Default E-brake cable, how is it routed?

Hi, the 95 ssei has a non-working ebrake and I'm assuming something is wrong with the cable, so I went to advanced auto parts'* website to look up cables and they have a bunch....but they have some for the 'rear right', 'rear left' and 'intermediate'. ...even a front cable.

I thought there was only one cable for the ebrake, or am I wrong?

link to cables

Help is appreciated! Thanks!

Vig, it could be an adjustment or a cable. Might be frozen or broken.

Probably better to wait until you can get pictures.

There'* four parking brake cables. Two come from each rear wheel assembly and meet the intermediate cable using 2 "connectors". Then the intermediate cable travels forward and meets the front cable under the driver'* side B pillar at an adjustable connector. Then the front cable travels to the foot pedal. In both of my cars I had to replace one of the two rear connectors. It'* located between the rear wheels offset a little to the right side up in the unibody structure that the rear control arms bolt to. It looks like the black one on the bottom:



Take a peek at this first to see if it'* broken. They're not corrosion resistant and tend to rust.
