There is a cable that runs along the side of the car,to your rear brakes,It should have an adjustment thread and nut on it.If you mean inside the car,then there is an adjustment nut behind the emergency brake pedal.

The parking brake is set by cable adjustment in the rear of the car. Take off the rear tires and its self-explanitory from there. Follow the cable to to rear tires and you'll be patting yourself on the back in about an hour.

Have a 2008 ford expedition having problems getting it of park

are you parking on a hill? if so the torque lock is kicking in which means the weight is putting pressure on the transmission. In the long run it could severely damage your transmission. a suggestion if that's the case is when you park set your foot on the regular brake until the car stops then put in your parking brake or emergency brake, whatever you wanna call it. then after that you can throw your transmission in park. hopefully that helps

I need to adjust my parking brake on my 2003 Expedition. It does not hold as tightly as it use to. Is this something that can be easily adjusted?

there should be an adjusting screw around the lever that is used to apply the parking brake. if you tighten this until there is a slight drag in the back tires and then back off two full turns then that will adjust the parking brake.

Emergency brake adjustment

I have a 2000 4x4 expedition and the parking brake has its own set of shoes. They are located behind the rear disc rotor. You have to remove them to get to the shoes. You will have to release the parking brake to get the rear rotors off.

Hi there!

This sounds serious - and could be expencive, so get the rear brakes checked over as soon as you can.

I think it is related to the handbrake adjuster failing, or the cables siezing in the outers.
This can be verified upon inspection.

There are cases where very hot brakes, have cooled, leading to failure when cooling. This is a manufacturing/ design defect.

Don't take chances with brakes.

If this info proves useful, please spare a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.
