Parking Brake Issue

Last week my retired Porsche Mechanic buddy and I replaced the driver side rear strut. He was pressed for time and we were not able to get to the other one 'til today.
(btw - the HF ball joint separator 99849 worked like a champ!)
We did not undo the parking brake turnbuckle when we did the left side, but did today.
Before undoing it, mine looked like the picture:

Now, the turnbuckle is far back in the cavity, and the threaded bolt barely reaches the end of the turnbuckle with the lever down. Before I tear into it at the wheels, may I have some wisdom from the Forum?

TIA!

Nevermind. I found that because we rotated the hub, the cable was bound up after reassembly. I got it done
