Parking brake cable snapped but brake is on. any


Under the dash, where the break release handle is, you'll see a lever where the release cable is/was attached to. Either push forward, or pull back this lever and it will release the parking break. BE CAREFUL the foot peddle for the parking break doesn't hit you in the face!

Parking brake efficency too low


The parking break is a stand alone cable that can be adjusted if you climb under the vehicle. depending on your parking break location in the cab will help you better locate it under the car IE if you set your parking brake using a handle in the center of the vehicle cab, the wire is close to center under the vehicle, if you use a handle or foot pedal its on the driverside of the vehicle and Y's off to the passager side and driver side rear break

EX:

follow the cable and you will find the adjuster bolt, just tighten it to take up slack in the cable, if there is no slack you will increase the efficency of the parking break.....Dont over tighten it though cause this can cause drag in the rear breaks and shorten the lifespan of the break shoe or pad

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.
