what can cause a terrible noise to come from the e-brake cable and the rear pass. wheel? it's like a really loud slapping/banging sound. i'm pretty sure it's the e-brake cable because when i pull the e-brake handle while driving, the sound changes. anything in particular i should be looking for when i take things apart later?

I would remove the drum on that side and inspect the bearings and brake components.

thanks, for the replies, but it was super simple. took the wheel off, saw the cable had come out of it's holder, put it back in, and it was fixed. i wish everything was a 5 min fix....
