I was asking about this problem a few days ago, unfortunately I have not fixed it yet, because the emergency brake pedal is pushed so far down on the floor board that the carpet won't move, it is down tight against the floor and I can't get it to release I have been pulling on the lever that the end of the cable would go in and it is not moving. Today I took the nuts off the assembly and it is loose but it don't have enough room, it looks like to me if I moved the fuse box over it might come down. Has anyone worked on 2004 Silverado 1500's before, I hate to have to take the whole assembly out to get it to release maybe, so if anyone has any experience on these trucks I would very much appreciate it so much.

I have a picture just like this, unfortunately the problem is that the pedal is down so far against the floor board I can't get it to release. Today I was just going to take the whole assembly out, but right in front of it is a part of the dash and it didn't look like it could be removed, to the side of the assembly is the fuse box and it looks easy to pull out of the bracket, and put it to one side. Do you have any knowledge of these Silverado's. Like I said someone I don't know who pushed this pedal all the way down TIGHT.I appreciate any help I can get.

I have had experience with them, but never to this extent. I was always able to loosen the mounting bolts and release it. If you remove the retaining bolts the entire way, are you able to manipulate it to release. I realize you most likely tried this, but I'm reaching. Let me know.

I'll see if I have a truck near this year at the shop tomorrow and take a look.

I can't get it out enough to release it like I said I think I will try taking the fuse box out of the bracket it is not bolted it just slides out easy enough, I don't know who would push a e-brake all the way down to the floor board like that. Do you think it is pushed down so far it went passed the teeth? I don't see any other way but to take it out, because I am pulling on the release you know where the cable would attach to, and is not doing nothing.I really appreciate the help, this could of just been a 1/2 hour job if that. Thank You
