Question about 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager

Open Question

How do you adjust the foot park brake tension on a Chrysler Grand Voyager with disc brakes all round?

The tension of the foot park brake on the 2004 Chrysler Grand Voyager is insufficient. The foot pedal clicks seven times on application. The vechicle has disc brakes on all Wheels. I can not see any adjustment nuts on the Cables running underneath the vehicle.

There should only be two bolts on the back of the caliper holding it into the knuckle. Removing those two bolts should free the caliper. In fact I believe they're 12 or 13 millimeter bolts.

You need to de adjust the handbrake shoes through the small inspection cover on the back plates. Slackening off the parkbrake cable may help as well.

SOURCE: Picture of 1999 Chrysler Cirrus rear disc parking

Parking brake is operated by a cable and not the caliper. Your car has disc brake pads for squeezing the rotor to stop, the parking brake has drum type brake shoes that push out on the inside of the rotor. Changing the disc pads only requires squeezing the piston back in like usual.

How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?


You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.

Handbrake


They all work the same. Call it parking-brake, hand-brake or foot-brake, it is the same.

Use your hand, or foot to apply the foot-brake, whatever is convenient for you is ok.

This car has regular shoes on the back not disc. Replace shoes and adjust cable. No parking brake is a sign of worn out shoes. Regals have rear disc on them for this year.
