is there a special tool to remove the pb cable from the rear brake drum housing?? looks like just a little round clip thing that is just pushed in at the factory and locks there. i gotta get them out without destroying them. thanks

all u should have to do is just pull the rear drums off and take the brakes apart when u put them back together just leave the parking break disconnected i had to do that with mine because my own stupidity i pulled the e brake and it engaged and the cable snapped and i was 8 miles from home.

lets just say i had 2 do brakes that weekend on my 1990 gt

What I do is put a small hose clamp (fuel line size)over the barbs of the park brake cable,& tighten the clamp enough to compress the barbs so they will fit thru the hole in the backing plate.
