2004 Chevy truck E-Brake

Recommended Posts

Fishing Devils Lake this past weekend and backed down to unload boat, set e brake and it went to floor. nothing there, worked day before. Had to lift up for brake light to go off. It just hangs there loose. Feels like unhooked from lever. What do I look for? Does anybody have a pix of where the cable hooks to the lever?

Thanks for your time.

Checked under dash, cable not broke. It moves through floor and moves cable under truck. However, it does not hold truck or return to "up" position when released. I'll pull back wheel to see what's going on. What to look for?

No he did not replace those. Just getting calipers off and the bracket off to pull the rotors was the problem. It was so rusted they had to be heated to get apart. One bolt head even broke off leaving a whole new set of problems. The inside foot pedal for the e-brake would not return (sprung), so that was replaced as well along with a broke cable underneath.

worked on mine last night. One of the Ebrake shoes was toast, but that side had a stuck cable. Other side was good, but replaced it anyways since they come in a set of two. Tested it afterwards and it wasn't getting enough pressure to prevent the tire from spinning. I ordered the left and right rear cables today, hopefully that gets everything working again.
