My parking brake hasn't worked, period, most of the 4+ years I've owned it.
I took the console off today to try to tighten the cable near the lever, but as I engaged it to get the console up and off, the spring blew. WTFEver.
I found what I think is a decently priced replacement, OEM, but shipping made it cost $58 total, so not such a great deal.....
Anyway, if anybody has problems with this (and you will):
(I know this has been addressed, like by RJenx, but I thought it could use a fresh bump)
