Question about 2005 Saturn Relay
Posted by Anonymous on
The first step ALWAYS to adjust the REAR BRAKE SHOES. The parking brake should not go "out of adjustment" UNLESS the rear brake shoes are:
2. Have recently been replaced and not set correctly
3. Are out of adjustment due to wear.
Turning the adjustment nut (unlike what Autozone seems to imply) is the LAST thing you should do AFTER all other possibilities have been eliminated.
Adjusting the rear brakes can often be accomplished easily in an empty parking lot. Simply accelerate in REVERSE to about 5~10 MPH and stomp on the brake pedal. Repeat this 3~5 times. You will often discover afterward that your forward braking performance has suddenly improved and that Parking brake is now miraculously "back in adjustment."

you can pull the center console with phillips screw removal and find the adjuster for the hand brake towards the rear . 12 mm wrench required if memory serves me

SOURCE: Removing the rear rotors on
Unless your parking brake is on, they should just slide off-but you sometimes have to 'persuade' it using a hammer and hitting the rotor edge on the inside, rotating it so you tap it off-you do not have to get crazy, but smacking it with a hammer (put a towel over it to avoid scarring it if you feel better) will get it off-a necesary tool in any toolbox is a 4 lb. hammer, comes in handy for just such a problem.
