E is a cable under the car that runs from under the driverside firewall towards the rear where it splits to each rear wheel at the split there is a threaded sleeve turn it till it pulls the cable tight but be careful it isnt to tight. if that does not solve it the cable nneds to be replaced or the rear brakes need adjusted or replaced I would visually check the brakes on the rear 1st. most times the brakes are worn out which is why the E-Brake seems out of adjustment.

Check the wear on all of your brake pads. If that is not it then look at the emergency brake switch on the back side of the emergency brake, it may be stuck or need adjusting.

How do you adjust the emergency brakes on a 2001 f150 supercrew?


If you have disc brakes, there is no adjustment and the emergency/parking brake as no effect on pedal travel. The emergency/parking brake uses regular drum type shoes working in a small drum inside the rotor and is independant of the service brakes.

How do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford taurus. I replaced rear brake pads, cylinders and drums, but now have no emergency brake so need to know how to adjust.


FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

Emergency brake adjustment


I have a 2000 4x4 expedition and the parking brake has its own set of shoes. They are located behind the rear disc rotor. You have to remove them to get to the shoes. You will have to release the parking brake to get the rear rotors off.

Emergency brakes adjust


first, jack up the rear and adjust the brake shoes themselves, then you may have to adjust the e-brake cable underneath.. sometimes the adjustment is on the e-brake handle....

Adjusting emergency brakes on 2006 ford freestyle sel awd


I just did mine today, and did not have this problem. I screwed the caliper back in (right side CCW, left side CW) using the autozone loaner tool. No problem once I figured out they were opposite. Did not touch the e-brake at all. They self adjusted as designed and everything works. You need to un-do the adjustment you made if you were able to reassemble.
