Under the truck you will find the adjuster, to take the slack out of the cable, If that does not work adjust your rear brakes.

My 1984 Ford rangers Emergency brake will not go down. It feels as if it is stuck in place and I need to fix it for it to pass inspection


Your emergency brake wires are rusted and need to be replaced. While you have the rear wheels off it won't hurt to clean and lube the mechanical brake parts.

How would I adjust my emergency brake for my 1998 ford ranger truck ? the footbrake almost pushes to the floor Thank you in advance


Better look at rear brake shoe thickness first. If they are ok follow the brake cables up from both rear wheels to were they come together. There is a long thread stud there and a nut. Tighten the nut.
