hand brake issue


Asked by Jun 10, 2012 at 06:02 PM about the 1987 Nissan Pickup

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 1987 nissan d21 hardbody, and the emergency brake line (in short summary) went into the firewall, is there any other
way i can get that line out without going thru that 1/8th of an inch hole?... i looked under the truck and its all sealed off and i cant
get it from underneath... any ideas????

1 Answer


problem is resolved, used a coat hanger, some ducttape, disconnected rear line from underneath the truck, pushed thru, grabbed with hook and sued duct tape to hold in place while i reconnected rear brake line... took duct tape off, pin was missing from brake handle, replaced with shortened wood screw.... looks and feels brand new... total cost - 0
