    My driver side parking brake bellcrank is sticking, it doesn't pivot freely. Passenger side does pivot freely, with the e brake off, the driver side sticks, pulling hard on the cable releases it.

    How does this pivot? If I remove the rubber bellcrank boot, is there a pivot pin there that I can remove and clean? I assume There is no brake fluid involved?

    I bought the truck last week, a 2002 with 56000KM/35,000 miles, silver SR5 5 speed 4X4 TRD loaded, but PO must not have used the e brake a lot for it to stick like this. It was Krown Rust Controlled every year since new, some gummy crap on the brake parts, but all the cables move freely. The truck still has the original tires on it (plus a set of extra rims/snows), an aluminum TracRack kit, which is a neat option.

    Thanks for any help.

    Mine was doing the same thing, penetrating fluid and move the leavers goin into the drum back and forth until you can pull the ebrake and they move freely. It took me a little over an hour but eventually came unsiezed.

    I assume I'll see what to free up when I remove the rubber guard?
