  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.

Parking brake light stays on,brake is not


check teh switch, located under the dash, and is touched by the brake lever, also, back brake adjustment and emergency brake cable adjustment (in that order) can cause the parking break lever to not fully return and activate the switch.

Also, Ford uses this light to indicate low brake fluid level. There is a switch on or near the fluid reservoir.

Removal & Installation

  1. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  2. On Front Wheel Drive models, remove the heat shield above the exhaust in the center tunnel.
  3. Locate the threaded adjusters. On All Wheel Drive (AWD) models, they are located in the front of the lower control arms, on Front Wheel Drive (FWD) vehicles, they are located in the tunnel on the underbody of the vehicle.
  4. Remove the locking clip between the hex nut and the adjustment housing.
  5. Counter hold the hex nut with a 13mm wrench and thread the adjustment housing to loosen the cable until the adjustment housing is fully loosened, then slide the 2 portions of the cable toward one another.
  6. Remove the lock clip at the brake caliper and remove the cable, taking care to not damage the cable boot.
  7. On Front Wheel Drive models, remove the heat shield above the muffler and push aside.
  8. Remove the cables from the cable brackets. Should the assembly aid fall out it is not necessary to reinstall it.
  9. Using a suitable flat blade screwdriver, remove the cables from the retaining bracket at the under body tunnel where the cables enter the interior of the vehicle.
  10. Remove the rear portion of the center console, then using a suitable flat blade screwdriver, push the cables toward the parking brake lever and press the cable ball end out of the bracket.
  11. From under the vehicle, press the guide sleeve-locking element together and pull the cables out of the guide sleeve.
To install:
  1. Guide the parking brake cables through until the guide sleeve locks into place.
  2. If not previously removed, remove any plastic parts at the hand brake lever adjustment bracket as they are not needed for installation.
  3. Using a No. 2 flat-blade screwdriver, lock the adjustment bracket at the hand brake lever to prevent it from turning.
  4. Insert the cable end ball through the mounting in the adjustment bracket, making sure the cable locks into place in the bracket.
  5. Working under the vehicle, route the cables through their routing brackets and attach them to the brake caliper.
  6. The balance of installation is in reverse order of removal noting the following:
  7. Adjust the parking brake cable and check its operation.
Disc Brakes
  1. Raise and safely support the vehicle.
  2. Release the parking brake. It may be necessary to unscrew the adjusting nuts to provide slack in the brake cable.
  3. At each rear wheel brake caliper, remove the spring clip retaining the parking brake cable to the caliper.
  4. Lift the cable from the caliper mount and disengage it from the parking brake lever.
  5. Pull the cables out from under the vehicle.
  6. Installation is the reverse of removal.
  7. Adjust the parking brake as described at the beginning of this section.
Drum Brakes
  1. Block the front wheels and release the hand brake.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear of the vehicle.
  3. Remove the rear brake shoes.
  4. Remove the brake cable assembly from the back plates.
  5. Remove the cable adjusting nuts at the handle and detach the cable guides from the floor pan.
  6. Pull the cables out from under the vehicle.
  7. Installation is the reverse of removal. Adjust the parking brake and road test the vehicle.

CAUTION
Brake shoes may contain asbestos, which has been determined to be a cancer causing agent. Never clean the brake surfaces with compressed air! Avoid inhaling any dust from any brake surface! When cleaning brake surfaces, use a commercially available brake cleaning fluid. NOTE: A brake spring removal tool and a brake adjusting gauge are required for this procedure.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle safely with jackstands.
  2. If the brakes have never been serviced before, the drums will be held on the wheel studs with spring nuts. Remove the spring nuts and discard.
  3. Turn the adjustment starwheel so that the brake shoes are retracted from the brake drum and remove the brake drum.
  4. Install wheel cylinder clamps to retain the wheel cylinder pistons in place and prevent leakage of brake fluid while replacing the shoes.
  5. Remove the U-clip and washer securing the adjuster cable to the parking brake lever.
  6. Remove the adjuster cable, cable guide, adjuster lever and adjuster springs. Remove the return springs with a brake spring remover tool.
  7. Remove the hold-down retainers and springs, then remove the brake shoes. To install:
  8. Clean the backing plate with a brush or cloth. Place a dab of Lubriplate® on each spot where the brake shoes rub on the backing plate. NOTE: Always replace brake linings in axle sets. Never replace linings on one side or just on one wheel.
  9. Thoroughly clean and lubricate the adjuster cable guides, adjuster screw and pivot, parking brake lever and lever pivot pin with multi-purpose grease.
  10. Apply a thin coat of multi-purpose chassis lube to the mounting pads on the backing plate.
  11. Transfer the parking brake actuating lever to the new secondary shoe.
  12. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, then install the hold-down springs and retainers. Don't forget to engage the parking brake lever with the cable.

Handbrake does not always work at first attempt. if you pull the handbrake up and down a few times without the button pressed eventually it catches on the ratchet and works.


Check the return spring on the parking brake lever as wll as the gear teeth:
  1. Make sure the parking brake cable is free and is not frozen or sticking. Make sure the brake shoes are properly adjusted.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  3. Apply the parking brake while counting the number of notches. Check the desired parking brake stroke; it should be 7-9 notches.
  4. If adjustment is required, remove the adjusting nut cover and turn the adjusting nut located at the front of the parking brake cable.
  5. After adjustment, check there is no looseness between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever, then tighten the locknut.
Do not adjust the parking brake too tight. If the number of notches is less than specification, the cable has been pulled too much and the automatic adjuster will fail or the brakes will drag.
  1. With the parking brake lever in the released position, turn the rear wheels to confirm that the rear brakes are not dragging.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Check that the parking brake holds the vehicle on an incline.
