Problem with Parking Brake
Sep 25, 2005 - Atlanta, GA - Conventional, Mechanical
WHILE SETTING THE EMERGENCY BRAKE, THE PLASTIC BUTTON WHICH HOLDS THE BRAKE IN PLACE DETACHED FROM THE HANDLE, AND NOW THE BRAKE WILL NOT HOLD, AND THE PARKING BRAKE NOW DOES NOT STAY SET. I FEEL THAT THIS IS AN UNSAFE SITUATION, BUT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND ANYBODY WITH THE REPLACEMENT PART. PLEASE CONTACT ME IMMEDIATELY WITH A PLAN OF ACTION. THANK YOU, DAVID WISDOM.

WHILE PARKING ON AN INCLINE AND WHILE SETTING THE EMERGENCY BRAKE BY PULLING THE EMERGENCY BRAKE ARM THERE WAS NO RESPONSE AT ALL LIKE THE NORMAL CLICKING. VEHICLE WAS INSPECTED BY A LICENSED MECHANIC WHO DETERMINED THAT THE BRAKE CABLE SNAPPED IN HALF.
