Attaching brake cable!

Hi
Newbie here
I am trying to set up the brakes on my bike, and on the cross brakes the cable seems to have come off from the levers. I cannot for the life of me get them to connect back, any ideas of how to do this? I have uploaded a picture in case it helps, it is the brake on the right in the picture. The black turning part connects to the first silver part but not the second bit with the black rubber!

Thanks in advance

Hi and welcome!
Pull the lever, push the black cable into the lever, release the lever, screw the cable back in by the black knob thing :blush:
The silver and the black knobs have slots for the cable to slide out, make sure the slots are not aligned - so that the cable stays put.
Informative video about v- brakes here.
And here - watch this first, more relevant.

Thank you for the help! Got it sorted :-) Now I just need to get the brakes properly aligned, I have disc brakes so going to look around for some more info. Very helpful Pat
