Should be a threaded adjustment rod in the cable. Depending upon the mileage & usage, the rear brake linings might be worn and in need of replacement.

The park is only a pin in a notched wheel in the box and is not meant to hold the car on an incline . Adjust or repair the park brake as it is the primary holding device for the car. Check that you are actually engaging park as the indicator may light up but the selector may need adjustment.

For some reason my 2002 does the same thing. Do you by chance park on an inclined driveway, because we do and setting it in Park with that extra tension may be causing this. If you do park on an incline, as we do, pull in and when you put on the brake keep it down while you set the parking break, so no tension is on the transmission, then move the lever to park. Hope this helps!

I backed my 1997 explorer into a slightly inclined parking space and left it running when I returned it had shutdown and the check gauges light was on and it will not restart.


If the incline is steep enough, you may have had enough angle on the tank to allow air into the fuel line and it will act like you are out of gas. Try coasting off the incline and starting on flat ground.

How to adject generater blet on 1972 VW


To adjust the belt tension on a 72 you can slightly loosen the bolts that hold the alternator in place, pull the alternator towards the outside of the loop the belt makes, then re-tighten the alternator bolts. If you can't get enough tension through the adjustment you'll need to replace the belt.

How to adjust hand break hyundai elantra 2000 model


1. Remove the console upper cover.
2. Remove the crash center facia panel.
3. Remove Console Assembly.
4. Adjust the parking brake lever stroke.

You may not have to remove all of these pieces, just enough that you can access the adjusting nuts. Make sure both cables have tension, they are famous for breaking, and making the other side too loose.

How do I adjust the parking brake?


Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.

Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.

  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.

  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
  1. Raise vehicle again.
