      Comments about Carquest Wearever Parking Brake Cable:

      I bought this as one of the pair of parking brake cables that needed to be replaced on my F350 Superduty. Neither cable fit the truck like it was supposed to. The end that fits on the parking brake fit in the hole. That's the easy part. Then pull the spring back and insert the clipped housing end in the bracket. Release the spring and viola!, the spring is too long. It actually keeps the cable pulled too far and tries to bend into a small arc. Both sides did it, so it isn't a fluke. I thought I could remedy this by hooking it all up and maybe then, the tension in the line would straighten it out. On I plodded and routed the lines and got them up to the frame bracket. Another clip end on the housing that is supposed to just drop into the hole. No dice here either. The rubber washer keeps the clip from going in far enough to engage. Once that was corrected and the lines were in place, I slipped the cables into the connection with the cabe to the parking brake pedal. Wait. Read that again. I slipped them in. Not enough tension on them. So now they are installed and the pedal goes to the floor without ever engaging the parking brake. Now I've either got to replace them with factory ones or find a way to adjust the slack out. These things are not worth the money you save.

      Comments about Carquest Wearever Parking Brake Cable:

      This cable was used on a 01 F350 super cab 7.3 HD.. The left side cable was a direct easy no brainer fit..

      The right side on the other hand does fit but the cable needs to be about 3-4" shorter to get a good routing.. Basically the outer housing ends up have to much slop and you can feel the cable inside dragging when operated..
