Remove the rear brake drum. Refer to Brake Drum Replacement. Using denatured alcohol, clean the rear brake shoes.

Using a pair of channel locks, remove the retractor spring from the primary brake shoe. Remove the primary brake shoe from the backing plate.

Using a small flat-blade screwdriver, press the lock tab for the park brake cable.

Remove the return spring.

Hold the lock tab in place. IMPORTANT:Pushing forward on the park brake cable will unlock the cable from the retainer allowing the cable to be removed from the park brake lever. Push the park brake cable forward.

IMPORTANT:When removing the park brake cable from the lever, the park brake return spring will remain attached to the lever. DO NOT remove the return spring from the lever. If the return spring becomes separated from the lever, replace the rear brake shoes. The lever is part of the brake shoe assembly. Remove the park brake cable from the lever.
