E-brake adjuster nut


NAXJA Forum User
alberta, canada
I can't break my e-brake adjuster nut free. There's no visible corrosion. I don't have air tools, and when i try to turn it to break free, the piece of threaded rod and the cable retainer flex so much that I seem to lose all my turning power on the nut. I'm trying to back it off so i can run new cables for a disc brake swap. Any ideas?

wedge a screw driver or flat bar between the two cables. A deep well socket or ratching wrench will let you easier get a new bite while keeping torque on the screw driver.
Soak it down with PB blaster or similiar penatrating oil also.
