    Parking brake no longer holds vehicle

    Hi all, I had to replace the left rear wheel bearing recently, which was a success. I took my time and it was about a 3 hour job; $150 for the wheel bearing at Pep Boys, so it was not that big of a deal. My problem now is the parking brake. I'm sure I replaced everything as it was, but the parking brake no longer holds the vehicle. It goes straight to the floor when I want to use it; no resistance at all. I'll take the wheel off this weekend and have a look at it but I was wondering if anyone could offer me any idea of what may have caused it. Thanks

    I replaced my rear rotors a couple years back and if I remember, the e-brake cable connects inside the rear rotor for the inside brake shoes and more than likely you forgot to re-connect it inside of the rotor. Probly just need to take that rotor back off and re-connect the cable.

    What was the brand of the rear wheel bearing assembly and part number that you bought from pep boys. Did it give you any fitment issues.

    I must confess, I've still yet to have a look at the rotor; I've just been to busy with work. I bought a Moog rear wheel assembly hub and it seemed to fit alright, removing the old one however was another story, but all in all I imagine it would be quicker if I needed to do it again, so no major complaints.
