Question about 2005 Dodge SRT-4
Emergency break will not hold anymore. Car will creep down steep incline of driveway
If you have disc brakes in the rear it is very simple. The rear disc has a inner drum that has small brake shoes. These shoes rarely wear out. To adjust it take off the rear tire. Inside the rear of the unit is a little rubber plug. Remove it. Inside is a clicker that can be adjusted with a small screwdriver. One way on the clicker will tighten the other loosen. Spin the rear wheel hub until you feel it tighten as you move the clicker expander. You will feel the hub getting tigher harder to turn and hear the pads making contact with the inner drum. Repeat on the other rear drum. They are supposed to be self adjusting, but I find this not true.

This type of e-brake should actually adjust each time you engage it. If it no longer holds,the e-brake shoes may need replacment, or the friction surface they contact maybe rusted and not able to hold properly. I recommend you see your mechanic about this. Contact me nd let me know how you make out, or if you need further help.
