I have a 2002 Chevy Sliverado, V8 4.8l engine. I engaged the parking brake at work and when I went to release it, the cable broke but the brake is still engaged. Is there anyway to dis-engage the brake.

Thanks

Which cable broke? Front, middle, or a rear? Drum or disc brakes?

It is the release cable inside that cab that you pull to release the brake. It is disc all the way around.

On the same release lever there should be a small arm that points to the firewall, push it down and it will release, or if not get a screw driver and pull in the spot the cable attached to!
