Right next to the breaker. Right now the cable is not in its bracket. I tried to pull it up with pliers and I got it up a bit more. I got underneath the truck and found the cable and tried to shove it up into the cab and that helped a bit moe as well. I removed the rubber piece on the parking brake pedal so I could raise it higher so the bracket would come closer to the cable and that helped a little. But I need another 1/8 of an inch or so and I cant get it there. Any ideas on what I can do to fix this problem?
Follow the cable backward until you find the adjusting nut. Loosen the nut. Hook the cable to the pedal assembly. Readjust the nut.
