Custom parking brake cables

Postby Adam » Thu Jun 28, 2018 1:01 am

Has anyone ever made their own parking brake cables? Mine are shot (one is literally gone), and they are NLA from Nissan. Used ones are impossible to find.

For the X or the Pathy? Are your ends still good?

2002 Xterra are still available from Rock Auto - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nis ... cable,1696

1994 Pathfinder are still available from Rock Auto but it looks like suppliers and supply are dwindling - https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog/nis ... cable,1696

Find something with about the same length cable and figure out how to make it interface with the brakes.

Pathfinder, I checked rock auto but they're only drum cables and the way they mount to the backing plate is different. I'll look into some other ones when I get back from Halifax.

Maybe find the part number for the backing plate or the "actuator thingy" and see if it was also used on a newer vehicle that you can order cables for?
