ok, bear with me

Expert:  Randall C replied 6 months ago.

ok, you will need to follow directions in the attachments I have included. trim unclips with putty knife etc to pop it off, You will be removing the floor consol. Once removed, you can undo cable and unbolt e brake unit, Likley the return spring or latch lever broke not allowing the e brake to ratchet and hold. I have no way to know which happened or for that matter if you can see a problem with it once you get to the ebrake control. Here are the links for getting to it and how to change if if need
