0. Put you car in "P" and DO NOT press the parking brake with you foot.
1. Lift up your car (about 4 feet to work easily)
2. Remove the back wheels.
3. Remove the two plugs from the combined drum / disc brake.
(it's in the middle part of the drum on the outer surface)
4. Grab a regular screwdriver and start adjusting by turning the 2 bolts inside the hole where you removed the rubber plugs.
5. Once you are ready, put back the plugs + mount the wheels.

Note: Please do not over-tighten the setting / calibrating bolts. You will NOT feel it! The best setting is, when you can still turn the drum with your hands, but you already hear that inside the drum the brake pads are slightly in contact with the drum.

USE GLOVES, as it's a dirty job.

This is some more info just because you have removed the wheels. I mean, if you have a bit more time you may do a short check (this is not related to the parking brake adjustment but highly recommended):
Once you have your car lifted and the wheels remove,
check also the silents and the shock absorbers for leeks. Also check the brake disks for thickness and how even they is. Check the thickness of the brake pads. If they are less than 2-3 mm I'd change them too! Not a big work, I can send you a 5 minute video hoe to do it.
You can clean the brakes with a brake cleaner once your car is lifted.
When re-mounting the tires use Zink-spray around and on the bolts of the wheel. This will help you removing them next time or at the next tire change. DON'T SPRAY IT ONTO THE DISKS!!!

This car has self adjusters. They only work when the car moves in reverse and when the brakes are applied. Is that what you needed to know?

Take a look underneath for cable running to each rear wheel & then come together at one cable going forward. Adjustment should be in that "Y" area.

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.

2003 Envoy SLT V8--How can I adjust the parking brake? recently replaced per dealer cable and was very tight, then back at dealer for rotors ,E-brake then very loose. Back to dealer for adjustment=a little...


The parking brake on your envoy is like a small set of drum brakes mounted inside the "hat" of your rear rotors. To adjust it, remove the rear wheels and remove the rubber cap on the rotor. If you don't have a rubber cap look at the brake backing plate and look for an access plug. Rotate the rotor and look inside towards the top or bottom for a star wheel. Rotate the star wheel like you would if you were adjusting drum brakes. You want a very small amount of drag on the rotor while rotating it. If you get too much drag, rotate the star wheel the opposite direction.

The rear drum brakes:
  • Have internal shoes that expand against the brake drum (1126).
  • Are a single-anchor type.
  • Are actuated by one rear wheel cylinder (2262).
  • Have two pistons in the rear wheel cylinder (2261). One exerts force against the upper end of the primary shoe; the other exerts force against the upper end of the secondary shoe.
  • Adjust rear brake shoes and linings (2200) automatically.
  • Need manual brake adjustment if the adjusters are not operating properly or after the rear brake shoes and linings have been replaced.
When the brake pedal is applied, hydraulic fluid pressure forces the pistons in the rear wheel cylinder outward, moving the rear brake shoes and linings against the brake drum.
The rear drum brake system includes the parking brake mechanism. Refer to Section 206-05 .

Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
  4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
  5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
  7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
  1. Raise vehicle again.
  2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
  3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
  1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
  2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
  3. Lower the vehicle

  2. Turn the adjuster nut until the lining just contacts the J 21177-A. Park brake shoe to brake rotor clearance: 0.6604 mm (0.026 in)
  3. Repeat steps 1-3 for the opposite side.

Handbrake does not always work at first attempt. if you pull the handbrake up and down a few times without the button pressed eventually it catches on the ratchet and works.


Check the return spring on the parking brake lever as wll as the gear teeth:
  1. Make sure the parking brake cable is free and is not frozen or sticking. Make sure the brake shoes are properly adjusted.
  2. Raise and safely support the rear wheels.
  3. Apply the parking brake while counting the number of notches. Check the desired parking brake stroke; it should be 7-9 notches.
  4. If adjustment is required, remove the adjusting nut cover and turn the adjusting nut located at the front of the parking brake cable.
  5. After adjustment, check there is no looseness between the adjusting nut and the parking brake lever, then tighten the locknut.
Do not adjust the parking brake too tight. If the number of notches is less than specification, the cable has been pulled too much and the automatic adjuster will fail or the brakes will drag.
  1. With the parking brake lever in the released position, turn the rear wheels to confirm that the rear brakes are not dragging.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Check that the parking brake holds the vehicle on an incline.
