If you go under the truck and look at the park brake cable you will see a steel rod with threads and a couple of nuts on it, tighten the inner nut and then lock down the adjustment with the outer. You want the park brake to start to hold after 3 clicks of the rachel or about 3 inches of travel.

How can I turn off the rear parking lights


Normally all parking lights are controlled by the light switch. First turn turn on the parking lights and second turn turns on the head lights.

Are you sure it is not your break lights staying on? if this is your break lights - look at break pedal for break light switch staying on or not adjusted correctly. Does your car battery gets drained from your break lights staying on?

How do you adjust parking brake


The parking brake lever usually activates a cable that is attached to the rear drum brake. You can look for the connection at the parking break lever in the car and there many be an adjustment nut that you can tighten - this is only a small adjustment as is getting under the vehicle and just tighten up the nut. Typically, if the parking break does set the break firmly with a small push - pull (depending on the type) is means your break pads are getting worn down.

Do the rear axles have to be removed to replace or adjust parking break


No they do not. You adjust the park brake cable under the truck tighter to adjust the parking brake.

I have 2000 toyota corolla. Today I had rear wheel cylinder (both) changed. Also the break shoes and Pads (front). After that change, My parking break is not working. Will the parking break is going to...


the guy who knows the answer to that question is the guy who put the brakes back together. he should have adjusted the shoes out, or hopefully replaced them and adjusted them, so that the brakes are good and hence the parking brake will also be good. if not then something is amiss. but applying the parking brakes does theoretically turn the adjuster so as to move the shoes out.

Hi . I have 2004 ford 150 ineed to adjsut barking brake from the wheel how Ican do thes thanks alt


Your going to have to remove the wheels because there is no "knock out plug" to get to the adjuster wheel. I highly recommend you do this also to make sure the parking brake shoes arent cracked (they are known to do this over time from being heated up). If there is a rubber plug on the backing plate you can usually get away with using a "flatblade" screwdriver to make your adjustments. Just DO NOT over adjust them or you'll create yourself a world of hell!

The brake pedal has an adjustable sensor attached to the pedal arm. To adjust the sensor, you'll have to crawl under the dash. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjustment nut, then re-tighten the lock nut. If necessary, replace the sensor.

Parking brake efficency too low


The parking break is a stand alone cable that can be adjusted if you climb under the vehicle. depending on your parking break location in the cab will help you better locate it under the car IE if you set your parking brake using a handle in the center of the vehicle cab, the wire is close to center under the vehicle, if you use a handle or foot pedal its on the driverside of the vehicle and Y's off to the passager side and driver side rear break

follow the cable and you will find the adjuster bolt, just tighten it to take up slack in the cable, if there is no slack you will increase the efficency of the parking break.....Dont over tighten it though cause this can cause drag in the rear breaks and shorten the lifespan of the break shoe or pad
