What is the Emergency/Parking Brake Cable all about?

The parking brake cable is a thin, steel cable that connects the parking brake lever to the parking brake shoes. It is located underneath the car. When you pull the lever, this cable enables the parking brake shoes to press against the rotor or the drum, creating the friction that keeps the car from rolling. It is just like using the brake pedal, but in this case, you are using the parking brake cable instead of brake fluids to apply the pressure. Over time the cable can rust and break. If the parking brake cable is broken, the car will roll even when the parking brake has been engaged.

Keep in mind:

The brake drums or pads often need to be removed to access the emergency brake cable. During this time, the drums and pads should be inspected to see if they also need to be replaced.

How it's done:

  • Remove and replace parking brake cable.
  • Adjust parking brake.
  • Test parking brake.

Our recommendation:

Always apply the parking brake when the car is parked. This will keep the parking brake adjusted properly. Your mechanic should inspect the parking brake cable during every brake service. They should also periodically spray rust penetrant chemical on the cable to prevent rust from building up.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Emergency/Parking Brake Cable?

  • Parking brake does not hold car.
  • Parking brake does not release.
  • Parking brake warning light is on.

How important is this service?

All services associated with proper function of your brakes are important. In addition to safety issues, ignoring small repairs can quickly lead to more serious (and more expensive) problems.

BMW 330Ci L6-3.0L - Fuel Pump - Fairfield, California
I was working out of town when my 2006 BMW 330CI Convertable failed to start. The closest BMW dealer was 20 miles away and a tow would have been costly so I went on line, found "Your Mechanic" and scheduled a time to meet with Gary. Gary was right on time, determined it was a fuel pump failure and scheduled a time the next day to install a new purmp. Gary included me in the process, explained his testing results, installed an OEM pump and showed me the old one; all at a very reasonable cost. He was pleasant, timely, and professional. I highly recommend Gary to anyone who is in need of a high quality, honest and professional car maintenance and repair service in the Faircfield area. I only wish I lived closer to use Gary as the mechanic for both of our cars.
