Re: Parking Brakes delivering the Suck!

Did some forum surfing, and found out that the gable has a spring in it tk put tension on the cable.

I tore apart the other side and found much of the same corrosion happiness, and in addition, the cable was not connected.
After some persuasion I got the cable un-stuck from it’s retracted position - but there is no tension, pulled it out aways and pulled lightly on the handle - no movement.

So I surmise this:
The Pass side cable is broken at or after the Y connector under the rear seat.
That to reattach the adjuster once you have removed it, either the other assembly has to be complete or you hold the opposite cable out with a vice-grips to release the tension.

Sound right?
