e brake sticking

my e brake has been sticking since its gotten cold out here. its not wanting to engage or disengage if i engage it when its warmer out. has anyone else had this problem and how did you fix it? also its a manual transmission so its kinda hard not to use it sometime.

well i finally got time to go outside and look and noticed the problem. the driver side had a gash in the plastic and in the metal jacket in the line from rubbing on the leaf spring. so moisture was getting in the line and freezing when it was cold. so hopfuly i can just replace the line and be back in business.

Mine has been sticking since new,it eats up the brakes when stuck,Ford replaced the brakes twice and could not find out why it would not release,so now I don't bother using the e-brake .

We have the opposite problem here. the 99 std cab's ebrake doesnt really hold unless you push it ALL the way to the floor. heck i put it in neutral the other night and hopped out and it started rollin down the driveway lol i ran to stop it.. fun? Anyway are these cables adjustable? Cuz it obviously is loose. Brakes work great btw.

If you don't like to work outside in the cold (like me), just throw some wheel chocks in the bed to use while letting the truck warm up.

sounds like your park brake shoes are just out of adjustment, or at least i would check that first. Crank the star wheel adjuster out some if its not frozen already.
