95 Ford E-250 Emergency Brake Issue


I really need your help with this thread. My Emergency brake cable recently snapped on my 95 E-250. So I went ahead and purchased the exact same parts to make up the same size as the existing cable. These parts included the Dorman C660342 and the Dorman C94477.

I thought this would have been a very easy swap and took apart the brake cable and attached the new cables I purchased. The issue I ran into is that the new cable wasn't long enough to reach.....any ideas here? Tires plus wanted $450 to replace this which is crazy as I hardly even use this.

I thought maybe they sell the whole e-brake assembly but I cannot find this online.

Any help? Thanks in advance.

Re: 95 Ford E-250 Emergency Brake Issue

If it was about 4in short , this might explain .

" It has been a few years since i did my 93 E 150, Take out the park brake peddle assy,disconnect the cable under the van and leave it attached at the peddle assy. Clamp the assy in a vice. Grab the cable with vice grips and pull back to expose the end of the cable. once the cable end is exposed there is a hole to place a drill bit or pin into that will keep the mechanism in the pulled out position. now you can remove old/ attach new cable, keep the pin installed until assy bolted into place,and cables all attached.
if i remember correct, there is about 4" travel in that assy. good luck "
