EMERGENCY BRAKE RELEASE

1994 Infiniti J30

Brakes problem
1994 Infiniti J30 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 200000 miles

Emergency brake release handle broke off. Is there an easy way I can release the brake from under the hood? Can't drive to the mechanic's. Can't be towed?

Best ways are if you can see exposed cable underneath the truck, go underneath and yank down on the cable as hard as you can. If the parking brake isnt needed or you just need to free the brake to move the truck and can go get it repaired if necessary, cut the cable back by the brake and the brake will release. Shouldnt cost more that 150 bucks to get a new e-brake installed.
