For many reasons, cable assemblies may require maintenance, and the most common problem is the stuck cable.
If the parking brake is not used, the rust is accumulated in the insulating layer and the cable is locked in place. Then, when you try to stop the brakes, you can feel the tension of control, but there is no power on the brakes. The system can malfunction in the opposite way, and if you engage the brake and maintain its condition, the system cannot be released when the cable is stuck in the insulation and may make the car almost unusable. The engine of the vehicle will permanently block the brakes, but stopping with the truck will cause serious damage to the brakes.
Tip: prior to maintenance, qualified professional personnel must inspect, as some vehicles are equipped with multiple cables. Once the maintenance technician points out which cable must be replaced, you can complete the maintenance in accordance with the procedures in the vehicle maintenance manual.
Some common parking brake problems are:
It's too easy to control the application, the brake doesn't hold
Control applications are very difficult
When applied, the parking brake is not fixed
The parking brake holds only one wheel, while should hold two
Noise in the mounting area of the parking brake mechanism from the vehicle
The parking brake remains on the level, but not at the tilt
Although rare use of parking brakes may cause breakdowns; regular use of the parking brake requires its own maintenance form. Even if you are using the parking brake before you leave the car, this is the mechanical system, and the mechanical system needs to be maintained from time to time.
The parking brake cable is responsible for maintaining a large amount of tension. The system is designed to maintain this type of force, but due to use, the cable begins to extend over time and will need to be adjusted to make it tense again. See more at http://www.autocontrolcable.com/
