It appears if you remove the pin in the lower in of the handle, you can remove the spring and then re-insert a new button. Try and get this part from a junkyard before the dealership....might be a cheap part from them or maybe they want $50 for it....either way, you should be able to replace this yourself.

You have to loosen the parking brake cables so you can pull the handle up as far as it will go. You may have to take the cables off the handle. When you do this if you look down from the front towards the pivot of the handle you'll see a small lever that can be turned, it has teeth on one end a like a flat ball on the other. Slide down the rod and use a screw driver to spin plate around so the flat ball end goes into the hook of the rod. So as you press the button it will move and unlock from the teeth on the gear that stays in place. Reattach your parking brake cables and adjust and the job will be done.

How do you adjust the parking brake on a 2005 ford freestar with disc brakes


There is a cable that you adjust.
If you pull the boot down around the base of the hand brake you will find that there is a cable with a threaded rod, turn the nut on the rod clockwise to tighten the brake, the proper adjustment is to have the brake handle start to engage the park brake when it clicks three times, if you are unable to reach this then you may have to adjust the part brake shoes at rear, there is a small slot at the backing plate of the brake at each well, there is be a little oval rubber plug in it, remove the plug and look inside you will see a little wheel with teeth on it, move that wheel with a flat blade screwdriver in a downward clockwise direction, with the wheel off the ground and the park brake off, when you fell just a little drag on the wheel the adjustment is correct, then recheck park brake adjustment as outlined above

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.


Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.

Adjusting handbrake


Hi, The hand brake is adjusted under the vehicle, just in front of the rearend. It's a cable that splits into a "Y"; you will be able to see the nut you need to tighten. But be warned that these nuts are usually rusted up real good, so it's a good idea to spray the nut and threaded rod for several days before trying to attempt to make any adjustments. If the threaded rod breaks or the nut stripps out then you have to "replace" the entire hand brake cable assembly.
Take care

The handbrake on my 1997 audi a4 avant 1.8 petrol sport slips back down, the handbrake is having the desired effect however as you raise the arm (without depressing the button) there are no clicks and it...


This sounds like the paul spring inside the brake handle broken which would, if this is the case be very cheap to fix. Otherwise, the ratchet quadrant could be worn out from not pressing the button whilst appling the brake. In this event both the paul and quadrant have to be replaced. Not really an expensive job. Maybe an hour labour plus parts.

Drum brake spring location


hi, the spring i think you are talking about will be the spring for the handbrake/parking return where the handbrake comes into the back of the drum there will be two holes one on either brake shoe, just below where the handbrake adjuster is fitted it is verry hard to put it in the holes but it does go eventually....hope this helps
