My 84 190D has a m/t 5, and the e brake lines look like they have rusted or broken off. How should I tackle this? Or better left up to a shop?

No disrespect intended , but if you have to ask how to deal with brake components I strongly urge you to get the professionals to do the job.

I have re done the entire brake sys myself on my van, including custom flared brake lines. And have installed speed bleeders and self flared brake lines on my bros 300SD. All I'm asking is how I should tackle this issue, as mine is not a US car. Items on this car bolts included, are severely different from my 190E. I just needed to be pointed in the right direction here.

I have an auto, its difficult without the proper tools. You have to disassemble the entire e-brake hardware sitting behind the rear rotors. Also might as well check and replace worn out brake linings.

to add up, normally cables just don't fall-off, unless the PO installed longer wheel bolts that wrecked the e-brake hardware, speaking from experience. :(

Ouch that's not good! So for the most part this may be a somewhat simple fix?
