Hi all 2009 cobalt LS 4 door owner since new
Hey guys like the title says I have a 2009 cobalt ls 4 door that Iíve had since July of 2009. When I got the car it only had 23 miles on it!
Anyways now itís 9 years old with just under 70k on it. For 7 years I had very little maintenance on the car that needed to be done, just the occasional brakes, tires and oil changes really.
Then the front wheel bearings went so my dad and I replaced both of them, then a year later the downpipe developed a large crack in it, after getting an estimate from 3 places we ended up replacing the front struts, downpipe, middle exhaust pipe as well as the muffler.
Now the emergency brake cable has failed. A month or so ago I was driving home and could hear a noise coming from the car. We thought it was the front cvdís so we replaced both of them. On the test drive after to make sure the sound was gone my dad thought he heard that the rear wheel was loose. After doing some research I found that it was an emergency brake cable issue. So I took the wheel off and didnít notice anything until going to put it back on. Thatís when I noticed the wheel weight was hitting the cable itself and had already put a good size indent in the cable.
My brother in law and I ended up noticing that the rubber covering on the cable had failed so we stretched the cable as much as we could so my dad and I could hold off replacing the cable as my car is an automatic anyway.
Well this weekend the noise is back on left turns were the car leans. If anyone can help with information on how to replace the emergency brake cable please let me know. Iíve already google searched it and have also checked this forum as well.
