Installed new e-brake cable on LR but can't get the cable to link back together at the junction. There is about 3" between the junction and the new cable. The spring at the wheel will not compress enough to provide the needed 3". We removed the e-brake pedal assembly under the dash in hopes we could release the cable there to provide enough slack to connect the cables at the junction point. However there is no obvious way to release the cable at that point as it is held in place by the return spring. I can't find instructions anywhere telling me how to resolve this issue. We have an Explorer in the shop made the same way and we nerd to understand how to change the cable. Anyone have the secret? Thanks in advance.
