SOURCE: I parked my car and after 30 minutes it rolled and caused damages. My problem is the car was taken to the dealer to replace all four brake pads and handbrake adjusment 2weeks ago.whos fault is this

Hey Phathi. Sorry to here about your drama. I have a similar problem . I will spare you the details. What i was advised to to is have your car assessed by two registered clutch , brake and shock service shops. They will be able to give you a report of what went wrong. If it states that the dealer was at fault ( activate your mobile phone voice recorder) you will have to go to the dealer and submitted your findings and also your claims. They will either submit and hand the matter over to there insurance company or tell you to f of . If that happens you thank them politely and go directly to the state prosecutors office . I hope this helps my friend. I know how it feels to have this stress on top of stress already.At the end of the day ... trust me the people involved are not thinking about you or what they would have felt like being in this situation. They do not care and i would /have the same mindset. Hope i could help.

Today my car rolled down an small hill but the mysterious thing is my handbrake was up (or on as I thought). The woman who ran to tell me, my car had banged into her car, looked in the window and saw...

Hand brake is not working properly or you did not raise it high enough. That is why you always need to turn your front wheels into the curb when parked on a hill, so if your brakes fail the car will be stopped by the curb.

Why does my jaguar xk8 stiil roll when in park

If you're trying to hold it on the auto transmission alone, then the transmission brake bands need adjusting or even replacing. If it's rolling when the handbrake (parking brake) is applied, then the handbrake needs adjusting or needs new pads.

The car should never be parked and held on the transmission alone; the handbrake should always be the primary means of holding the car from moving.

Both of these jobs are routine maintenance tasks but are not ones for an inexperienced mechanic.

How do you replace the parking brake cable on a 1993 Chrysler New Yorker after replacing the brake shoes and rear wheel cylinder

Generally you should not have to replace the parking brake cable. It should have an adjustment to give more slack or takle up slack as needed. Get a Haynes manual (around $20 at autozone) for your car. It will tell you how to adjust the parking brake cable and/or how to replace the cable if that is needed. In most cases it is just an adjustment that is needed

I just got my handbrake adjusted in my hyundai excel. whenever i pull up on a slope it still rolls back with the handbrake on

If the hill is steep or is covered with dirt or sand then you may not have a problem. Did you park there before and it held? Do you use the hand-brake all the time? Have there been times that you forgot to release the parking brake? When the shoes were adjusted were the shoes inspected before the adjustment? The tech. should have looked for problems.

Driving with parking brake on

More likely than not you wore the parking brake pads down. The parking brake pads are seperate from the rear disc brakes. They are a drum style. The rear rotars are designed to work as both drum and disc.
I would say in 20 miles you did little no no damage to drivetrain.
Typically when you get a brake job they will adjust the parking brake shoes. It is extremly easy if you have already gone and removed the brake calipers. Essentially you pull off the rotor (you would need a tool for this called a puller. not expensive, maybe $10. Something somone doing your brakes would have. Once the rotars are off you just turn a star gear.
This might add $15-20 to a standard brake job. Maybe $50 if the shoes need to be replaced.
