Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy
After incredible frustration I was able to force the rear rotors off of my 2001 Jimmy with internal parking brakes. I the placed the new rotors in the oven to heat and expand them, the emergency brake collar in the freezer to shrink it. It was still tight as hell and I can't figure out how to access the adjuster after it is all installed. I would love a step by step description of this process
Hi from the uk not too conversant with your model ? BUT here in uk the same type of rear calipers for hydraulic disc brakes and a seperate set of brake shoes operate the park brake/s which is internal of the rotor ?? thebrake shoes will have an adjuster manually adjustment when rotor/drum is in place ? so if you look at the area between the top of shoes you may see a threaded rod with a serrated round wheel which when turned on thread will move shoes out one way and in the other ? so to fit rotor you must rotate this wheel so shoes close up enableing to fit rotor/drum over shoes easily ? then secure rotor with screws?? if fitted then you adjust ppark brake shoes by turning with a flat screwdriver via a hole which is/should? be in rotor and will turn in line with this adjuster? tighten brake on then turn back notch by notch till rotor turns free or just? do this b4 you fit the disc pads then repeat on other brake assy on other side? re assemble discpads and pump brakes till hard this then leaves the park brake cable to adjust if req'd if so pull p/brake it should come up approx 4 or 5 clicks to fully lock of brake this allows for what is known as reserve travel left on cable to apply as brake shoes wear ok? hope this helps?
