I am replacing my emergency brakes and have come across a very rusty actuator switch which I would like to replace. I cannot find this part's name. I have found the picture of it on the Parking Brake Job thread 3rd page along with some information on loosening up the rusty part in the knowledge base. Also, how do I get it off? Does the piece at the end of the cable screw off?
google search this.
there is a tool to remove the cable (emergency brake cable release tool) . one of these will make it easier to remove the cable but doable without one. It basically pulls the spring back and holds it in place as you unhook it from the adjuster lever.
