SOURCE: Adjusting the emergency cable.

it will be a simple wrench adjustment on the cable itself, the cable should run underneath the driver side of the vehicle. You will see an adjustment area with a cable connected to a piece of all-thread that has a nut on it, generally, tightening this setup tightens the cable, loosening looses up the cable

SOURCE: emergency brake will not work after new shoes have

It sounds like the shoes weren't adjusted correctly or the e-brake cables weren't hooked up right. If you have no tension at all when setting the parking brake, the cables might me off the arm or possibly broken. If there is a little tension when setting the brake try readjusting the shoes.

SOURCE: brake shoe springs

brake springs are usually color coded for convenience, so that should help. don't be afraid to look online for a diagram, grab a buddy that knows something, or buy a repair manual if you need it.

SOURCE: 2005 Outlander has now new rear brake shoes and

Under the center console is a Y in the cable that leads under and around the top/rear side of the brake handle. At the top/rear of the handle is a locknut and threaded shaft to adjust tension.

Be sure to not have any drag on the brakes when you are done adjusting!

Emergenct brake will not hold


The linkage could need to be adjusted. Or the brake shoes inside the rear drums are worn out and need to be replaced. If you accidentally drive the brake on. It doesn't take long to wear those brake shoes out. You can normally smell them when that happens. On today's vehicles they are actually designed with 3 different brake systems. Front brake disc and rotors, rear disc and rotors, and inside the rear brake rotor their is a small brake drum where the emergency brake shoes are located. The only purpose for the shoes and drums is emergency brake only (normally). Hope this helps.

Rear brakes on 2005 F150


You can't remove the rotors because the emergency brake is tight on the inside of the rotors. Make sure it's not engaged when you are working on the rear brakes. Block the front tires for saftey. Then you have to remove the rear calipers from the mounting brackets, there are two bolts that hold the calipers on. Make sure you hang the calipers securily with some wire so you don't damage the rubber brake line hose. Then you need to adjust the emergency parking brake shoes in order to remove the rotors. Theres a rubber plug on the backside of the rear hubs, once you look at the back of the hub you'll see the plug. It's on the top. Once you take out the plug, you need to use a screw driver to turn the star spindel. You need to turn the star spindel counter-clockwise in order to give yourself enough clearance to remove the rotors. The beauty of this design is that ford incorporated a drum and caliper system together, but it's difficult to take off the rotors if the emergency brake shoes are to tight. The inside of the rotors acts as the drums for the emergency brake system. I've done this and it's not that hard, but, I did have to replace the emergency brake shoes because they were worn out and the shoes fell off the metal backing plates when I finally got the rotors to come off. They only glued these shoes onto the backing plates, they don't rivet them so take your time getting the rotors off or you can damage the emergency brake shoes, but if you do they are cheap at napa. My service guide says to install the new rotors, use a couple of lug nuts to hold it on, then adjust the star spindal for the emergency brake all the way clockwise until you can't turn it anymore, then you must back it off 8 clicks counter-clockwise. Make sure the emergency brake is not engaged when you are doing this, the 8 clicks backwards compensates for when you do engage the parking brake because the shoes expands outwards. This adjustment sets the emergency brakes so they work properly. Once the emergency brake is properly set you can't remove the rear rotors, which is what your initial problem is. Then install the rubber plug back in the hole, put on the new pads and calipers and you're good to go.
