Question about 1999 Ford Escort
Hello msn19000: My name is Roger and I will help. The adjustment is something you can do yourself. Look at the park brake lever and locate the adjusting nut on the left side of the lever. tighten a turn or two. Just enough to allow the lever to move six or seven clicks. Make sure the brakes do not stay aplied when you release the brake lever. THis should enable your car to pass the state inspection. How ever if you can not achive a brake that holds the car. You may need to adjust or replace the reat brakes. This would require some one with experience to replace the brake shoes. See the attached picture of brake lever to locate the adjusting nut.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger
