SOURCE: does my car have rear hand brake shoes

it may.. I have seen these systems and if they looked at these shoes when they had the wheels off they should have changed them then..not charge extra for this..most newer cars have front and rear disc brakes that use pads.. the rear drum is much smaller in size and has seperate shoes in it.. now, there is a cable clamp you can get that will tighten the handbrake cable to take the extra slack out of the ebrake system..unless you really want these ebrake shoes replaced..did you pay for a complete brakejob? ram it down the shops throat and watch them work on it..I hate these half do it shops...

2011 holden cruise [ chevy cruise ] how do you adjust hand brake


Hi Arthur I am assuming the cruise is a standard cruise chassis. The hand brake is self adjusting there is no actual adjustment for the handbrake. It is normal for the hand brake lever to be high however, of course there is high or really high. If your lever is abnormally high and not holding the vehicle when lever is fully up something is wrong either the self adjusters are not working or brakes or cables have worn or stretched. Good luck

How do i adjust hand break new shoes fitted on a smart for two hand break lever is all the way uo ?


Adjusting the Hand Brake is quite easy

At the bottom of the Hand Brake Lever , you will see the cable with like nuts (teeth) on the cable locked by the lock on the lever it self, you will need to open the lock , take the cable off the lock , drop the handle down and put the cable back on the lever and lock it.

That is how the hand brake is adjusted on the Smart car 2002 model

Adjusting Kia rio handbrake cable


The brake drum does not fit due to the pressure in brake cylinders. Some of the cylinders are designed to keep a little pressure on, even when the pedal is released. The reason is that you will have instant reaction on pushing break pedal because there is no free space between drum and pads. You need to take clamp and push the pistons back in cylinder, but only that much so you can fit the drum. After the drum is tightened you must pump the brake pedal until you can fell that there is no free fall. The hand brake should be ok, but check it just to be shore. If there is need to tension the cable, it can be done under lever from outside the car (you must go under the car).

Hand brake lever to high


Check to make sure your rear brakes are adjusted properly. If they are out of adjustment it will cause this type of problem with your hand brake. Not knowing what type of car you have I won't be able to tell you how to do the adjustment .

Your brakes need to be adjusted first.Then worry about the handbrake.Don't get this wrong or it could be very bad.Get the brakes done,adjust the h/brake.
Cars can go but they MUST stop.Dont shortcut on the brakes.
H/brake adjustment is usually beside the h/brake lever
Hope this helps

Need repair guide for rear brakes 1990 E350 Ford


Ford Full-Size Vans 1989-1996 Repair Guide
Brake Shoes - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

Light Duty Systems
  1. Raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheel and brake drum from the wheel to be worked on.
If you have never replaced the brakes on a van before and you are not too familiar with the procedures involved, only dissemble and assemble one side at a time, leaving the other side intact as a reference during reassembly.
  1. Install a clamp over the ends of the wheel cylinder to prevent the pistons of the wheel cylinder from coming out, causing loss of fluid and much grief.
  2. Contract the brake shoes by pulling the self-adjusting lever away from the starwheel adjustment screw and turn the starwheel up and back until the pivot nut is drawn onto the starwheel as far as it will come.
  3. Pull the adjusting lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down and toward the rear to unhook the pivot hook from the large hole in the secondary shoe web. Do not attempt to pry the pivot hook from the hole.
  4. Remove the automatic adjuster spring and the adjusting lever.
  5. Remove the secondary shoe-to-anchor spring with a brake tool. (Brake tools are very common implements and are available at auto parts stores). Remove the primary shoe-to-anchor spring and unhook the cable anchor. Remove the anchor pin plate.
  1. Remove the cable guide from the secondary shoe.
  2. Remove the shoe hold-down springs, shoes, adjusting screw, pivot nut, and socket. Note the color of each hold-down spring for assembly. To remove the hold-down springs, reach behind the brake backing plate and place one finger on the end of one of the brake hold-down spring mounting pins. Using a pair of pliers, grasp the washer type retainer on top of the hold-down spring that corresponds to the pin which you are holding. Push down on the pliers and turn them 90° to align the slot in the washer with the head on the spring mounting pin. Remove the spring and washer retainer and repeat this operation on the hold down spring on the other shoe.
  3. Remove the parking brake link and spring. Disconnect the parking brake cable from the parking brake lever.
  4. After removing the rear brake secondary shoe, disassemble the parking brake lever from the shoe by removing the retaining clip and spring washer.
To install:
  1. Assemble the parking brake lever to the secondary shoe and secure it with the spring washer and retaining clip.
  2. Apply a light coating of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, at the points where the brake shoes contact the backing plate.
  3. Position the brake shoes on the backing plate, and install the hold-down spring pins, springs, and spring washer type retainers. On the rear brake, install the parking brake link, spring and washer. Connect the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever.
  4. Install the anchor pin plate, and place the cable anchor over the anchor pin with the crimped side toward the backing plate.
  5. Install the primary shoe-to-anchor spring with the brake tool.
  1. Install the cable guide on the secondary shoe web with the flanged holes fitted into the hole in the secondary shoe web. Thread the cable around the cable guide groove.
  2. Install the secondary shoe-to-anchor (long) spring. Be sure that the cable end is not cocked or binding on the anchor pin when installed. All of the parts should be flat on the anchor pin. Remove the wheel cylinder piston clamp.
  3. Apply Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the threads and the socket end of the adjusting starwheel screw. Turn the adjusting screw into the adjusting pivot nut to the limit of the threads and then back off 1 / 2 turn.
Interchanging the brake shoe adjusting screw assemblies from one side of the vehicle to the other would cause the brake shoes to retract rather than expand each time the automatic adjusting mechanism is operated. To prevent this, the socket end of the adjusting screw is stamped with an "R" or an "L" for "RIGHT" or "LEFT". The adjusting pivot nuts can be distinguished by the number of lines machined around the body of the nut; one line indicates left-hand nut and two lines indicate a right-hand nut.
  1. Place the adjusting socket on the screw and install this assembly between the shoe ends with the adjusting screw nearest to the secondary shoe.
  2. Place the cable hook into the hole in the adjusting lever from the backing plate side. The adjusting levers are stamped with an R (right) or a L (left) to indicate their installation on the right or left-hand brake assembly.
  3. Position the hooked end of the adjuster spring in the primary shoe web and connect the loop end of the spring to the adjuster lever hole.
  4. Pull the adjuster lever, cable and automatic adjuster spring down toward the rear to engage the pivot hook in the large hole in the secondary shoe web.
  5. After installation, check the action of the adjuster by pulling the section of the cable guide and the adjusting lever toward the secondary shoe web far enough to lift the lever past a tooth on the adjusting screw starwheel. The lever should snap into position behind the next tooth, and release of the cable should cause the adjuster spring to return the lever to its original position. This return action of the lever will turn the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth. The lever should contact the adjusting screw starwheel one tooth above the centerline of the adjusting screw.
If the automatic adjusting mechanism does not perform properly, check the following:
  1. Check the cable and fittings. The cable ends should fill or extend slightly beyond the crimped section of the fittings. If this is not the case, replace the cable.
  2. Check the cable guide for damage. The cable groove should be parallel to the shoe web, and the body of the guide should lie flat against the web. Replace the cable guide if this is not so.
  3. Check the pivot hook on the lever. The hook surfaces should be square with the body on the lever for proper pivoting. Repair or replace the hook as necessary.
  4. Make sure that the adjusting screw starwheel is properly seated in the notch in the shoe web.

Heavy Duty Systems
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Remove the wheel and drum.
  1. Remove the parking brake lever assembly retaining nut from behind the backing plate and remove the parking brake lever assembly.
  2. Remove the adjusting cable assembly from the anchor pin, cable guide and adjusting lever.
  3. Remove the brake shoe retracting springs.
  4. Remove the brake shoe hold-down spring from each shoe.
  5. Remove the brake shoes and adjusting screw assembly.
  6. Disassemble the adjusting screw assembly.
  7. Clean the ledge pads on the backing plate. Apply a light coat of Lubriplate®, or equivalent, to the ledge pads (where the brake shoes rub the backing plate).

Handbrake adjustment 1955 X Type Jaguar


There really should not be any adjustment necessary, the parking brake is self adjusting. When you first install new pads It may take several puls of the lever to get them set up.

The cables MUST be absolutely free moving, for the system to work.

The adjustment as pads wear is inside the caliper itself and it is automatic, there is a little lever on the caliper and it moves the pads ahead every time it is pulled. This lever can become sticky and not return after it is pulled. you can free it up by removing the lever and then removing the rubber dust sheild behind it. Then you clean and lubricate it.
When all is moving freely, the arm should spring back against a hard stop each time the cable is pulled.

There is an adjustment on the cables under the car, just behind the centre console. It normally does not need adjusting unless you replace the cables themselves.
To check the adjustment, you need to make sure that the little levers on the rear calipers are fully returned to their rest position, and make sure the handle inside the car is down. Then adjust the nut to take up the slack in the cables.

I dont think that they can screw up the calipers inside. I have had them apart and there is really nothing to bust. I suspect very strongly that the levers on each caliper are not moving freely.

Most places dont understand all this, even the dealers, so they sell you new cables and calipers. I know for a fact that you can make it all work if you get everything moving freely.
