You will have to pull the floorboard to fish the new cable and housing
through. This will give you the opportunity to clean out your bilge
and inspect the components (other cables and e-brake parts) for damage
or wear too.

Steve, John is a smart guy that's for sure. And like he says you need to look at your parkingbrake cables. He is correct, look at them good.Then you need to order a set and replace them. I think you can get stainless now and that would be the way to go. If you are gonna pull the floor make sure everything that you may need to do is done then. Get that parking brake working good. If your seat has factory bolts you will need that special socket for those too.
Have fun in the bilge, lord knows what you will find inthere. Before you start, you know working on your Amphi will be a big painyou know in advance it is gonna be hard to reach hard to see and hard to get the bilgen front seat reinstalled.
But when your done and you swim your car again You will be as happy as a dog in a bone tree and it won't seem so bad then. Have fun, Tommy in Tampa</font>

Steve,

I have actually done this to my car. You can pull it through for sure,
but it takes a little patience and doing. I connected the old cable
with the new cable and pulled it all the way through. I remember using
some tape to smooth things out, but it works and only takes about 30
minutes.

Have fun!

Mark
