My parking brake barely works, which creates a major problem when we are in the mountains! I tried adjusting the cable by extending it at the handle (not fun because of close quarters) and helped only slightly.

Do I need to replace the whole cable or is there another issue?

Just FYI, bought a AM148465 brake kit and AM140806 seal kit and completed yesterday. JD technician warned me not to be drinking when I did it, but it really was not that bad (other than I broke a bolt and had to remove the housing a second time to remove the bolt).

He also said to make sure it has hydraulic oil to the bottom weep hole on the discs will not last long. Overall, job is done and the brake works great.
