this is very helpful, since my leather was torn and i ended up tearing it off awhile back, now that my ebrake cable to my right rear tire is broken, might aswell fix it all at once, aswell as my other brake stuff i'm doing, my car will be all braked out haha

AHHHH HELP

When I go to thread the cable into the new assembly... it wont go in.
The inside of each assembly has 3 right angles, and one like... notch, maybe a 45 degree angle. The cable seems to be made for that, but damned if I can get it to go on.

Is it as simple as PUSH REALLY FARKIN HARD, or am I missing something?

copy one of the pictures in the above post or take a picture of what you are asking, not sure. the above how-to illustrates most of it pretty well.

I didnt use a how-to and was able to figure out the install pretty easily. If i follow what you are asking, there was like a washer/locking thing i had to slightly unbend to install the cable and then rebend it back once installed.
