CLS Parking Brake Cable Replacement

Hi I have just fitted new parking brake shoes but one of the cables appears to have slipped from the mechanism under the rear seat. How can I access this unit. I have removed both rear seat bases but don't know how to remove the centre console. Is the access panel under the car or inside?

Is the access panel to the parking brake cables under the centre console?

Hi Kohigstiger, don't want to spoil your Saturday evening but do you know how to access the parking brake cables. are they under the rear centre console inside the vehicle or underneath the car hidden by the heat shields?

Parking brake shoe replacement factory procedure for reference (SBC may or may not be applicable depending on your model year) as it pertains to your job see here: http://workshop-manuals.com/mercedes...es/page_10368/ + next page

Parking brake rear cable beneath vehicle, under heat shields (self-explanatory narrative) as it pertains to your situation, see here: http://workshop-manuals.com/mercedes...le/page_10353/ + 2 next pages

Parking brake front cable for reference, see here: http://workshop-manuals.com/mercedes...control_cable/ + next page.

Provided rear console removal instructions simply provided as a courtesy if needed for future reference - not associated with parking brake.
