Greetings larslabs,
My name is Dennis and I can assist you to finding your parking brake adjustment location.
1) the adjustment is located so that you have to remove your center console floor finish panel (this is the drink holder).
2) raise your parking brake lever and gently pry the plastic tabs from the center console.
3) Once you can see the park brake lever you will see a nut that is turned to adjust the lever so that it has 5 clicks when it is applied.
Glad to be of assistance and thank you for using FixYa. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating (and it keeps my rating up to date). Thank you, Dennis

SOURCE: emergency break cable broke on 2004 silverado

I had the same problem on my 2003. Open the driver door all the way. Get on your knees just outside the door. Follow the plastic tub that holds the parking brake release cable inside the truck. Start from the release lever and follow to the end of the tube. There will be a metal lever that the cable was attached to before it broke. You have to pull that lever with your hand to release the parking brake. Very Important!!!...Hold the parking brake activation pedal with your other hand when you release the brake. Let the pedal out slowly when you pull the metal release lever. The pedal will come back very fast and you could injure yourself if you are not careful. Good luck!

The parking brake cable should be replaced but in the short term try getting under the truck and grabbing the cable casing and move them around to get the seized cable inside the cable casing to release keep working the cable until it releases if this doesn't work replace both cables.

How do i ajust emergency brake4


Look along side the frame on the drivers side to see if there is the parking brake cable visible. If it is then there is an adjustment nut there that will put more tension on the cable.

For the Honda CRV 2004, the driver's side automatic window does not go up or down but all other ones do. Please advise.


Your emergency brake is a mechanical brake system that is indipendant of the regular hydrolic system. If the red brake light on the dash is on make sure it's the emerg. brake and not a problem with the fluid level or the calapers sticking. the best way to check the emerg. brake is to rase both rear wheels off the ground and spin them. If they spin, the emerg. brake is not locked up. If they don't spin, take the rear tires off and the brake drums. (you may have rear disk brakes.) check the springs to insure they are all hooked up properly. If there is no problem there, follow the parking brake cable to check for damage. The cable is like a brake cable on a bike, If the inner cable is binding inside the cable sleeve,the brake wont release. If you have rear disc, it's probly a bad calaper.The park brake cable is attached to the calapers. Rember if it wont run it's annoying but if it won't stop, it's deadly. DON"T experiment with brakes!!! If in doubt, take it to a pro.

How can adjust the emergency brake for my 2004 GMC Envoy...


YOUR MOST LIKELY PROBLEM IS IN THE REAR ROTORS. THE PARK BRAKE AREA WILL RUST INWARD WEARING OUT THE PARK BRAKE SHOE. THE ADJUSTER IS UNDER THE ROTOR ALSO. ONE ON EACH SIDE.

ADJUST THE SHOE OUT UNTIL IT TOUCHES THE DRUM AND THEN BACK IT OFF ABOUT 6-7 CLICKS.
