Emergency Break

Does anyone have a picture of what the Emergency break looks like from a 1999 Jeep Cherokee? I'm guessing mine came apart as it just stopped working and none of the cables are seized.
Cheers
Steve

What part of the emergency brake do you need to see to compare to your break on your brakes?

I have attached the picture.
I'm not sure. When I put on the break. Nothing engages.

The hanging hook should be identical to the other side. It's likely not pulling enough to engage because only one side is pulling. Probably needs to be adjusted after you fix it too.

So there are two cables coming from the hand break in the jeep?

There is one cable from the handle to about the rear seat area of the undercarrage and then it splits into two cables.
