The park/emerg. brakes should be integrated with the rear brake rotors. To replace them involves removing the calipers and brackets. You should be able to slide the rotors off. You may have to back the park brake shoes off with the shoe adjusters to remove the rotors due to the rust lip that often develops within, but they should slide off once freed. Hope this helps.

    I really appreciate the "inappropriate" rating, couldn't have been a "Thanks for trying"?. The fact is, that most E450s and F450s even F550s have rear disk brakes with internal park brake drum and shoes. I should have assumed you have a transmission/drive shaft mounted park brake drum? If you could have been a bit more descriptive,"Emerg. Brake Drum Removel(removal) on E450"(what year ?) . one might have provided you with more useful information. Again thanks again for the rating.

For the Honda CRV 2004, the driver's side automatic window does not go up or down but all other ones do. Please advise.


Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.

How to adjust parking brake


Depends if there is rear disc brakes, if so the emergency is self adjusting, if there is drum brakes you can adjust the emerg buy the adjuster cable that runs between both rear wheels.

Is there a speacil way of removel of rear drums on 98 civic


Nothing special, make sure your brakes are adjusted all the way in (backed off). If the shoes are in the normal position, ie (very close to the drum as they should be) and if any ridges or groves exists, the drum can not come off over the shoes. You have to back the shoes off all the way to create a gap then the drum can come over any groves, or ridges. Also check your em. brake make sure it is off. Once you have the shoes backed off, the em. brake off, you might have to smack the drum on the edge with a good sized hammer, not so as to bend it but you are going more for shock, to break any rust away.

A light came on in my van it is the (P)with an!mark right above it,I know it is the emerg brake light but my brakes seem to be fine, and the light will come on then go off etc...it has happened a few times...


This may indicate that your rear brakes are wearing out.

Go somewhere and have the rear brakes checked for run out.

Rear brake service is usually reasonably priced. Your van is old enough that it might be overdue for new shoes and some drum machining.

Good luck and be careful.

Does a 1995 bmw 3series have handbrake shoes situated under the hub


The handbrake shoes are in the drum. They use a dual rear brake system. The discs are operated by the pedal and the handbrake operates the shoes in the drum.

What do you mean "under" the hub?


Adjusting the emerg brake is difficult. You have to adjust the brakes in the drum first, then the cable.

I have a 2006 saturn ion, my daughter has it at college in pennsy, she parked it on a driveway last night before it snowed and she engaged the emerg brake since it was a sloped driveway, today she went to...


Have her try putting it into drive, attempt to go foreward, plant her foot firmly on the brake, put it back into neutral, then try to release hand brake. Other than that, the only thing she can do is to try and warm up brake cables (shielded part near the backing plates) with a hair dryer.(in park, so it dosen't roll over her) This generally happens when water gets into cable shield and freezes Once free, spray some wd40 or other solvent into cable opening and on cables themselves.
