Question about 2000 Ford Focus
I am always getting it adjusted during each service BUT after 6 or 7 applications it needs to be done again - so i want to do it myself in between services
Hi from uk for your info the rear brakes assy's are auto adjust whether they are disc or drum brakes so h pe the garage are not adjusting the h/brake cable each time ? if so then the auto adjust will not operate due to cable holding the auto adjust mechanism and so the as brakes wear the auto adjust that takes up wear does'nt ? but you are pulling h/brake hard on to apply park ? and actually streching cable you should release cable then pump footbrake and provided?? theauto adjust and lever are not seized brakes will adjust and also will/should improve footbrake ie less travel and more positive then you can reset cable as per h/book hope this helps and is easy diy especially if you follow haynes or other manual ?
