SOURCE: 2004 Mercury Mountaineer Emergency Brake Adjustment

Greetings larslabs,
My name is Dennis and I can assist you to finding your parking brake adjustment location.
1) the adjustment is located so that you have to remove your center console floor finish panel (this is the drink holder).
2) raise your parking brake lever and gently pry the plastic tabs from the center console.
3) Once you can see the park brake lever you will see a nut that is turned to adjust the lever so that it has 5 clicks when it is applied.
Glad to be of assistance and thank you for using FixYa. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating (and it keeps my rating up to date). Thank you, Dennis

Durango AWD


The vehicle is always in AWD and that cannot be altered . There is a 3rd diff in the gear box that allows independent operation of the front and rear wheels to prevent drive line wind up . When you select 4WD you lock up that 3rd diff so that both front and rear axles have to turn. This results in drive line torque wind up so the vehicle must not be driven in this mode on hard surfaces as there is no means for the wheels to slip and relieve the torque wind up . To loose the wind up reverse for several yards and any actuators that are trying to move will be able to or drive on slippery surfaces to allow the wheels to slip

It sounds like you have a loose brake shoe inside one of your rear axle brake drums. You will have to remove the rear wheels and brake drums to find out for sure.

My 2004 Mercury Mountaineer will go into gear but will not move. What could be the problem


Your rear emergency brakes could be hung up. Especially if a parking valet or someone else parked it recently.

You need to jack up both rear wheels and then put your car into neutral with the motor OFF. If the rear wheels can not be manually turned it is either the emergency brakes, the differential or the transmission.

The emergency brakes require removing the back tires and rotors. If it is still locked, then it is either the differential or the trans. The driveshaft connects the trans to the differential so remove the driveshaft. If the differential turns without the driveshaft, then the trans is locked up. If the differential does not turn the problem is inside the differential.
