Volvo 240/740/760/780/940/960 1990-1998



The cable operated emergency brake is a complete separate brake system acting only on the rear wheels. When the lever in the vehicle is pulled up, cables running to the rear of the vehicle actuate 2 sets of brake shoes. These shoes expand against the machined surface inside the rear brake disc. The system must, however, remain in proper repair and adjustment so that it will hold the vehicle when parked and be available for emergency use if needed.
