On the back side of the wheel, there is a thin metal plate. on this plate, there is a rubber plug in a fairly small hole. remove the plug, and just inside, there should be the teeth of an adjuster start wheel visible. turn the star wheel until the drum is tight on the shoes. then, turn the start wheel back, approximately 10 teeth. test and repeat as necessary.

Emergency brake adjustment


This depends on which cable is hanging down. There are several cables in the assembly. One cable comes from the parking brake assembly under the Drivers' dash. It joins the rear cable assembly that goes to each rear wheel. Some cars have 2 separate rear wheel cables and others have a Y assembly that has to be replaced as 1 part.

There can be an adjustment rod where the front cable meets the rear assembly. Some of the parking brake reels under the dash are suppose to reel in extra slack.

Often if the rear Emergency brakes are worn out, there will be slack in the assembly.

Slack i e brake cable


If yours is like my early 95 with a lever on the center console there is a nut inside the console at the lever (probably a 10mm though might be a 12?) with an identical sized nut used as a jam nut against it. You should be able to see it with a flashlight right through the lever slot. So you need TWO 10mm wrenches to loosen it for adjustment then later tighten it. (if one ratchets all the better, it will speed up the slack tightening process) Loosen the jamb nut and tighten the lower nut until it takes six clicks of the ratchet before the e brake shoes engage the drum. That's what the book says is the proper tension. Then tighten your jam nut and you are good to go. Incidentally the other prescribed procedure at the rear wheels is for adjusting shoe to drum clearance and that is rarely needed as this is self adjusting when the vehicle is reversed. If you've just gradually lost parking brake use over time you just need to adjust the cable as I described.

2003 Escapade by Jayco Class C Motorhome. The display for emergency brake light stays on regardless if the brake is actually on or off. Please advise.


Pull up on the emergency brake pedal with your hand to see if the light will go off. If it will. there is a slack adjustment for the cable going back to the rear brakes. If it won't then the switch is bad or out of adjustment. It's located on the emergency brake pedal

How do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford taurus. I replaced rear brake pads, cylinders and drums, but now have no emergency brake so need to know how to adjust.


FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

Emergency Brakes have slack on the cable . this can be adjusted by moving the adjuster at the cable to bring the cables to both wheels tighter together. Thre are also Kits you can buy at JC Whitney for this purpose.
