Sometimes there is a little manufacturing bur inside the round fitting that the emergency brake cable passes through. If your e-brake cable does not want to seat into this fitting, please use a rat tail file to clearance it. Alternatively one can take some sand paper and reduce the diameter of the cable housing to allow it to seat nicely. Cheers!
