What Is The Parking (Emergency) Brake Cable?

The parking brake cable is a thin, steel cable that connects the parking brake lever to the parking brake shoes. It is located underneath the car. In order to create the friction that keeps the car from rolling and ensures the brakes are locked, the parking brake cable forces the parking brake shoes to press against the rotor/drum. It is just like using the brake pedal, but in this case, you are using the parking brake cable instead of brake fluids to apply the pressure. As time progresses, this cable can eventually rust and break, and if broken, can cause the car to roll even when the parking brake is engaged.

Common Signs And Symptoms That You Need To Replace Your Parking Brake Cable

  • Parking brake does not hold car in place and does not release
  • Parking brake warning light is on

How Important Is This Service?

Maintaining the brakes is one of the most important safety features for any vehicle owner and is key to a vehicles upkeep for long term ownership. Unfortunately, brake maintenance is often overlooked by drivers. Maintaining the cars brake system can help to prevent costly repairs in the long run, and can keep the car in the best form to avoid a collision. Furthermore, if this damage is not addressed, it can progress to the point that the brakes are ineffective and might totally fail, putting the vehicle and its occupants in danger.

One of the best car experiences I've ever had. 10/10

One of the best car experiences I've ever had. 10/10. Booked and quoted on the phone. George was a really nice guy. Knowledgable and practical. Only did the work that was needed with a head's up of when to expect future service. All for a competitive price while I continued with my normal day in my own home. Why didn't anyone think of this before?! I will definitely use them again and recommend to my friends.
