If you lift the hand brake you should find an adjustment nut (I think it is 10MM). Tighten that and you should be good to go. Be careful, it doesn't take much to adjust - turn gradually/slowly.

i hope i was able to help you with your problem! tc!

On the accents what you need to do is to remove the plastic casing from around the parking brake mechanism. Towards the back on each side there is a screw that needs to come out. Then you will just need to wiggle the plastic casing out and around from the parking brake and set it aside with the screws. Once that is off on the inside there will be what looks like one long (gold colored) screw and at the bottom there will be a mini cable running off to each side. At the end of the tension adjuster is where you adjust it. Mine was very loose and I had to tighten it down quite a bit. It takes a 12 MM wrench. You will want to turn the wrench toward the passenger side to tighten it down. Hope this works for you.

It depends on who you go to and if you want it done right. I went to the Dealership and had them put front brakes on my 2008 Dodge Avenger and it has been in the shop every 2-4 months since then for front brakes. They replaced the entire front brake system and my 08 Avenger is still eating brakes. I finally took it to a friend who owns a auto repair shop he replace the rotors which are total about 115.00 for each from AutoZone and replaced the brake pads for 50.00 so it cost me just parts 155.00 and my Avenger is running smoothly since haven't had problems with the brakes since. Go to Midas and let them change it for roughly 89.00 avoid the dealership at all cost they can run 200.00-500.00 depending on if it is just the brakes pads or if it is the rotors and pads.

How do i replace my hand brake cable on my ford falcon XH ute


wait a bit ....is it rear disc or rear drums on that ute

will assume its under dash hand brake pull lever tyoe

the disc setup may have single cables for each rear
rear disk brake cable is approx $ 150

if your XH it is close to the XE and XF set up drums
a complete one line loop cable outer and inner
with plastic grommets along the back chassis rail ( they break )
so the one inner cable works both rear handbrake shoes


hand brake cable is a shorty

undo the adjustment thread
just below the hand brake cable point up somewhere above the gearbox
(drums )
after new cable fitted
drums are adjusted with the old school way with the handbrake adjuster tool
handbrake cable adjusted

then the handbrake handle when pulled out to hold needs14 plus clicks
comes out a long way for some weird reason
on drums
if cable adjustment is done wrong onrear drums the handbrake cable will come loose in the drum as you drive along

I have a 1949 dodge conv. Need to know how to adjust the parking brake


There should be a turnbuckle in the cable between the rear brakes and the handle to take the slack out of the cable. On newer models with self adjusting brakes you would turn the adjuster inside the brake drum.

There are several things that can make a hand brake stick on. It possible the cable attached to the leaver has come off it guide. There is a cable running from each rear wheel to the handbrake leaver , a inner cable running through a outer housing , chick that the inner cable is free to move back and forward . if all the cables are free to slide adjust the rear brakes and hand brake as instructions . Slacken off the hand brake cable adjustment. Jack up the rear wheals and adjust the brake shoes till the brakes lock, then back off till the wheels are free to turn. Then pull the hand brake leaver on two clicks and adjust the hand brake cable till the rear wheels just start to bind, release the hand brake leaver and check the wheels are free to turn.

How do i adjust parking brake cable on 99 dodge dakota with rear drums?


first check that the cable to either side moves freely when you pull the cable down. You will hear the brake shoes move in the drum. Next where the cable goes through a angled section from one wheel to the other and where the lever cable attaches to this point there will be an adjustable bolt for the lever cable . adjust this nut until there is about 3-4 clicks on the hand brake lever ratchet. When finished jack up one side and ensure that the wheel spins freely with the hand brake in the off position.

Is there a manual to teach to install rear brakes 208 dodge avenger


There is a manual, It's on CD. I believe the Dodge Caliper has the same brakes. If you can' get the drum off you have loosen a screw in the rear with a screw driver. My family has been changing brakes for years. You don't have to have degree to do this. lol Here's a link to the diagram for a 2008 Avenger.

Emergency brake on a 2002 Caravan


There should be a cable running underneath the car along the rear axle from one wheel to the other that connects to the cable running to the front emergency brake handle.

Follow the cable until you find the adjustment screws and turnbuckle on the cable.

Loosen the screws holding the turnbuckle tight.
Adjust the turnbuckle until the cable is tight.
Test the brake handle and readjust if necessary.

Some cars have auto adjusting rear brakes which will sometimes re-seat by running in reverse and pushing on the brake several times. Try this first!

If none of the above works, you will have to take off the rear wheels and adjust the brakes manual at the wheel hub.
