OEM Part Info - Parking Brake Cable
Although it may be easy to overlook when servicing your vehicle, it’s important to take extra care when replacing your parking brake cables. The parking brake, also known as the emergency brake, is an entirely mechanical backup system for your vehicle to ensure braking capabilities outside of the typical hydraulic systems.
When the parking brake is activated, steel cables attached to the rear brakes of the vehicle pull the brake shoe into contact with the brake drum. Should the parking brake cables not be in good working condition, the ability to prevent the car from rolling away will be compromised, which may lead to serious consequences later.
It is therefore recommended to replace your cables with only OEM parking brake cables. OEM parking brake cables were designed specifically by the manufacturer to be engineered in accordance with the specifications of the rest of the vehicle.
