ASSUMING THIS IS THE NEW BODY STYLE FOR 99 YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE REAR ROTORS. THE PARK BRAKE SHOE IS UNDER IT.

THE ROTOR USUALLY RUSTS OUT TO CONTACT THE SHOES WEARING THEM OUT.

THE ROTORS ON THIS TRUCK ARE USUALLY JUNK AND WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.

Adjust the parking break on a 2010 f-150?


Hi Jeff, Inspect the back plates of the brakes to see if there is a slot for inserting a feeler gauge. I would think there will be. Insert the feeler gauge into the slot and adjust until friction is felt on the blade. Adjust both rear brakes to the same clearance. Front Disc brakes are self adjusting (As should be the rear?)

Parking Brake


Hello;
Since you rarely use the parking brake, it is probably out of adjustment. Get under the drivers side of the vehicle after blocking the tires. You will see a cable running down the side of the frame. Follow the cable to the adjuster, it will have threads and a nut on it. Tighten the cable up a bit at a time, check your progress as you go. Do not overtighten it as the park brake will drag and wear out prematurely.
Thanks;

My break lights wont go off.


Your brakelight switch is faulty.
Inspect your brake pedal for a switch mounted near the top of the pedal.
You will find it stuck in, out of position, or internally broken.

Here is what it may look like...

It is adjustable, but if the brake pedal is not touching it while parked, it has failed internally and needs to be replaced.

replacing it involves a little tricky maneuvering under the dash to reach the switch and you need to be very aware of the orientation when fitting. PLEASE BE AWARE that you are messing with the brake pedal and if you fit this part incorrectly you could interfere with the brake pedal travel and cause a dangerous driving situation. Only fit this part once you have fully inspected the part to be removed, and preferably look at a workshop diagram. Some switches are easy some are not. Most take me 10-15 mins.
