1998 SW2
Default 1998 Saturn sw2 rear brake emergency brake lever

I have a problem with my 1998 Saturn sw2. The guy we bought it from replaced the rear brakes and really messed things up. The parking brake lever that attaches to the rear brake shoe and the brake cable is bent badly on both sides. It gouged the rear drums and made a big mess of things. I need the emergency brake levers on both sides but am told they are discontinued. The part numbers are 21010533 pass side and 21010532 for the driver side. I tried bending them back to the correct way but they do not really work smoothly and seeing my kids and grandkids use this car I want the brakes right. The vin number is 1G8ZK8272WZ158154. I really need help please! I would buy new or used parts to fix this. I have searched locally and been searching online also. I am in eastern North Carolina and have pay pal, debit or send cashier check from my bank. Had no idea this part would be so hard to get. Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Have you tried a pull yard, like a U-Pull or Pull-A-Part, or whatever they have up there? You can disassemble the rear brakes from any generation Saturn S-series and get what you need, however I would suggest new dowel pins and brake pads if you went that route.

I pulled two entire drum assemblies with the pads and everything for my car, and they work fine. The pull yards are your best bet for getting good Saturn parts, sometimes in near-NOS condition. The idiot who sold me my 98 SW2 put the self adjuster on wrong and i ended up with one destroyed drum and a well shaved piece of metal ground into an elliptical drum. I swapped both for the evenly worn and still factory sealed units from a 99 SL1.

Saturn was very modular in their design and as far as I know, any S-series drums will work. This would also be a handy time to consider the disc brake conversion.

...
98 SW2 - 184k
04 Bonneville SE - 215k

RIP
99 SL1 - 167k organ donor/future rat rod
99 SL1 - 300k towed to car heaven

You could try any or all of these GM parts outlets at the link. Some of the online outlets have good reviews and some not so good. You'll just have to do research and decide who to trust.
http://oemcats.com/oem-parts/21010533.html#shops

Many of these outlets are wholesale outfits that are run out of GM dealerships. There are a few others in this post (second post by Saturninin).

The parts may be discontinued, but some of these places will be able to order NOS from GM if it is still available.

Can't find the passenger side but driver side: http://www.ebay.com/itm/GENERAL-MOTO...ZW2mPc&vxp=mtr

Best bet is to find a junkyard that has the car and lets you take off the parts, I'd be surprised if any yard bothered to list something as small/obscure as that lever even if they technically have a bunch of them. Can find junkyards here: http://car-part.com/

The proper way to fix a S-Series automatic is to replace it with a 5spd O:)

1998 SW2
Default Re: 1998 Saturn sw2 rear brake emergency brake lever

Thanks everyone for the help. I got the parts used and now everything works just fine. We really like the car and I have fixed several things on it. It has 177,765 miles on it. I have one other problem with it which I will be posting in a new thread. Any help on it would be appreciated. There is a snatching feeling coming from the back of the car when it shifts. This only happens when we have a load of stuff in the back of the wagon or the back seat has a couple of passengers in it. I really don't feel it is the transmission as it has been checked, fluids changed and the spin on filter changed twice in the past 5000 miles. I have replaced the motor mounts ( used the good ones ), replaced the dog bone struts also. I was wondering if it could be a strut or the traction bars or the like me. It is a very noticeable jolt when it does happen. Thanks for any help or info you can give me.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
