    Probably either the cable or the e-brake assembly itself. Mine was stretched from hauling on a frozen cable for months, had to bolt in a new handle.

    Maybe the cable self adjuster? It's confusing to how it wokrs, I haven't put thought into the function of it, i have mine off the car now, and the part the cable goes on is self adjusting

    you need a new cable. If there is not tension, the self adjusting mechanism does not work or as you hear it "click"

    DUDE, call around local man! Unless you live in the same town, repair cost will differ.
