   You need to knock out the access hole in the backing plate . Not and easy job. If it just quit working the shoes have most likely separated from the linings and need to be replaced.

The disc brake pads are NOT used for the parking brake. The parking brake uses mini-drum type shoes inside the rear disc rotor.

SOURCE: Adjusting the parking brake on a 2003 Toyota Matrix

If you have a handbrake,,,,, I believe that the adjstment is at the bottom of the lever. Also if you have Drum brakes on the rear, It is possible you are due for a brake job. Have it inspected.

Parking brake pedal still goes to the floor and parking brake barely holds the vehicle 2003 suburban


There are things you need to check:
1. The brake pads or shoes on the back wheels.
2. The cable that connects from the pedal to the cable on the back wheels,
3. The cable on the back wheels.
The cables are adjustable.

How do I adjust the parking brake on a 1988 Suburban?


First, adjust the brakes manually. The cable that runs to the rear end has an adjustment near the frame on the drivers side.

I cant get my suburban out of park


The brake switch may have stopped working. Have someone check to see if you have brake lights when you touch the pedal. The brake switch unlocks the shift interlock that allows you to take the vehicle out of park. If there are no brake lights, check that you have power to the switch connector for the brake switch and if so, replace the switch.

2003 Chevy Suburban - where is the parking brake sensor located?


This is part of the parking brake assemly pedal. If you are looking for it to diagnose, it is on top of the assembly. it is a one wire white connector. If light is on and this is suspected to be the problem, unplugging it will shut the light off if this is the problem. If light is still on after you un plug it then it may be the master cylinder resivior switch, or the brake fluid is low. I hope this helps.

Parking break light is on & Chimming When P. Break is released


On your parking brake assembly is a single wire switch. You can unplug it, but you will have to remember not to drive with it set. To replace the switch the whole assembly will have to come out. The switch is about $20 and labor should run about two hours. Good Luck

Parking brake pedal goes to floor


Hello;
The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.
Thanks;
