If the cable has broken, to obtain a repair quote, please click on "Get a Quote" at YourMechanic’s emergency brake cable replacement service page. As long as the parking break lever is not damaged and the remainder of the cable actuating system is intact, you may only need the front cable. Of course, this can only be determined once the vehicle is inspected by the Mechanic but if you request a quote that will give you a good idea of the cost. In all events, replacing the cable on a mobile basis will save you money compared to driving the vehicle to a shop. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
