Emergency/Parking Brake Cable Replacement Service & Cost

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.

Very satisfied with the overall repair.The first radiator did not fit my car but,Patrick was very calm and took out the new one and put my old one back in just so I could have transportation for the weekend. Brought out another radiator on Monday and started overThis one went right in and all was good. I really felt so bad that the first one didn't fit. Patrick seemed to take it all in stride. A very nice mechanic to have working for you. I will use him again if needed.

Trung

Trung did a great job and worked thru the inevitable challenges of replacing parts on a 15 year old car....in this case a frozen exhaust manifold stud which broke on dis-assembly. He obtained the part without me having to deal with it and was promptly back the next day to finish up while I was at work.
