Hi there. You can request a quote to have the emergency brake cable replaced on your 2002 Kia, which will provide you with the details you’re seeking. 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.
