Talking Help. Parking Brake replacement

Hello everyone. Looking to replace a few parts on the parking brake assembly. I live in the East so I'm looking at some rust welding and I'm sure I'll be cursing it as I don't have a garage.

Parking brake shows light when not engaged. Right rear brake cable is frozen and probably stretched. Left rear pivot is also frozen and I can't locate any parts without calling the dealership which I've managed to avoid happily.

Is this a pain in the A?
Anyone know of where I can locate the proper pivots?
Are there any video's/diagrams available to digest prior to tearing into it?

2004 2.4 4x4 Base

Thank you for everyones help in advance.

MJ

First generation Tacomas brake handle switch sticks. Try shoving the handle in a few times to see if it goes out. Next, break out a ball peen hammer an hammer away on the frozen brake. Once free, reset brake and be prepared to hammer it a few times again to work on freeing it up. Napa has all the parts for replacing cable, not that they are that much cheaper than a dealer.

It's not hard to replace. I had to do the same thing. Be careful shoving the handle in, it broke the plastic around the line that goes from the handle to the spring pivot point when I did that.
