Decided to pull the E-brake handle and the front cable. The catch lever and rod was rusted shut and not allowing the lever to move freely, I got it free and cleaned. Looks good and everything is moving freely.
Problem is the catch lever spring is broken and will not push the lever down to engage the slots in the pull lever.
Is there a fix for this? I'm going to head to the local hardware store and see if I can find a spring.
