    Parking Brake Release Cable – Repair & Replacement

    What does the parking brake release cable do?

    The parking brake acts as a secondary braking system which allows your vehicle to remain stationary when parked. Most cars either use a hand brake or foot brake.

    The parking brake release cable allows you to disengage the brake and start driving. If the release cable is broken or faulty, the parking brake may not engage/disengage when you need it to.

     

    Causes of a faulty parking brake release cable:

    Rust – The cable can become rusty over time. This can cause it to malfunction and not release your parking brake.

    Low temperature – The parking brake cable functions best in normal, everyday temperatures. Although it is very uncommon, very low temperatures can cause the cable to snap.

     

    Symptoms of a broken parking brake release cable:

    The main symptom of a broken cable is the parking brake not engaging or disengaging. It will likely feel jammed or stuck in place. Try to avoid driving with the parking brake engaged as this can cause more damage to your braking system, resulting in a more expensive repair.
