    I have a 1999 extended cab 4X4 TRD that had the parking brake cable break on. I have a unique problem. In the process of getting the old cable out of the handle, I broke off the little pin that holds the parking brake handle inside its guide. Now, because the locking plates that keep the brake engaged are not compressed, I am unable to get the handle back in the guide. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this?

    And as far as the broken pin has anyone had any recommendations on what to use instead? The pin completely sheared off and is stuck inside, which I can probably extract with my screw extractor bits.

    iirc if you remove the whole mechanism, you can punch the out from the other side. i'd buy a replacement from the dealer. it's kinda a weird shape and has teeth all on the outside.
