On the caliper of my 07 BB7 mechanical brake the wire keep slipping out; is there anything I can do to make it stay tighter? I tried tightening the screw as much as possible but it still slips out.
Any ideas?

Is your cable fixing plate missing/ oriented incorrectly? Should look somthing like this:

This happened to me, the cable actually dug a little channel in the lever arm on the caliper. Loosen the pinch bolt, wrap the cable around the bolt 180deg. and re-tighten it. You should be golden.
