How to adjust parking brake


With old style handbrake, you can remove some screws around the handbrake covering. The screws are sometimes well hidden so you have to look around.
When you get the covering off, there are two adjusting nuts at the rear of the handbrake. Turn the nuts until you can get "5 clicks" on the handbrake to set the brakes.
Some jack up the car while doing this so they can rotate the wheels by hand to feel when the brakes touch the pads.
Hope this helps

Changed rear brakes on 2004 kia spectra put new caliper on passenger side and pads on both sides now driver rear looked up and passenger side wont do anything


You may need to adjust the cable for your hand brake. The driver's side is too tight and the passenger side is too loose. Best thing to do is drop the hand brake (e-brake) down, loosen the adjuster on the drum, then lift the hand brake until you hear 5 clicks. Then adjust the handbrake cable on both sides until the disk just stops.

How do you replace rear brake pads on 2006 kia spectra


Don't do this if your not comfortable working on cars ... someone could get hurt ...or your car could. Make sure front wheel are blocked and car is in either park or first gear.
  1. Don't set the parking break.
  2. Lift corner up to remove tire.
  3. Remove the two shoulder bolts on back of caliper .. .10mm I think.
  4. Pull caliper up and forward. Don't let it hank by the brake line.
  5. Remove pad, making sure to not lose the small clip that holds onto the ears of the pads.
  6. You need to get a special tool to screw in the piston that is on the caliper. This can be obtained for about $15 at most automotive store.
  7. Be careful to not tear the rubber piston boot when screwing piston back in ... go slow.
  8. Wipe caliper off of any dirt. Don't use compressed air. Use a small wire brush to remove any corrosion in the area where the pad ears go, if needed.
  9. Replace new pads into caliper and remount caliper onto rotor.
  10. Screw shoulder bolts back in. Don't force them as the shoulder fits into a hole in the backing plate. You should almost be able to screw them in by hand. tighten good
  11. Get in car and work parking brake about 5 times. This adjusts the pads to the rotors.
  12. Repeat on other side.

2003 Kia Spectra odd rattle in shifter


You are most likely hearing metal on metal on the brake pads. The brakes are not attached to the gear shift in any way. Unless those Koreans have done some really wierd design.
