Sticky emergency brake

Have to pull up the foot pedal to release. Releases fine on warm days. I'm thinking the cable needs lubrication.

Google search shows people removing the back seat to get to the rear cable assembly. Would like to hear similar experiences and fixes.

Thanks!

The issue is not with the cable,but within the parking brake system!

Same issue, dealer replaced entire parking brake assembly for me under warranty so can't tell you what the cost is. Literally did it about 2 weeks ago.

--> Stupid question alert <--
When you guys say "replace the parking brake", you mean only pads, right? This warning just poped out last week for me.

You wouldn't have the part numbers involved, would you? I have to buy them from the US and ship to South America. Any help is most appreciated.

The pad is only a few dollars but if you want to save some money, you can reuse it. The pad is literally as easy as removing and putting back on a hand glove.
