i would guess its frayed, might have to pull it out and replace it. i remember my xg van doing something similiar when the handbrake cable started to fray



Johnny the boy has done it again, this time it was a scrubber..

Just be warned though, the front section is no longer available from ford (obsolete now). I had the handbrake cable (whole thing) replaced recently, and the only new part they could get was the rear section. By the way, if you let me know, I can sell you an entire new cable (only on the car for a month). But be quick, cause the car its on should be getting taken away next week.
