      unless you live in the desert it is more than likely rusted. I found it too be a weak design that lets water in. It works with 2 levers that rust together and become one.. good luck, it took me a while just to chisel it apart

      Same here. That little rubber seal there doesn't seem to work very well.

      First time I pulled my rear rotors and looked at the parking brake pads the lining had fallen off the shoes. I need the cable for the drivers side as mine is corroded and stuck. Right side works great.
