How can I tell if my emergency brake is damaged on my rear caliper on a 2005 Chevy Malibu maxx


Remove the wheel and have someone depress the e-brake while observing cable operation. The cable should pull the brake arm on the caliper and release the arm when the e-brake pedal is released.

How do i adjust emergency brake on 2004 silverado


With truck running, try putting the truck in reverse, then neutral, try the brake release again. At first the lever pulled out and the pedal didn't move. Then I put the truck in drive, it won't budge, I looked for a break in the cable and saw nothing, it looked fine. I ran to the web site and looked for advice. Meanwhile my wife, who knows nothing but to put gas in a vehicle and go, climbed into my truck and put the truck in reverse and neutral, then released the brake. She got me on this one.

Is the emergency brake on a 2005 malibu maxx lt a disc or drum brake


The emergency brake is just a cable that runs to the rear brakes of the car to actuate the rear brakes, so what ever your rear brakes are.

2004 honda crv brake won't release


Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.

2004 explorer brake light will blink here and there while driving


check and make sure brake fluid is full, if so then the emergency brake has a switch on it that will make the brake light come on. to check this get in vehicle and push emergency brake then release it then take your hand and wiggle the emergency brake peddle and see if the light comes on and off. if so then the peddle is not comming all the way up against the switch this may be solved by just pulling up on the peddle each time the emergency brake is released,
