Default 2005 Mustang e-brake broken

So I went to engage my e-brake the other day and there was no resistance. I got the car up on a lift and saw that the line that runs to the drivers side brake has snapped. The attachment shows a picture that I found online of what I'm talking about(the line that runs to the drivers side after the bracket is what broke).

I haven't really had any luck finding the proper part and I really don't want to buy the whole e-brake assembly. Is it possible to just buy the one piece or do they only sell the whole thing?

I'm stationed out here in Guam so I'm doing my best to find the thing locally at a generic auto parts store rather than order from a Ford parts place and wait at least a month to get it but I'll do what I have to do.

I had mine go out a few months ago; i took out the whole assembly and took it to an e-brake repair shop (actually, they repair cables for bicycle brakes, wire-acceleration cables, etc...) they might help if there's one of those shops near you.

Else if I'm not mistaken, you'll have to buy the whole assy., which is +$100

The driver's side cable also broke on my 2005 Mustang because the cable was routed too close to the exhaust and it melted the cable to the nylon sleeve so the rear cable on the driver's side would not move. To get the brake to hold I just pulled up harder on the handle and it put more stress on the frozen cable, which finally broke.

The new cable itself is fairly standard, but has the right attachments on both ends and a mounting bracket/tab in the middle that holds it away from the exhaust. You could probably fabricate something, but why not just buy the right part. I got mine from an online Ford dealer in the Dallas area because it was about 20% cheaper than the local dealer price. The one month wait for mail order may be worth it compared to having a local shop handyman try to fabricate something that is almost right.

Good point. I'll try to find it online and wait forever. I'll feel better knowing I have the correct part.
