Parking Brake Cable Replacement
If nothing else, I always come to you guys with interesting stories. That said...
So a couple months ago, I'm driving home from work at about 3AM, roads are dead, etc. I'm doing about 65MPH on a highway, coming up on an intersection. The light turns green, I glance both ways, looks clear, so I hit the gas, and head through the intersection. About the time I'm 150 feet short of the light, some fool in a beat up old Camaro flies through the red light, and I'm about to T-Bone him. I stood on the brakes as hard as I could, and the truck braked surprisingly well for its weight/age, and I didn't hit him. However, while standing on the brakes, something "gave" in the pedal. I get to the next intersection, and go to hit the brakes, pedal goes straight to the floor. I drove the rest of the way home with only my parking brake working, so every time I'd come up to a stop, I'd just use the parking brake to slow down/stop. Worked quite well. I got home, and the next day replaced my right rear caliper, which had split completely in half, then kinda turned into powder.
So fast forward a couple months. I pulled up to a friend's house for a night of drinking, and turned the truck off, and yanked the parking-brake lever up. Problem is, the lever went up with no resisitance and broke a chunk off the center console. So, I'm assuming the parking brake cable broke. I've searched the forum for the last 20 minutes, and I can't find anything on replacing it. I also checked the Rave manual, and didn't get anywhere in there. Sooo... does anybody have a parking brake cable replacement thread/walkthrough?
