    How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?


    You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

    The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

    Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

    When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

    When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.

    How do I adjust the handbrake?


    The parking brake on most vehicles are self adjusting. If the parking brake is not self adjusting you will to remove the brake drum/rotor and check to see which part is binding. If you wan to simply adjust the parking brake lever to make it tighter there should be an adjusting nut on the cable under the vehicle.
