I started working on the emergency brake swap. I tried for a good 10 minutes to get the factory brake cables out by depressing the tabs and pulling it through before getting the saw out and cutting them off. Not an easy task.

Didn’t get much further than that however, I think I’m missing a bracket for the cables to mount in?

1993 is a one year only E-brake setup. It’s VERY similar to the SN95 cars but slight differences.

Yes, there is supposed to be a bracket there that the sheathed cables clip into.

Unsure if anyone carries that bracket

Edit: LMR does although not a exact replica

I bit the bullet and bought the silly $38 bracket. We have emergency brakes now. It’s becoming painfully obvious now that my side hustle is doing well enough to prevent me from working on the car. Maybe one day I’ll get the motor apart.
