Q: Emergency brake lever broke

asked by on

My emergency brake lever broke and I cannot release the emergency brake.

Hi. I’m not sure if you mean the cable broke of the lever itself. In any case, you’ll need to replace the failed components in order to fix your vehicle. There is no workaround way to release the emergency brake. A mechanic from YourMechanic, can come to your location and inspect your emergency brake for you.
