Dizzy Re: L200 Parking Brake Issues

On my 2002 saturn LW200, the parking brakes never worked. like you I just put it off and finally got around to replacing it. 4 disc brakes front & rear..

First thought- Cables which looked rusted.. replaced both sides

Parking brake still does not work..

Further inspection, there is a spring mechanism located at the bottom of the rear disc brake housing where the parking brake cable feeds into under the bottom rose bushing.. this spring looks like a tension that pull the cable back when disengaged. Passenger side had the spring, driver's side spring was missing..

added spring from scrap yard.

Parking brake still does not work.

Next up will be taking off the rear wheels and take off the calipers and discs to visually inspect the condition of the parking brakes..

Most likely after all this above ^^ was done is that everything inside the parking brake housing will be seized and rusted to crap.. Thanks Ontario Canada.
