Lossen the equalizer nut (looks like a Y with a metal bracket in it) and detach the rear cable or cables from equalizer. Detach the cable casing from the bracket by pressing the tangs of the retainer and passing the cable through the bracket. follow the cable and remove any mounting bracket bolts or clips that may be securing the cable.

For disc brakes, you want to detach the cable from the lever on the parking brake actuator.

For drum, you want to remove the shoes and disconnect the parking brake cable form the lever. Press the tangs on the cable casing retainer and detach the cable casing from the bracket on the backing plate which may require use of needle nose pliers. Then simply remove the cable.

How do you change the dust covers on the rear brakes of a 1999 Silverado Z71?


You need to remove the axle shafts. Remove the differential cover, pinion shaft and c-locks. Then you can unbolt the backing plates and transfer the park brakes.

Have supposedly worn out two sets of parking brakes in 8 years. Thing is I rarely engage the parking brake. Is this possible. Have 2002 GMC Sierra


Yes it is because if you have gotten 8 years out of two sets of rear break shoes you are doing well...........Emerg break is on the wear of the rear shoes............40 percent on the front and 60 percent on the front on aplication of the break.to change the application when towing u have to apply your parking break a little to change the ratio..........Hope this helps.

Driver side rear tire locked up


Remove wheel from drum... using a large hammer crack the wheel drum a few times, this should loosen the brake shoe's or the rust which is locking the drum, on the rear of the drum you will find a small square nut which is the adjuster for the shoes try to turn anti clockwise this will also help to loosen the shoes.... hope this helps

Parking break needs adjustment


ASSUMING THIS IS THE NEW BODY STYLE FOR 99 YOU WILL NEED TO REMOVE THE REAR ROTORS. THE PARK BRAKE SHOE IS UNDER IT.

THE ROTOR USUALLY RUSTS OUT TO CONTACT THE SHOES WEARING THEM OUT.

THE ROTORS ON THIS TRUCK ARE USUALLY JUNK AND WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED.
