Red face Help please Parking Brake Cables

I am in the process of removing the rear suspension from my project car new member 930 project

I can't figure out how to pull the parking brake cable out of the trailing arm.



I have it disconnected from the brake internals of the drum and all the parts pulled off the cable end, I just can't pull it through the tube. There looks to be a bushing inside that is preventing it from pulling out.

What am I missing here?

Thanks

Brendon

When I dissasembled my Carrera 3.0 I ended up cutting the cable. It was so rusted that the cable just rotated when I tried to turn the castlelated nut.

Thanks

It's so sad that a community of this caliber can't answer a simple question. 45 lookers on this thread and only one response (thanks Jesper). If only I had the older Bentley to guide my way.....

I'd really hate to CUT 2 perfectly good cables for nothing.

IIRC mine just pulled out. More forza pulling it or try to hammer it out from the cable end with using some wd40 before for good lube?

I'm in Manchester. If I look inside of the tube that the cable slides through from the wheel side I can see some sort of plastic or metal bushing that has a hole in it only big enough for the cable to pull through, so the cable end that attaches to the brake mechanism is way to big. I tried to knock it out with a punch and no luck.

Thanks


Brendon

Ok, so all the manuals I have checked (thanks for the PM's guys) are still not helping. According to the 72-83 911 manual and the 84-89 Bently, I need to remove the "castle" nut from the brake cable and pull it out. My car doesn't have a castle nut on the drum side of the cable.

This is what I have.

Sorry for the cell phone pics

When I disassembled the brake I had to take this out first, the small pin was through the end of the brake cable



Now this is what the cable end looks like now, obviously no castle nut anywhere in sight.






What am I missing here?

This is what our host lists for a cable


Thanks again for all the PM help.


Brendon

Ok, just looked through the 76-84 Turbo Manual and it has the same info as all the others. Has anyone else seen this set up on the parking brake? If so, can I back/forward date to an easier set up?

Thanks.

From what you've shown in your photos, it looks like you should be able to just pull on the cable from the other side and you're done. There should be nothing else holding it. I've done those a few times and that's all there is to it. No magic.

that's what I thought too, but when I look into the hole where you should be able to pull the cable through, I can see a bushing about the diameter of the cable (not cable and end) that is stopping it out. It appears to be either white plastic or raw aluminum. I have tried to use a punch and hammer, but all it is doing is indenting what ever is in there.

Thanks for the reply though

Brendon

IMHO, the cable is probably rusted in there. They are relatively cheap. Just cut it...

Cable is not rusted, it moves freely until it hits that bushing. I looked under the parts section in PP and I can't find any cables for my car that don't have the castle nut on it. If I can find a replacement part, I will just cut off the ends.

I have the service manuals and the procedure for replace the hand brake cable are the same just pull it back. And the part num of your cable is 930 424 051 02 and correspond to 1989/ 930. If that help
