E-brake

Would it be cheap or expensive to replace the e-brake cable?

My one side doesnt work at all. Its the drivers side that doesnt work anymore but the passager side does. I am assuming its broken somewhere and i put it up on the hoist before and tried to scope it out but didnt see anything that caught my eye that looked out of place.

So yes when i "wanna-b-driftin" i can only slide/skid going one way lol
Beyond that, It just seems that i pull my e-brake up really high too, to where the leather peice seperates from the center concosl and it really doesnt grab that good eather, like i will pull it but it will still roll for some amount of distance. (right its not going to stop me immedialty but ya know) But once when i stop i am not moving at all unless if on some steep incline or something.

Blah blah blah more rambling with lots of spelling errors .....Anyrate... Any info?

^^^I'd try that first before you start replacing cables.
