Year : 2004Make : Chevrolet
Pulling the cable but it has slack.is there a release point near the rear?
so the release handle broke?
Yes the handle is broke and the cable has slack, There appears to be a tube where the cable goes through the dash or firewall
did the pedal come up when you attempted to release it?
no. I tried to push it down and then hoped it would release but it just ratched down more. Is there a release at the rear brakes?
yes at the backing plates behind the rear drums that is where the ebrake cable connects it attaches to the pivot arms that apply the e brake shoes, you can disconnect t he cable there
so if the cable is disconnected does that release the brake?
yes it will
