    Sometimes when I go set the parking brake, its like it takes no pressure to push it down and then it will slowly rise back up. Other times it works fine. I feel like a retard when I go to set the parking brake and the damn thing pops back up.Thanks.

  2. Sounds like a cable is binding up,or the spring in the pedal
    assembly is going bad.Take all the cables loos and move them indevidualy,to see it one is binding up.If so LMC sells all of these cables.
    Hope this helps,good luck.

    I have the same stinking problem with mine. I got the shop to look at it and they said that I had a brake line that was shredding and bulging in the sleeve. Got the part from LMC. Its worth it.
