It cant be adjusted. You brakes are bad or something is messing up the auto adjustments. Clean the brakes and turn the drums if you can. If not clean the drums good with sand paper and wash it down well. DONT use water of course but a good brake cleaner.

PS a trick I use to tighten up my brakes is to have the drum off of one side. Push the brakes down slowly until I here a click or two and re install the drum. You dont want it too tight of course. It should spin freely. My brakes would be very good for a couple of months.

How do you adjust the parking brake on a 2005 buick lacrosse


Under the vehicle you will see a cable coming from both back brakes to a "t" in the middle of the vehicle. Tighten the cable till there is almost no slack by turning the nut on the bracket. Click the parking brake one or two clicks and then remove the slack until the cable is barely tight. Now your parking brake is adjusted properly.

How do i adjust e brake on 2006 kia rio


The Kia Rios (assuming yours is equipped with rear disc brakes) utilize a system that incorporates the parking brake into the rear calipers. What this means is there really isn't a way to adjust the brake itself, since it is part of your rear service brake. If you really wanted to you could adjust the cable at the parking brake lever. This would more than likely require removing your center console to get to it. The problem is if you over adjust, you will cause constant contact between the rear pads and the disc, causing premature padwear. You really shouldn't ever need to adjust the parking brake, but if your really wanted to, that would be how to do it.

How do I adjust the parking brake cable on a 1991


If the car has a center console between the seats, and the e-brake lever is there, remove the console there should be a bolt to tighten or loosen. Loosen it with the lever DOWN, pull the cable as tight as it will go with your hand and a pair of pliers. Holding the cable in place tighten the bolt or nut that secures the cable. If this doesn't fix it, have your rear brakes inspected and/or adjusted.

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.
