Default parking/emergency brake

Hello all.

I'm new here and trying to help my father out with his 2004 Ram 3500 problem. His parking/emergency brake is currently disengaged. How much work is involved to fix it? It is completely unhooked as one of the mounting brackets under the truck broke. How long would this take to fix (ball park) and where do we begin? Thanks all.

Both he and I are going to check in using the same ID, just so you know... Cheers.

Geoff

Gonna need a little more info than what you gave us.

There is a weld that broke. I think my dad said it was the coupler.

A weld that broke?
Could be on any of the brackets.
If you want us to give you some help with this we are going to need something more than vague descriptions.
Pictures maybe.
Look at it yourself so you can tell us EXACTLY what's broken.
