    too short parking brake cable ( brand new )(picture)(problem)

    hi everyone. i'm in the process of reasembling my rear end mecanical and now is the time for my parking brake system.

    everything is new,
    wheel bearing, FAG
    hub oem
    brake shoes FEBI
    springs and bolt ATE
    parking brake cable FEBI
    lever and adjuster oem used

    i just reasemble everything for the e-brake systeme and the cable is loose on the TA. when i pull the e-brake lever in the car i can hear the cable ''take its place'' and then the wheel do not lock that much..even with the incar lever pull at maximum. ( didnt try to adjuster it very much since it seem to be the black section of the cable that seem to short..)

    maybe i have route the cable wrong ?
    this appen on both side...

    can someone help me with this please?

    the grey stuff is anti-seize.


    You need the clips for the parking brake cables to hold them in place. They screw onto threaded studs on a bracket the bolts to the sway bar link. You can see mine here next to the sway bar link
