I've searched all the brake articles and can't find anything related on this forum.  I'm having a problem releasing the e-brake cable from the caliper.  I can't find any articles or youtube videos on how to do it.   If anyone can explain or direct me to a procedure on how to do this it would be deeply appreciated.  Naturally, I'll need to know the easiest way to reconnect it once I replace the caliper…looks like there is a tension spring and clips involved.


Thank you.

Found a couple of picts since I haven't personally done this.


Attached File  Flex rear brake1.jpg   61.88KB   0 downloads

First pict shows the caliper with the cable and the spring with the linkage

Second pict shows the back with a Torx screw and bolt that look like they hold the assembly to the caliper.


Hope this helps
