Re: '05 Base Parking Brake Cable

I'm guessing something is making/letting the cables untwist, thus making a larger diameter. After connecting to the pedal end, just before sliding into the backer plate try to twist the cable to make it tighter (smaller diameter) before connecting to the brake pull lever. Then after several uses, take it off at that back end and see if it can be tightened anymore after stretching. Don't go all Hulk on it, just twist to get any slack out. That's what I'd do if you don't see anywhere on the old ones where something is being pulled into the sleeve at either end to cause the locking.
