    PR 80 E Brake Question...

    Quick question... and it's NYE, so you better not respond for at least a couple days!

    I was doing some work and removed the center console... noticed this...

    Didnt look right so I got under and was looking at where the cable connects to the axle.

    Driver side looked normal

    But passenger looks odd. Looks like there is supposed to be a little split ring welded on, and maybe there was at some point?

    Regardless of the axle, that cable sheathing should be tight and secure. I would start by watching it while someone else pulls the ebrake just to make sure it's working. If it's not, you can probably fab something up to make it work or even add a brake hose clip. You might even be able to fan out part of it with pliers to keep it from sinking in like it did.

    Here's a pic of an OEM JK and WJ.

    You need to go deeper (consult your local doctor).

    Haha! Yes deeper!

    I messed around with it, I think the problem is when I push it all the way in, then the hook that grabs on the actual brake arm of the axle goes slack (or limp), so the spring cant maintain and tension.

    Pry them out first. That spring steel clip should be bell shaped. When it goes deep enough (after the Bob dole pill) they should just pop into place.

    The passenger side needs to be the same as the drivers side, ask dynatrac for another sleeve/extension/coupler and weld it on

    ^^^This. You’re supposed to have a spacer both of them. I’ve tried welding them and haven’t had great luck. When you get a replacement, try putting a hose clamp around the split ring to prevent it from falling off. A zip tie might work but I’d trust a hose clamp more.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
