changing e-brake cable tomorrow
The e-brake cable on my 2002 suburban broke and I need to buy the part to replace it tomorrow. The cable from the handle to the actual foot brake lever. Anyone have experience doing that? is it a difficult task? Looks pretty simple to me, but just checking for any gotchas or anything.
Thanks for the help.

I knew there was a reason I never use the parking brake. I just leave it in park.
Please take a few pics and do a small narrative in the How To section. I'm sure that others will benefit.There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:

OK so after finally being able to get to the dealership for the part (couldn't find it at Schucks, Auto-storeX, etc) I finally was able to put it in. Sorry forgot to take pictures, but it is really so easy even I could do it.
Requirements = 1 rachet drive or wrench that fits the only screw holding it on. 1 new E-brake handle/cable part.
- Unscrew the screw holding the E-brake release handle to the dash's under-side.
- You may need to cut the zip ties bundling the cable with other wires underneath there.
- Screw on the new handle.
- Be prescriptive about the way you bend the cable to the E-brake linkage (foot part).
- Place a section (plastic piece) of the cable into an elbow bracket by the foot linkage.
- Pull the manual release toward the cable and place the cable end piece into the obvious place where it goes.
