SOURCE: 93 Ford thunderbird parking brake adjustment

on most of the cars us use a special spanner tool that resembles a bent screwdriver. you pull the plastic cap out from the back of the drum and then just turn the ajustment wheel till you feal it tighten up a litle. Remember to put the plastic cap back on. Also a old trick most people don't know about is put the car in reverse in a parking lot, and slam on the brakes. most cars have a auto ajustment that they never use.

SOURCE: How do I adjust the parking brake?

Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.

SOURCE: how do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford

FIRST adjust rear brake starwheel while spinning tire FOWARD. then alongside drivers side of car find emergency brake cable adjustment (long threaded rod with nut) . hold one end of rod with vise-grips and turn nut until emer. brake cable has less slack in it. now go inside car and apply e-brake.you dont want the pedal to stop right away but u also dont want too much"travel" in the pedal.so about halfway is IDEAL. IMPORTANT- once the brake cable is adjusted and the car wont roll foward in gear with the brake on and applying a little "gas"-make sure with brake OFF that rear wheels turn freely. hope this helps.

1993 ford taurus will not come out of park, brake lights won't come on even with new fuse


You likely have a broken wiring harness at the brake light switch connector under the dash above the brake pedal. You can buy a replacement stub harness from Ford parts.

1997 Ford contour rear brake shoe replacment help.


Brake shoe removel:

Depress and turn the retainers for the hold-down springs and pins to remove them from each shoe. Slide the brake shoe assembly--including the shoes and springs--down so you can disengage the top ends of the shoes from the cylinder and tilt them to lift them past the retaining plate.

Unhook the lower retracting spring from the front brake shoe to disconnect it. Spread the shoes apart at the bottom to remove the adjusting screw, the screw's retracting spring and the adjuster lever. Remove the front brake shoe.

Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.

Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.
  • Step 4 Pull the parking brake cable spring back with diagonal cutting pliers, grip the cable with the pliers without cutting it, unhook the cable from the parking brake lever and remove the rear brake shoe with the lever.
  • Step 5 Disconnect the parking brake lever from the rear shoe by spreading the retaining clip with a screwdriver and removing the clip and its spring washer.

    How do you adjust parking brake 02 ford taurus


    to adjust the parking brake jack up your car and put it on jack stands if you can. Under the car about where the drivers door is you will see where the cable has a nut on one end connected to a unspectacular bracket. You need to take a pair of pliers or what I think works best a pair of vise grips and hold the cable to keep it from spinning while you tighten the nut taking some slack out of the cable. You will want to adjust this until when you spin the back wheel you can feel a slight drag to it. This will tighten up your parking brake. Lower your car back down and you should be good to go

    1993 Ford Taurus


    The comment by Bunnydawg could be close to a solution. It sounds like a defective, bent or out of adjustment brake light switch. Up high on the brake pedal there is a tab that acuates a switch to turn the brake lights on and this button also allows you to shift out of park. If its only out of adjustment most styles are a threaded barrel with a set and lock nut. Simply loosen the lock nut and thread the cylinder closer to the pedal and reset the lock nut.
