ACTION:
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Remove the parking brake cable bolt. (Figure 1)

Remove any existing grease from the cable guide and cable (in this area only) by wiping clean with a suitable service towel.
Install the cable guide onto vehicle by inserting the locating tab of the guide into the center of the plastic insert and reinstalling the parking brake cable bolt. Torque to 17 lb-ft (23 N-m).
