Ok, so I’m retarded. In my last post, I bitched because I couldn’t get the brakes disassembled on my car. Turns out I was reading the repair manual incorrectly. There were two pages with several rows of pictures with captions saying how to proceed, and I was reading them across both pages, rather than across each page individually. So the parking brake cable disconnect was actually several steps further down from where I was supposed to be. Looks like I’ll be pulling the wheels off again tonight and doing the job right this time.
