Jeep WK Ebrake??

My Ebrake cable or something broke. I took out my counsol and couldnt find a break at the connection to the handle and dont see anything obvious on bottom of the car. I havnt not been able to get it on a lift to get a better look just seeing if anyone else has had trouble and where they found the problem

Any help is appriciated.

Re: Jeep WK Ebrake??

Have you checked to make sure your e-brake shoes are still there?

I would tear the rear brakes down, check the condition of the shoes and replace/adjust if required.

You should be able to see at that point if it is a loose/broken cable or something else.

Crestwood1001 is an unknown quantity at this point
I had the same problem, the shoes were missing.

Re: Jeep WK Ebrake??

The shoes seem to be poorly made on the wk. Check there first
