You will have no adjustment left on the brake cable adjustment rod. Its rare to have to replace cables unless the brakes have been misadjusted (which happens alot)

I have 2007 Club Car Presedent and recently felt that I have extra travel on brake pedal and now front brakes don't work. How do you remove Brake/Accelarator rubber guard to inspect. Any ideas what I might find. (e.g cable loose or broken). Is going through at this location to inspect the right approach?
Thanks

Go to your rear brake backing plates and you will find a cable coming from the front of cart near pedal area on each side. The adjustment is located at front end of cables.
For a view of your year carts brake pedal and adjustment area go to
golfcartpartsdirect.com
and then choose model and year of your cart and go to brake pedal assembly to view.

Again go to the brake backing plate and front under brake pedal area and see if cable ends have broken or some linkage has broken. Normally cables break or show damage on exposed part? Next would be to check for pedal bearing wear, with sudden play the cross shaft bushings can let shaft loosen suddenly. If no problem showing I would pull brake drums and check for lining wear or damage. All later model CC have self adjusting brakes and normally you wont find sudden extra pedal travel.

On a precident model, too many folks over tighten the brake cable adjustment and break one of the cables, I'd take a look and see if one of the cables is broke.
