Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I have tried adjusting it and it seems that it does not pull far enough to engage hydropump release on both sides.

I tried tightening the crown nuts on both sides to tighten bracket contact and I tightened the spring rods to max. adjustment where the springs are fully compressed and it still does not disengage transmission fully. What to try next? I do not understand how this is supposed to work?

I need diagram showing how to put rear brake shoes on 1994 escort

Adjustment: 1) Start the engine and shift to Reverse. With the vehicle moving backwards, firmly depress the brake pedal several times to seat the shoes in the brake drum. Turn engine off. 2) Remove the console trim surrounding the parking brake lever. This isn't really necessary if you have a deep socket and extension. 3) Pull up on brake lever until the seventh notch is engaged, just listen and count the clicks. 4) If it is out of adjustment and you can't get the seven clicks, turn the adjusting nut located on the drivers side next to the lever. 5) Release the lever, block the front wheels, raise the rear end. Best to put on jackstands. 6) With car in neutral and brake lever released, rotate the rear wheels. The wheels should turn freely, but a slight drag is acceptable. 7) If the lever travels too far or the parking brake fails to hold the vehicle on a hill, tighten the adjusting nut a little more and recheck,

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.

Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.

Handbrake failing to engage,any solutions ?

Look under vehicle and see if cable at equalizer is hanging low. If it is or there is a lot of slack in it, then you just need an adjustment.
Basically, release brake handle, loosen the already loose cable (via equalizer nuts). pull handle back about...8 to 10 clicks/ notches. Then tighten equalizer nuts. Check it by releasing handle and this should release the rear wheels.Pulling handle up should apply parking brakes

How do i tighten the handbrake on my mitsubishi triton ute 1994 4wd

Inorder to tighten it you need to check to see if the side that is not holding if the primary shoe that the handbrake cable pulls on. If not then you may need to adjust the adjuster at the shoe. It may be too far retractor so when the handbrake is engaged, the shoe is not coming out far enough to grab the inside of the drum. There is most likely nothing wrong with the cable. You just need to adjust the shoes. When you pull the wheel off and inspect the shoes, you will see if they are not worn. To use the adjuster, pull see it will be near the retainer spring, the spring will connect from the top and bottom of the shoes to retract them. On the top side, where the upper spring is will be the mechanical adjuster, where you can adjust out the shoes to make them grab accordingly when engaged.

Cannot find the parking brake adjuster to remove rotor on a 2008 hydai unsonata

The parking brake adjuster is located at the base of the parking brake lever. It reqires a deep 12mm or 13mm socket to acsess the nut. Pull the brake lever up enough until you see the bolt and nut.Then back it off counter clockwise until it's almost at the end. When you are ready to retighten the emerg. brake, pull the lever about two inches up and tighten the nut back down again. To test the adjustment. release the lever and make sure you can turn the wheel easily. The park lever should only come up about 3-4 inches to full stop.
