2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Parking Brake
Hello everyone, Happy Holidays. I have a 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee with a parking brake of the pull-up lever type. This morning when applying or pulling up on the lever, I heard and felt a "pop", and the lever went limp. It still gives a weak clicking sound when pulling up, and the parking brake indicator light still illuminates when applying and goes out upon releasing, but there is no tension applied to the brake shoes to hold the vehicle still. My theory is the connection between the brake lever cable and the tensioner cables to the rear wheels has been severed somehow. I elevated the vehicle, and crawled underneath, and watched while I had an assistant move the brake lever up and down, but I couldn't see any movement or even locate the tensioner cables to the rear wheels, Anyone have any ideas what repairs I may be facing and what parts may be needed? I"m in the Atlanta, Ga. area. Thanks all.
