on my 99, i had the spring loaded catch under the dash rust up and hang. follow the peddle back to the hing and locate the catch and release assemble. cover the carpet with plastic and lubricate the spring loaded area. a compressed lubricant maybe helpful since some areas are not easily seen.caution should be used at this point to avoid spraying yourself in the eyes, since you will be standing on your head inches away. then work the peddle to free rust from the parts. yu may still have oil dripping from the hinge so leave the plastic down unitl you are sure it is safe. continue working the peddle over the next few days if it doesnt release immediately.
The throttle cable goes from the 'gas' pedal to the carburetor or throttle body to control the speed of the engine. On cars the brake cable goes to the emergency brake, on some motorcycles the brake cable goes to the brakes. (The main brakes for cars and some motorcycles are hydraulically operated, not by a cable.)
I don't know about Silverado trucks but all of the emergency (parking) brakes I'm familiar with use the brake cable to "pull" and hold the brake against the drum (or disk), so if the cable breaks you simply cannot apply the emergency brake. That is, it is automatically released if the the cable breaks.
It depends which cable is broken. If the main cable is broken under the truck, the brakes should release on their own. If the brakes dont release, the cables are frozen from rust and need to be replaced. If the release cable from the handle to pedal assemdly is broken reach under the dash above the pedal and find the small release arm. Pull the arm toward you [ the rear of vehicle ] and the emergency brake pedal will release.
jack the car up and there is a cable going to both back brakes, usually if you yank on the cable it should release them
Check parking brake if you use it. Sounds like broken cable.
When brakes will not release when a foot is off the pedal, this is called sticking. There are various reasons for brakes sticking, but the most common involve an obstruction with the brake cable or the brake pads physically sticking to the drums or rotors. The safest way to remedy this problem is to have a professional inspect the vehicle.
Hand brakes are attached to the rear brakes in most vehicles. Start with making sure the rear brakes are in good working order and adjusted. Most vehicles will have a cable adjustment connected with the front cable that leads to the hand brake. Make this cable adjustment after the rear brakes have been inspected and adjusted.
sounds like the emergancy brake cable
Front emergency brake? Do you mean a frozen cable? If front brake is locked may be a frozen caliper Emergency brake tied to rear brakes only
The emergency brake cable is connected to the brake shoe on the rear brakes. You can adjust the emergency brake by loosening or tightening the nut on the end of the cable.
If its broken, then the cable is released. IF the breaks are still sticking, then the rear brakes will have to be opened up and the mechanism freed up.
Attaching homemade brakes on a bike is a simple process/ You will need a wrenches and cable cutters. The first step is to loosen the brake caliper, then loosen the near the back and pull the gyro loose. The final step is cutting the brake cable to the right size, attaching the cable to the right side of the brake, and testing the brakes to make the sure the cable does not break.
