When i pull the ebrake and then release it its staying on i have replaced the handle and the main cable from the front to the rear and its still sticking what do i do???? Thanks Travis

adjustment is out, start at rear brakes inspect cable action with wheel off and observe action when handle is engaged. it might have a broken spring there, the handle also has a spring., release brake and use screw driver to push back brakes ,take slack out of line at adjuster and that should be your adjustment. if it gets stuck again its at the brake caliper, wheel cylinder or hardware depending on make and year of car.

Can i adjust e brake @ handle, or do i need to pull rotors and off to do it?

They should be self adjusting. Why are you trying to adjust them...too tight ? Too loose ? may just need new pads as the e-brake uses diff brakes than the hydraulic system brakes. Hope this helps !

How to adjust the emergency brakes?

Slacken off the cable at the e brake handle , check the cable underneath for any adjusters if there are slacken them off also , Next look for little rubber plugs in the backing plates of the rear brakes remove and using a screwdriver or brake adjusting tool wind the adjusters until the wheel is rubbing on the brake shoes get the 2 rear brakes rubbing the same the adjust the e brake at the handle until it clicks 3 or 4 times when you pull it up and that should be about right.
Hope this helps

2005 Outlander has now new rear brake shoes and

Under the center console is a Y in the cable that leads under and around the top/rear side of the brake handle. At the top/rear of the handle is a locknut and threaded shaft to adjust tension.

Be sure to not have any drag on the brakes when you are done adjusting!

Emergency brake on a 2002 Caravan

There should be a cable running underneath the car along the rear axle from one wheel to the other that connects to the cable running to the front emergency brake handle.

Follow the cable until you find the adjustment screws and turnbuckle on the cable.

Loosen the screws holding the turnbuckle tight.
Adjust the turnbuckle until the cable is tight.
Test the brake handle and readjust if necessary.

Some cars have auto adjusting rear brakes which will sometimes re-seat by running in reverse and pushing on the brake several times. Try this first!

If none of the above works, you will have to take off the rear wheels and adjust the brakes manual at the wheel hub.
