    Parking Brake Replacement

    My Parking/Emergency brake is pretty worn out at this point (22 years of use, lol). I want to replace it with a fresh OEM one, but I'm hearing it's a bit of a PITA to swap out. Is there a guide/tutorial somewhere out there that I can check out?
    I'd like a clean interior again, like back in 1995 lol.

    It is actually quite simple. Remove the middle console, pull the handbrake as far back, put the stick lever forward, this will help with the removal of console. Once out the bracket is bolted with 14mm bolts, and the cable is only held with 2 10mm bolts

    Is there any way to tighten/adjust the cable?

    Where the cable meets the hand brake there should be a adjustment screw on the end of the cable. You also can adjust the adjustment cog at each rear wheel in the parking brake drum assembly.

    This, I replaced mine this spring. It was very easy, the adjustment nut towards the rear bottom of the hand brake (I think). This should take maybe 15-20 mins to replace the brake once you remove your center console.
