Hi. trying to change pads on rear brakes for 1993 eclipse. on the passenger side, it appears that the cable for the emergency brake needs to be disengaged before doing so. can you tell me how to do this? i see a type of spring holding in the end of the e-brake. safe to remove?

I did find a way to make this work. there is a bolt underneath the assembly that connects to the end of the e-brake cable. if you remove that bolt you can detach the cable by turning it 90 degrees and sliding it out of the assembly. this allows you to rotate the calipers and access the brake pads.

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.

Adjusting the parking brake on 03 pontiac vibe


If you look under the van on the driver side (usually) you'll see where the two cables from the rear inter-connect with the main cord to the front. Here, you should find an adjustable bolt that you can tighten. If it is not here, it may need to be tightened from there rear tires.

If you have drum brakes in the rear, these are most likely "self-adjusting" brakes, which may interact with the emergency brake. Everytime you back up, and apply the brakes, you are activating the self adjuster (you would have seen this located at the bottom of the brake system between the two brake pads. This is the self adjuster. Try going in reverse at about 5 miles per hour, and hitting the brakes firmly (not slamming on them). Drive forward again, and firmly press the brakes. Go in reverse again, and apply brakes firmly again; (do this about 4 or 5 times to get the rear brakes adjusted). Try the emergency brake again and if still not tighter, purchase or look in your repair manual as to how to adjust the emergency brake.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

You need to replace your rear brake pad linners, you also need rear shocks and shock mounts, If you still hear that nose in the rear then you may need rear wheel bearings.

How do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford taurus. I replaced rear brake pads, cylinders and drums, but now have no emergency brake so need to know how to adjust.


FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

Rear brake pads junk rotors junk front pads full,uneven,low miles


emergency brake cable may not have been adjusted properly or emergency brake may have been partially engaged without brake light indicating such. Check brake release handle, if it makes no noise as to indicate realease, then it would have to be the e brake adjustment or frozen brake cylanders that when brakes are applied the pressure presses the shoes against the drums but does not release pressure, could be bad cylanders but not likely on both sides at the same time.
