Double check real quick that the E-brake is off,, also check for play in the E-brake cable, also open up the bleeder to make sure there is no pressure in the line. if all looks good then I would try and use a ' deadblow mallet ' to try and loosen the drum -- if a deadblow mallet is not availible, you can use a small 2x4 and a regular hammer ( place the 2x4 against drum body and smack the 2x4 with the hammer ).

I have had luck using a flat bar on each side. get it in the drum and pull on one then the other and sometimes both at the same time. also open the brake bleader or crack the line. just keep inching it forward.

Just replaced rear brake shoes--parking brake feels like it is not tight enough when engagaed--


The brake shoes need adjusting. Disengage the parking brake.
Before fitting new shoes you should slack off the parking brake cable completely. Locate the adjuster(just follow the parking brake cable. Undo the locknut and slack off the cable.
Remove the rear wheels and drums again. You will find a screw-in type adjuster between the shoes. Turn the adjuster to increase the distance between the shoes. The left and right wheel's adjusters turn in opposite directions to achieve the same result. Fit the drum to see if it slides over the pads easily. Do so until you start having diffyculty sliding the drum over the shoes. Fit the drum and rotate it. You should not hear any scraping or have any resistance on the drum when it is rotated. Refit the wheels. Test the parking brake. If it is still too slack adjust the cable under the car until you when you engage the parking brake it engages fully after 3-5 clicks.

2001 Kia sportage - rear driver wheel locks up randomly. Seems to happen most when I've backed up and put the brakes on, then going forward the rear wheel is seized solid! It happens randomly, and often...


Remove the brake drum and check the brake shoes. I had a similar problem with my 99 Sportage. The brake shoe separated from the backing and was jamming the brake drum. A new set of brake shoes fixed the problem.

How do you adjust parking brake On A Kia Sedona


Underneath your vehicle, a steel threaded cable comes from the back of one hub and is joined by a short cable from the other hub--then the original cable runs to a threaded end with an adjuster nut in it--and one smaller nut on the end outside of that--(this is the equalizer bar)--you'll see it real close to your transmission.
You might have to jack-up the back of the vehicle???
Pull the parking brake lever up sharply and then release it.
Pull the parking brake lever to the second click and leave it there. You're looking for a slight drag of the brake shoes when you spin the wheels.
To increase the drag, get under at the equalizer bar and turn the adjusting nut to take up the slack in the cables. Get out and spin the rear wheels if you think it's to tight.
I will say don't be afraid to crank on it for a while as in this case, a little adjustment really does not go a long way. When you think you have the drag right, go back in the car and pull the brake up the the fourth click. At this point the wheels should be locked and you should not be able to turn them even when trying hard. If you can, tighten them up a little more.
Once you've done this, release the brake and make sure the wheels spin freely. If they are still binding due to the parking brake, back off the adjustment a little. And that's basically the whole adjustment procedure.

Can't get the rear drum off my 2000 dodge caravan.


After the wheel is removed you need to spray penetrating oil around the lug studs. Next, hit the drum with a hammer between the studs until it pops, now pull it off.

How can adjust the emergency brake for my 2004 GMC Envoy...


YOUR MOST LIKELY PROBLEM IS IN THE REAR ROTORS. THE PARK BRAKE AREA WILL RUST INWARD WEARING OUT THE PARK BRAKE SHOE. THE ADJUSTER IS UNDER THE ROTOR ALSO. ONE ON EACH SIDE.

ADJUST THE SHOE OUT UNTIL IT TOUCHES THE DRUM AND THEN BACK IT OFF ABOUT 6-7 CLICKS.
