How do you adjust parking brake


The parking brake lever usually activates a cable that is attached to the rear drum brake. You can look for the connection at the parking break lever in the car and there many be an adjustment nut that you can tighten - this is only a small adjustment as is getting under the vehicle and just tighten up the nut. Typically, if the parking break does set the break firmly with a small push - pull (depending on the type) is means your break pads are getting worn down.

I have 2000 toyota corolla. Today I had rear wheel cylinder (both) changed. Also the break shoes and Pads (front). After that change, My parking break is not working. Will the parking break is going to...


the guy who knows the answer to that question is the guy who put the brakes back together. he should have adjusted the shoes out, or hopefully replaced them and adjusted them, so that the brakes are good and hence the parking brake will also be good. if not then something is amiss. but applying the parking brakes does theoretically turn the adjuster so as to move the shoes out.

Ive just changed tne back breaks on my laguna now ive got no hand break


Hi There.
put the car back on axle stands and remove back wheels, check that all components are fitted correctly, (oversights are easy to do and a niusance when you realise). Unadjust the brakes and the unadjust the hand/parking brake, readjust the rear brakes so that they spin about one revolution by hand on both sides, (MAKE SURE THAT THEY ARE EQUAL ON BOTH SIDES) when you are happy with that readjust the hand/parking brake, reinstall wheels and check hand/parking again, you should now have a hand brake,, ( adjust to between 5-7 clicks ) let me know how you get on..
Good Luck.

Why does the parking break light stay on in my 97 Olds Cutlas Supreme. I have checked the level of the break fluid and it is full. I did have new break lines put in last year. I did have to slam on my...


Apply the parking brake with the vehicle parked, engine turned off and transmission in Park. Release the parking brake completely, then apply it again, and ensure that it is fully released. Turn the ignition on, check to see if the Parking brake warning light is on. If it is NOT on, apply the parking brake and check to see if the warning light comes on. If the light come ON wihen the Parking brake is applied,.....fully release the parking brake and check if the warning light goes OFF. If it does NOT go off, then an adjustment is needed at the parking brake switch.

Parking brake efficency too low


The parking break is a stand alone cable that can be adjusted if you climb under the vehicle. depending on your parking break location in the cab will help you better locate it under the car IE if you set your parking brake using a handle in the center of the vehicle cab, the wire is close to center under the vehicle, if you use a handle or foot pedal its on the driverside of the vehicle and Y's off to the passager side and driver side rear break

EX:

follow the cable and you will find the adjuster bolt, just tighten it to take up slack in the cable, if there is no slack you will increase the efficency of the parking break.....Dont over tighten it though cause this can cause drag in the rear breaks and shorten the lifespan of the break shoe or pad

How do I adjust the parking brake?


Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.
