e-brake in cab cable

Recommended Posts

I am looking for the e-brake cable release inside the cab. I have an 86 Comanche  with the foot activated pedal to activate the brake. This would be the pull release lever and cable. 

Thanks,  Jim`

The dashboard handle and release cable is not the same as the XJ.  I did not see Comanche listed. You found it for a MJ?

these guys have em for $104 (?) holy crap https://www.jeepsunlimited.net/86_92_jeep_comanche_parking_brake_pedal_release_pull_handle_cable_knob

 

from a post in 2015: 

The cable broke on mine yesterday. here's how I fixed it.

 

This procedure replaces the cable with a piece of coat hanger wire about 7 inches long. Requires a hack saw, Drill bit slightly bigger than the coat hanger wire, needle noes pliers.

 

1. Remove the t-handle from the bracket

2. Remove any remaining cable from the t-bar and discard

3. Drill a hole through the square rod on the t-handle about 1/4 inch from the end.

4. Cut the plastic housing (looks like a space ship) about 1/4 inch from the L bracket (where the two screws go in) with a hack saw.

5. Remove the cable sleeve retaining the bulb end of cable sleeve, then widen the hole in the bulb end with the drill bit.  

6. Insert the square rod through the plastic bracket then fish about one inch of hanger wire through the hole and twist to secure it in place.

7. fish the wire through the old bulb end

8. install this new assembly into the truck taking care to fish the wire through the hole in the lever and seat the bulb end into it's metal bracket

9. Twist the wire to secure it onto the lever

10. Might require a little bending to ensure it moves smoothly

 

still looking though --- 

 

EDIT -- original part number is 52000861
