Default Park brake cable woes

Hi,

I cannot at all remove the park brake cables from my 240. It seems they are stuck inside the car near the holes in the floor. How else do you get them out?

Reason for removing: Removal of the complete rear axle including brakes

Thank you

Thanks for that, but I still cannot remove the cables from where they enter the holes in the floor. Must they be removed from inside the car?

I haven't removed a emergency brake cable since 1990s, on a VW Rabbit

Brake shoe kit with pics to be expanded.

Inside vehicle, cable would have to be unsecured, and following cable to rear axle, there may be clips holding them in place, which have to be removed.

At axle, one should be able to remove cable in some manner.

Is this enough info?

If you're swapping axles, just cut the 2 cables. There is a rubber grommet on the cables that needs to be removed before pulling them out. Have someone help you push the cables back inside car and when you pull cable back, you will see the rubber grommet. Slide the grommets off each cable and then attempt to pull cables out again.
