What do you mean by front brake cable and what are you trying to do?

Front brakes are not equipped with cables.

Ford ranger has an e brake cable that is broken into 3 parts, front that is conected to the pedal, middle that is the middle and the rear that is connected to the two rear drums. The front cable is a mother because the spring has to be rewond in order to get the cable off.
This question is better anserwed by a real ford dealer, witch this website has none.

You are asking for assistance and with your attitude, you do not deserve any help at all. If it had bee any of the other technicians answering this question, you would have gotten a lot of brick bat in return.

The problem with most people here is that when they say one word, we are expected to be able to understand what the whole sentence mean.

When asking a question, you need to provide as much detail as possible. E-brake and brakes are 2 different thing.

If you need a Ford dealer, you should be calling your local dealer, not through cyberspace.

I would not go down to your level and here are the procedures, hope you can understand what they mean.

Why don't you just do that and don't comeback and if you do you'll be dealing with Mr merlin, Me and Team 2 carpros on this Found On Road Dead. We're no trained in mind reading all we know is automotive services and repairs period.
