The pin that holds the parking brake cable to the parking brakes/expander fell out due to some negligence from me and Iím not sure what would be the best way to put it back together. When I reassemble it, it just falls out again. Iím thinking soldering or maybe liquid steel/jb weld. What do you guys think?

Was it peened in the first place? I cannot remember if the pin is held in place by the sides of the other part of the expander.

Is it possible to wham it with a cold chisel and expand it?

Iím not sure, but it just falls out now. Thinking of crimping the sides/edges or maybe use liquid steel or solder.

I see a pin, a bracket and a cable. Is it part of the cable that fell off? What kind of car is this for?

It seems like we are missing something here. Is there supposed to be a retainer of some sort or another part that holds the pin in place? Knowing the make and model of car would help.

I'm thinking it may look something like this.

On older Mercedes the pin is retained by the parking brake cam/lever mechanism.... its hard to explain. The mechanism folds over its self and is a pain to get hooked up.

Example of W124:


The pin is between the two yellow arrows, its that half circle in the middle of that wishbone-shaped lever.

That design is very similar to my E34 and shouldn't let the pin fall out. Something has to be worn or misplaced I would think.

Once correctly assembled it shouldn't fall out... however getting it assembled and not having the pin fall out is tricky.

I think what happened was the connection on the cable portion, stretched out. So maybe I should try to crimp that part back? Or maybe liquid steel.

Actually with this picture you cannot see it because this pin part connects to the cable. Maybe Iíll just look on the other side and see how itís done. But I believe they say itís held in place is, the cable portion that connects to the pin, is crimped down on it.

The pin is visible (at least part of it)... here's another look:



The pin should be a slip-fit and unfortunately makes is difficult to get everything in place.
