   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.

How do you adjust parking brake


The parking brake lever usually activates a cable that is attached to the rear drum brake. You can look for the connection at the parking break lever in the car and there many be an adjustment nut that you can tighten - this is only a small adjustment as is getting under the vehicle and just tighten up the nut. Typically, if the parking break does set the break firmly with a small push - pull (depending on the type) is means your break pads are getting worn down.

I need to adjust my parking brake on my 2003 Expedition. It does not hold as tightly as it use to. Is this something that can be easily adjusted?


there should be an adjusting screw around the lever that is used to apply the parking brake. if you tighten this until there is a slight drag in the back tires and then back off two full turns then that will adjust the parking brake.

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;

2004 Mercury Mountaineer Emergency Brake Adjustment


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
