Recently had my Flowmasters installed. I noticed when I go over bumps the E brake cable rattles on the exhaust. Whats an inexpensive fix for this? What have you guys done to remedy this?

Thanks

Are you sure it is the ebrake cable? There should be enough tension on it that it doesn't rattle.

You shouldn't have "a lot of play" in the cable. :no:

It should be tight. Adjust the cable and the rattle will go away - and your e-brake will work properly again. :devil:

yes, It will rub the pipe or floor, take your choice. You just need to get the slack out.

Under the driver's side floorboard there is a adjustment nut/stud assembly. Tighten the nut, the cable's slack is removed. The factory arrangement uses two nuts - one for adjustment, the other to keep the adjustment nut from backing off.

Set it and forget it! :cool:
Thanks for the help...... :)
