How to change parking brakes on 2003 dodge ram


  • 1 Determine which type of emergency brakes your Dodge Ram will need. Emergency brakes typically function by activating the regular braking system on the driving wheels. The emergency brakes for the Dodge Ram have used rear disc brakes since 2001.
  • 2 Release the parking brake pedal completely and raise your vehicle. Remove the tire and wheel with a socket wrench and disconnect the brake caliper from the caliper adapter. Slide the rotor from the axle shaft.
  • 3 Install the new brake rotor onto the axle shaft and complete the installation by reversing the removal steps.
  • 4 Tighten the wheel mounting nuts in the proper sequence with a torque wrench until the nuts are torqued to 47.5 foot/pounds Repeat the tightening sequence to torque the nuts to 95 foot/pounds.
  • 5 Apply and release the park brake pedal to seat and adjust the parking brake cables. Road test the vehicle to ensure the vehicle's brake system is functioning.
  • 6 Place tool C-3919 or the equivalent over the park brake shoes and use the star wheel adjuster to lower the park brake shoes until the lining just touches the jaws on the tool.

    Emergency brake stuck


    Raise the car , use jack stands for safety, inspect the e-brake cable assemblies along the bottom of the car for any signs of impact damage. Next, spin each wheel to see if one or both wheels are affected. Remove both rear wheels , if you have drums, try to wiggle or pry the drum off with a couple of screw drivers , inspect for fallen or broken hardware, if all looks ok, roll the adjuster so the drums can be installed freely. If this is caliper style, remove caliper , press and rotate the piston inward at least 1/4 ,if your going to install new pads, go all the way in, re-install calipers and wheels, depress brake pedal until firm and recheck wheels for binding.

    Emergency brake not working after changing rear brake shoes on a 1990 gmc pickup 1500 series? And how do I release the emergency pedal from the floor? It won't release when you step on it?


    Was the brake shoes replacement a DIY or professional job. If DIY, are you certain that you reassembled the brakes properly? Does the truck move at all? Does it feel as though the e-brake is applied? With the e-brake pedal to the floor, the truck should not move freely when the accelerator pedal is depressed. The emergency brake assemblies on both rear wheels are connected to a cable assembly that ultimately leads to the e-brake pedal. The cable has an adjustment point and a spring tensioner to prevent slack in the cable. First, crawl under and physically check the cable tension. If it's loose, either the cables are not connected to the rear wheels' brake assemblies, not connected properly, or the cable and/or pedal is damaged/broken. If the cable is tight - overly tight, but the e-brake is not holding the truck from moving, the e-brake levers attached to the shoes inside the brake drums are likely not installed correctly. Double check your installation and consider replacing the e-brake cable (as a precaution). As for the pedal, you may have to remove it in order to get the ratchet-locking mechanism to release.
    Of course, if this was a professional job, call the shop and have them make it right. Good luck.

    Why would my emergency brake not hold? I have installed new drums, dealer replaced cable three yrs ago and has not been tight since. I have gone back several times, and had adjustments, what else can be...


    Make sure you have lots of "meat" on your brake shoes.
    Emergency brakes only apply rear brakes by using shoes against the drum, that are pulled by the cable, that's attached to the emergency brake lever / pedal....and actuated by the driver.

    It has to be one of those three components...may have to pull the drum and actuate the pedal / lever to see if the cable spreads the shoes and make adjustments from there.

    If your back brakes don't hold...it can also cause the ABS light to illuminate...

    Hope this helps...

    1994 mercury grand marquis. My emergency brake light will not stay on when the brake is on. The bulb has be checked and it is still go. I need this for it to pass inspection


    Hello, These controls are very simple. You need to have the switch adjusted in the holder under the dash or more slack in the adjustment cable.

    The way this works is the contact switch needs to extended far enough to activate the bulb. If the Emergency brake is too tight, the contact switch does not get enough room to extend. There is adjustment in the holder for this. What usually happens is the contact switch has extended for a worn system.

    When new Emergency brakes are installed or the brake cable is adjusted, someone should have reset the Emergency brake holder. Now the Emergency brake switch does not have room to work. The cable does not move far enough to allow the plunger to move under the dash. You need to either adjust the holder or loosen the cable.

    Installing an emergency brake brake lines


    There are two separate cables that go to both back wheels. You have to take the drums off and remove the clip that holds the cable to the backing plate. Remove the brake shoe that the cable attaches to and remove the cable. Most have a spring that you have to hold back to get it loose from the PB actuator. Do yourself a favor and get new clips that hold the cables into the backing plate if they do not come with the cables. Most of the time they rust badly and loose their shape and won't hold the new cable securely. Both cables attach under the car at the same spot and then a cable runs up to your PB Handle.

    Emergency Brake Cable Is Broken


    Somewhat easy to replace. The part is a dealer item (purchase only from Chevrolet dealer) If you are going to do this yourself, take many photos on the progression of the job to refer back to when putting it back together. Good Luck!

    it will be a simple wrench adjustment on the cable itself, the cable should run underneath the driver side of the vehicle. You will see an adjustment area with a cable connected to a piece of all-thread that has a nut on it, generally, tightening this setup tightens the cable, loosening looses up the cable
