1996 Nissan 240SX 4 cyl Manual 160000 miles
I've got a very frustrating problem with my parking brake.
After driving for about 45 minutes I came to a stop. I pulled up on the e-brake handle and the handle came all the way to the top. The e-brake seemed to work just fine. I drove back home and smelled that thing that you smell when your clutch is bad. I got under the car and realzied that the passenger side e-brake cable was very loose while the driver side was working just fine. The pivolting bracket that connects the two cables to the handle cable was skewed toward the drivers side. I realize that my passenger side ebrake cable could be stretched, but I have no idea how to disconnect it from that bracketing pivot to even see if it can be adjusted. What can I do?
