SOURCE: How do you adjust the rear brakes on a 05 kia

Disc brakes are not adjustable. You may have a parking brake that is like a mini- brake shoe in the middle of the rear rotor. Those are adjustable, but tough to get at, and they rust badly. Look to see if your "cable" goes either to an arm that actuates the shoes, or if it goes to the caliper. If it goes to the caliper, you have no parking brake shoes.

SOURCE: My 2002 Kia Sportage dash light is out, I changed

Check the DRL

"OK my dash and marker lights were out because the DRL module had failed.
I bet this is a fairly common problem so...before you go spending big bucks on a new one or even a few on a used one, why not see if the one you have is salvageable?
The Daytime Running Light module is located with other modules on a plate bolted to the driver's side kick panel. It's the biggest, black one and has DRL Module labeled right on it.
Because this is the module that produces the most heat and therefore is the most likely to fail, the motherless dogs who designed the 2002 Rio put it on the left side of the plate so that you have to move a harness and unbolt the plate to get at it. If you've got big shoulders and arms, getting the plate off is going to hurt. If you're left-handed, you're screwed.
Once you've got the module out and have had your crushed ribs bandaged, which were crushed while laying over the door sill to get under the dash, you pop off the module cover and check the solder side of the circuit board for bad solder joints around the main relay connections (that's the big white block on the board).
They run a fair amount of wattage through the relay, so it gets hot when it's on and cools when it shuts down. Over time this crystallizes the solder and forms a circular crack around the connection that gets bigger until it's essentially no longer connected to the circuit board and all your dash and marker lights go dark.
The motherless dog who designed the circuit could have avoided this by using a relay with a higher wattage rating (which would be bigger, making the module larger, but would run a lot cooler), but then we wouldn't have an expensive, consumable part to have replaced by the dealership would we.
Anyway, check the module for any burned components. If everything else looks OK, re-solder the connections (or have a friend who really knows how to properly solder electronic circuits do it otherwise you'll just finish what inadequate design started), pop the module back together, plug it in, test the lights and if working, reinstall it and the mounting plate - and for the love of God put a thick pillow on the door sill this time to protect your bruised ribs.
Hope this proves helpful. It's actually a real easy fix."

I think if the self adjusters are working properly you should be able to push the parking brake pedal (e-brake) to the floor once and release pedal. .

The clutch is a fluid clutch. The only adjustment is to make sure the fluid is full. The ones I have worked on use a combined resoveir that holds brake fluid for both the brakes and the clutch system. So check the fluid in your master cylinder.

How do I adjust the handbrake on 2003 Kia Carnival


I have not checked a kia carnival but worked on most kia cars. There are two hand brake adjustments. One is at the hand brake lever. open up the hand brake cover and look for the nut adjuster where the end of the hand brake cable is attached to. Tighten up that nut until you find a comfortable hand brake position and the brakes locks.

the other adjustment is found at the rear brake drums. you have to remove the tires and tighten the adjusting nut behind the brake plates. there is a small hole, usually covered with a rubberized plug. remove that plug and adjust the brake with a flat screwdriver.

The handbrake adjustment is at the handbrake. Pull off the rubber boot around the hand brake. (it pulls open at the botto of the handle and slips off over it). Next locate the 10mm bolt under the rear cup holder (there may be a little felt in there covering it). Remove the bolt.

Lift the console at the rear, it should pop loose at the front and lift up. You should have clear access to the adjustment bolt. Loosen the 10mm locking nut and this should allow you to adjust the cable.

Turn the adjustment clockwise to tighten the cable and once adjusted, re-tighten the locking nut. Reverse the whole process to put the console etc back together.
