Ok, I am fighting a strut insert now. Just like all the post above, this thing is putting up a fight. I've done everything but chain it to a tree and car bumper or drill a hole in the bottom to pound it out. This could be worse than the spindle pin!
How do you remove the e brake cable from the two attachment points under the car? I was able to finally get the two retaining clips out (what a bitch) but still can't get the cable out from between the bracket that is on the car.
