when the pads start to wear down, that can drop the fluid level and set off that light. You may need to just replace pads and possibly top off fluid. Hope this helps.
If you can't get emergency backed off to allow for movement, then you'll have to get small pointed object (screwdriver or whatever) in adjustment hole to lift lever holding adjuster wheel, then back off adjuster wheel at same time until free. If it's emergency cables seized at backing plate area, try spraying where cable goes into sleeve with penetrating spray, and rap sleeves of cables going into backing plate with a stick, or screwdriver handle and it may help them retract enough to loosen up shoes in drum. Good Luck.
