d*** Emergency brake

well today I pushed my emergency brake in and it went about halfway down, then I heard a clunk and it just flopped the rest of the way down...now it just locks at the bottom, then if I pull the release then pull it back up, it just flops back down again...any ideas what broke/happened? or how to fix it?

Thanks,
Buck

A guy I used to work with had it happen with one of our tow trucks. The brake popped and the truck rolled into a donut shop!

Luckily nobody got hurt. Apparently that was a "feature" of the mid-80s F350s.

Mine did that a couple of years ago. I think it was more than one piece, so I didn't have to buy it from the pedal all the way back. I had one break on a chevy while I was loading a boat one time. I went swimming, but managed to save it about the time the front wheels went in the water. Last time I left the truck running and trusted the e-brake on a downslope.

yeah...mine is 2 pieces...one piece goes from the brake down under the hood, and the other piece connects there and goes back to my rear wheels...but everywhere i've been said it'd be a week for them to order the part...and I hate waiting...so I just jap-rigged up something to hold it until it breaks again
