Hello Im Chris and I will assist you. Which cable broke?

Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 11 months ago.

Did your cable break or the ratcheting mechanism?

Expert:  CHRIS ZAPANTIS replied 11 months ago.

Usually when a cable breaks the e-Brake will release itself. If its not releasing you will have to remove wheels and unadjust it completely. Then repair the problem that caused it to stick.
