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.

Charles is very thorough and professional. I’ve had two appointments with him recently and have been very satisfied with both. He has been on time (early) for the appointments and helpfully follows the YourMechanic process. He has done a thorough inspection, completed his assessment and answered my questions.

I was skeptical, like many people will be when it comes to using Your Mechanic, but I am glad I chose to use their business. I mean come on, a mechanic that comes out to you and fixes your car while you do whatever it is you want. It sounds too good to be true doesn't it. That's what I thought at first too. I am very satisfied with the service I received from Manuel. He arrived 15 minutes early, and proceeded to go over the services I requested for my car. He also asked me if there was any other concerns or problems with my car that I wanted him to look at. I told him about the problem I have been having with my hood latch, and he said he would take a look at it free of charge since it only needed to be adjusted. Manuel kept me up to date with the status of my car, and he even informed me that one of my wheels were missing the spindle nut (part of the wheel bearing assembly), and he went out of his way to find the part at the local junk yard! I didn't have to pay him anything either. Once my car was complete, he gave me a summary of what he did, the overall cost, and followed through with his recommendations. For those of you that are skeptical of using this service, go out on a limb and give them a try and you won't be disappointed. The people that wrote negative reviews are biased. How can you say a company or service is below average when they have only been to Your Mechanic one time? It is unfair to bash the company when one doesn't even have an accurate baseline on how the company operates. It's understandable that everyone has an "off" day and may not provide the best service possible, but keep in mind these mechanics come to you to work on your car. If one does not like this company, go to the dealership and pay more money. It's ultimately your choice. One last thing, if you're unsure of the service or have questions, just call the company and talk to them. They are people too and will do what they can to leave a lasting impression on you.

I wasn't home when Alex came to fix my truck but my fiance was. He said that Alex did a awesome job. He was very informative on what needed to be done with the car. Also he let us know what services needed to be done immediately and what we could hold off on.
