Emergency brake adjustment

This depends on which cable is hanging down. There are several cables in the assembly. One cable comes from the parking brake assembly under the Drivers' dash. It joins the rear cable assembly that goes to each rear wheel. Some cars have 2 separate rear wheel cables and others have a Y assembly that has to be replaced as 1 part.

There can be an adjustment rod where the front cable meets the rear assembly. Some of the parking brake reels under the dash are suppose to reel in extra slack.

Often if the rear Emergency brakes are worn out, there will be slack in the assembly.

The adjuster is all the way closed and the drum wont go on

If we are talking about the rear brake and it is a drum brake(some have rotors), the drum brake is also your Emergency brake.

The Emergency brake has a cable and it often is self-adjusting. What has probably happened in your car is that the adjuster has tightened up and the OFF position is too tight for the thickness of the new brake material.

The cable winds on a reel in the Emergency brake assembly for those units with self-adjusters. Simple lock-nuts manually adjust the cable on other units.

So what you want to do is unreel the self-adjuster by keeping your fingers clear and pushing a release tab on the Emergency brake cable reel. Or manually back off the manually adjusting lock nuts on the brake cable. You may have to work loose the rust in the pivot at the backing plate.

Once you get the pivot to fully swing into the drum, the adjuster will contract enough for the drum to fit.

Please comment on my info.

I have a 2003 cadillac escalade ext and the check brake system light came on. The ABS and traction light are also on. What could be the problem?

The most likely problem is a wheel motion sensor. If your check brake light is on, you have a problem that needs immediate attention. Refer to your owners manual to see if your Escalade is still safe to drive.

I have replace the shoes on my '96 Ford Contour and cannot get the drums back on. The auto adjuster is fully retracted, the shoes are not hanging up on the backing plate, the springs look to be installed...

I had a similar problem with my truck. The Parking brake cables had too much tension. If you have the type with the threads on the cable they need to be backed off. Another type of Parking brake has a reel on the cable inside the car. The reel can have 2 types of adjustment. One has a threaded cable with adjustable nuts and the other is automatic. There is a latch to press to unload the spring and unwind the cable.

I changed the shoes on the Parking brakes on my 2005 Escalade EXT, adjusted the shoe adjusters so the shoes "just" drake when the drums are re-installed, cleaned and re-lubed the mechanical cylinders,...

The first time you use the brakes on a drum the shoes will equalize with each other. This may be the reason it doesn't seem adjusted right. Readjust the shoe adjusters till you can just hear the scrape and try again.

2002 Escalade - ABS light on, and motor noise after cutting off vehicle

The ABS is your braking system it could be your brakes are bad like the pads or the rotors. So the sensor will come on until you fix the brake pads or rotors. Go to any mechanic shop and let them diagnose the problem most shops will inspect your brakes for free also explain what you here and what it doe's.

1993 Honda Accord Emergency Brake + Rear seatbelt not retracting

The e-brake probably has an adjustment nut either under the brake when you have it pulled up or simply removing a small plastic plate at the back of the console as seen from the rear seat.
You wil probably need about a 12mm deep socked to adjust it. If the nut is bottomed out you will need to adjust if at the wheels.

As far as the seatbelt, you will need to access the reel assembly and determine if the belt is in a bind or the internal spring in the reel is broken. You should be able to tell what the problem is when you get to the reel.
