Handbrake cable replacement

Handbrake cable replacement

The parking brake may also serve as an emergency brake when the main brake fails. It is also used to immobilize the car after parking it on an elevation. It is comprised of a lever located next to the driver's seat and cables which activate the rear brakes after the lever is pulled. A malfunctioning cable may prevent you from activating the parking brake. It may also affect its operation and if it breaks, the car may roll down an elevation.
