SOURCE: 98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car.

If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.

The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.

The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.

Those are the things you need to look for.

You have to go under the truck, there are cables that are adjustable. Look on the driver side just back of the front seat location the screw adjuster is there.

SOURCE: adjusting emergency brakes on 2006 ford freestyle sel awd

I just did mine today, and did not have this problem. I screwed the caliper back in (right side CCW, left side CW) using the autozone loaner tool. No problem once I figured out they were opposite. Did not touch the e-brake at all. They self adjusted as designed and everything works. You need to un-do the adjustment you made if you were able to reassemble.

SOURCE: I need to tighten the emergency brake cable,where

Hello, There are really two things to do. There is an equalizer adjustment in the rearward part of the cable to make both rear wheels operate evenly. Put on the Ebrake lightly and see if both rear brakes are applying even pressure. Adjust until they are balanced.

Then push down fully on the Ebrake lever until tight, then push down, repeat and the Ebrake reel under the dash will draw in the extra slack.

How do I adjust the emergency brake?


Over here we call it a parking brake - hardly any of our cars are autos.

Parking brakes usually connect to the rear disc brake calipers but some manufacturers use a small drum brake in the disc centre for parking purposes due to the complexity of the caliper with integral parking brake.

When adjusting a parking brake it is important in most designs for the cable to be adjusted only to remove any free play without moving the caliper levers from the backstops and then if the parking brake lever or pedal travel is excessive it must be because of wear or other faults. Sometimes that basic requirement must be taken with a pinch or two of "experienced" salt...

Ford have a self adjusting parking brake I have experience of. A spring within the system preloads the cable eliminating all slack in the cable so the cable moves the caliper levers from the first. The main problem with the system is the preload spring is sometimes strong enough to overcome the resistance of the caliper spring and cause a binding brake. No manual adjustment was provided.
In that case I find fabricating and fitting brackets to anchor additional return springs to the calipers is a must.

Adjustment

  1. Place parking brake lever in -full released- position.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Remove plug in parking brake shoe support to access adjuster star-wheel.
  4. Through the access hole, rotate the adjuster star wheel in the following direction to expand the shoes outward against the drum:
    1. Left brake - Rotate star-wheel toward rear of vehicle.
    2. Right brake - Rotate star-wheel toward front of vehicle.
  5. Using an appropriate tool, turn adjuster star wheel until wheel will not rotate (dead lock).
  6. Back off adjuster six detents (teeth).
  7. Rotate wheel, checking for light drag. If drag is too heavy, continue to back off adjuster one detent at a time until light drag is present. Do not back off star-wheel more than 17 detents from wheel lock.
  8. Install access plug.
  9. Adjust opposite wheel parking brake shoes using same method.
  10. Lower vehicle.
  11. Apply and release parking brake lever once to ensure proper operation of parking brakes.

  1. Lock out automatic adjuster in parking brake lever.
  2. Raise and support vehicle.
  3. Access and remove rear hub and bearing.
  4. Remove parking brake cable bolt at knuckle.
  5. Completely back off parking brake shoe adjustment.

How do you get the emergency brake to release?


Some Pontiac models have a release cable pull located on the drivers side lower dash panel...other models do not have a seperate release pull...the white lettered instructions could be worn off...but you will need to depress the parking pad pedal in order to release...if none of this works, your parking brake cable is stuck, and needs to be lubricated...not a costly thing...have you had the rear brakes serviced? Hope this helps...:)

How do I adjust the parking brake cable on a 1991


If the car has a center console between the seats, and the e-brake lever is there, remove the console there should be a bolt to tighten or loosen. Loosen it with the lever DOWN, pull the cable as tight as it will go with your hand and a pair of pliers. Holding the cable in place tighten the bolt or nut that secures the cable. If this doesn't fix it, have your rear brakes inspected and/or adjusted.

I pulled my Parking brake to release it and the cable just snaped


Sir,

  1. Locate the area where you removed the vehicle's parking brakecable. Find the cut out and line it up with the corresponding surface.Slide the piece into place. Much of this will be done by touch, so makesure you know what you are looking for before you go poking around.
  2. Step 2 Usethe retainer clip to hold the parking brake cable into place. It willpop over the top of the installed parking brake cable. You will need topound it into place. Use the end of a tool, or small rubber hammer topound the retaining clip into place. Always wear safety glasses whenbanging on anything on your vehicle to protect your eyes from flyingcorrosion or other debris.
  3. Step 3 Seepthe parking brake cable back on to its hook by actuating the parkingbrake lever. You can do this by taking a large screwdriver and rotatingthe parking brake lever clockwise until there is enough play in thecable to slip the parking brake cable onto its mounting hook.
  4. Step 4 Releasethe parking brake lever and allow it to snap back into place. This isthe conclusion of the proper re-installation of the parking brakecable. If you have trouble with this process at any point, check yourvehicle's repair manualmag-glass_10x10.gif or a professional mechanic.
Thanks
Good luck

Installing an emergency brake brake lines


There are two separate cables that go to both back wheels. You have to take the drums off and remove the clip that holds the cable to the backing plate. Remove the brake shoe that the cable attaches to and remove the cable. Most have a spring that you have to hold back to get it loose from the PB actuator. Do yourself a favor and get new clips that hold the cables into the backing plate if they do not come with the cables. Most of the time they rust badly and loose their shape and won't hold the new cable securely. Both cables attach under the car at the same spot and then a cable runs up to your PB Handle.
