Default E Brake Help

Hello Everyone,

I just picked up a 2000 Ranger and the emergency brake doesnít work. When I depress the pedal, it doesnít move all that much.

Here is a pic of what the cable bracket looks like,I feel something is missing.

Any help is greatly appreciated.C7C81C30-8236-4FCB-99A9-E57AD2A5DBFC.jpg

The cable is probably seized. Looks fine in the picture but that doesnít mean itís good. Also remove the drums and check the hardware. Make sure everything is working properly. The cable is supposed to look that way, itís the pain in the ass 3 piece Y shaped cable.

He is correct, I had a similar issue with my 04 ranger, a replacement of drum hardware corrected my issue though

Fluid Film it way better than any PB or WD. Its fun getting it out . just measure it before ordering replacement so many lengths
Dont fix it unless it's broken or you really bored
