The adjustment is made at the handle under the console:
ADJUSTMENT OF PARKING BRAKE STROKE
1.Pull the brake lever with a force of approx. 196 N (20 kg, 44 lbs.) and check the number of clicks.
Parking brake lever stroke (Standard value) : 8 clicks
2.If the number of notches is not the standard value, adjust the cable length with the adjusting nut on the equalizer. 3.The indicator light will go out when the brake lever is fully released, and will light up with the lever pulled one notch. If it does not operate properly, replace it.
4.After the adjustment, check that the rear brakes do not drag with the parking brake lever released.
On a 2006 Mazda Tribute which everyone tells me is a Ford Escape, in the cab, at the parking brake lever, remove the boot or decorative cover on the parking brake handle. The brake adjustment is a self-locking nut on the threaded end of the parking brake cable that connects to the left and right parking brake cables underneath the car.
The only adjustment possible is right there at the handle after you remove the boot that covers the parking brake handle in the center console. If the brake has been allowed to get loose, the cable may very well have come off the cable guide on the parking brake handle and there will be no braking and the cable may very well be cut or partially cut by the handle. With some straight screwdrivers push the cable into its guide and then adjust the parking brake.
But, underneath, there is no adjustment whatever possible for a 2006 Mazda Tribute.
On a 1991 F-250, yes, but not here. Don't get dirty for nothing. This is the easiest brake to adjust since the old screw handles.
Doe's the back brakes work? Is number 7 and 15 hooked up right? If they are. Try backing up and hitting brakes, This will tigjhten them up.
