Default E, Emergency, Parking Brake Cable Connector

The clamped on connector that connects the two sections of E-brake cable between the two rear control arms rusted out.
Does anyone know where to get this?

Edited for search.

Somehow I found it!

It is a 'Brake Cable Connector' and I found it after 2 hours of BC and Google searching on Advance Auto'* site.
If you click the link, it was the black one that broke.

Edit:
P/N is 21126 just incase the link is dated

Any advice as to how you changed it or if that was the right part would be appreciated. The same part just rusted out on my 95 .

That was the right part.

I disconnected the cable at the middle of the car. There is another cottection there with a bolt for adjustment.
With the extra slack it was easier to connect the rear. Then it was just a matter of loosening the middle adjuster bolt all the way, hooking it back up, and tightening it back up.

Hope that helps.

Yes thanks for the advice, i'm gonna order the part today. I saw in your first post that you called it a crimped on connector, is it, if so what tool did you need to crimp it on? thanks in advance.

Yeah, I must have worded it wrong.

It'* simple but hard for me to explain. I'll give it a shot.

The piece is shaped similar to a pen at about half the length..
The middle has an open section and is a little larger than the ends.
The ends are crimped and that is where the cable ends go.

With the old part completely removed..
Take the pat and put the cable end in the center with the cable going through it and pull it so the cable end gets sunken into the crimped outer section.

You'll be able to do one end easily but you'll need slack for the other end to reach and connect. That'* where disconnecting the cable mid-way down the car comes in.

With the extra slack, you can pull the second cable end into the center of the part and pull the cable so the end sinks into the other end of the part.

You'll have to play around with the adjuster bolt and possibly pull on the rear section of the cable to get it back to good tension.

Make sure your E-brake is all the way up too.

Does that make sense?

Yea that makes sense thanks again. I'll try my luck right now. By the way, if anybody else searches this post the Dealership part number is 15714661, and its called a "connector". at my dearship the part costs $2.75. While your under there you might as well change the "rear equalizer" too, because it will be rusted just as bad, that part number is 25515645 and it costs $ 4.33
