To get the rear brakes completely off, the parking-brake cables must be disconnected. Once the backing plates are removed from the axle housing, the cable retainers are unbolted from the unibody, then the cable ends are removed from the balance bar that connects to the parking-brake lever. This is located in the transmission tunnel and is much easier to access with the driveshaft removed. After the cable ends are disconnected, the cable housing is detached from its mounting bracket by pressing a 13mm box-end wrench over the retaining fingers.
