Parking brake adjustment on 2009 traverse

Prior to replacing front brake pads, the parking brake went completely to the floor and would not release. Although the parking brake was engaged, the tires rolled when the car was on the lift.

There is an adjuster on the driver's side. It is on the cable near the rear fender well.

SOURCE: parking brake pedal goes to floor

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

The parking brake release cable on my 1997 dodge grand caravan is broken and the brake is stuck in the engaged position. The entire cable assembly (about 12 inches long) has dislodged somehow so there is...


I had the same thing. just remove the cover from under the steering wheel and you can see the ratchet release lever. You can also remove the metal cover that is under the plastic cover for more visibility. now just reach in with a bit of stiff wire with a hook on the end and pull the lever back to you. that is all the cable does, and voila, the brake is released. now you just have to remember not to push it down again (I did!)

    How to replace brake pads on 2006 oddesey


    Raise and secure on stands after breaking loose the lug nuts and parking brake on for front pads.. Remove wheels and spread old pads back to push cylinders back in their bores on calibers to allow for thickness of new pads. Remove the 2 sliding claiber retaining bolts and rotate caliber out of mount and secure with wire, boungie cord, or rope to take weight of caliber brake hose. Remove old pads, install new, and reassemble in reverse order. Lugs on alloy wheel should be torgued to 95 foot lbs. Block front wheels, release parking brake,and do the back ones the same way. After completing, pump brake pedal slowly several times to seat new pads. If you move the MPV without pumping first, you will have no brakes to stop. If brake fluid level is high in master cylinder, you will need to take some out first to make room for returning fluid from caliber pistons being returned to their bores prior to any brake work. Rotors should be replaced or turned if scored or warped to have better clapping of pads to rotor surface.

    Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


    Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
    PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
    1. Raise vehicle.
    2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
    3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
    4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
    5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
    6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
    7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
    8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
    9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
    10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
    NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
    1. Raise vehicle again.
    2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
    3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
    CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
    1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
    2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
    3. Lower the vehicle

    Parking brake pedal goes to floor


    Hello;
    The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.
    Thanks;
