  • emergency brake button broke

    Finally I get to ask a question!! Folks I have a 97 cherokee, 4.0, 5 spd manual and the button on top of my emergency brake broke off. How do I replace it? Can I just unhook linkage and pull button out or do I have to remove handle to get it out?? Help please. It works I just can't set it unless I pull out on linkage.

    You're going to have to pull the center counsel out in order to remove the brake lever. You can get a new one from the dealer, PN 52078 943AC or go to the U-pull-it or Pick-a-part and get another from a wrecked Jeep.

      I have the console out, the heater vent to the back off and everything else. So I will have to take the whole handle off and replace it?

        Yes. It's far simpler to replace the handle than get another handle and try to remove the button mechanism. The factory only offers the handle/button as an assembly.

          Thanks I will go to my local junk yard and look for one. Will I need a 97 or will any year work? There is a 98 sport in the junk yard near me.

            For sure, '97 to '01 will work. If they'll let you take it in with you, take the old one and see if any of the earlier years might work.
