If you look on the backside of the rear wheels you will see a rod coming out. This is what applys the hydraulic parking break. Try putting some lube on it and move it back and forth a few times to free it up. I found it easier to remove the wheel and rotor to get in and check everything out.

SOURCE: my parking brake is sticking

Either the switch on the lever is not adjusted or is going bad, or the return spring is weak. You could try spraying the cables where they enter the outer coverings with wd 40 or other spray lube and making sure that the cables are not hanging up as well. (good to do once in a while anyhow as maintenance)

How can I adjust the parking brake on my 2002 GMC Sierra HD


Umm... I could be wrong but... the 2002 GMC 2500 has rear *disc brakes with an interior set of *drum brakes for the E brakes. check with your dealer because there was a recall on the E brake for some early 2000 GMC trucks. also there is a manuel adjuster for the parking brakes.

My 2004 gmc sierra z71 truck the emergency brake handle inside the truck will not release the pedal when applied. When I pull on the handle it will hang there like there is no pulling the cable to release...


You could have a sticking cable to one of the rear brakes. Need to inspect it from below. If you do a lot of off-roading the cable may only need lubricated.

Parking brake won't release fully -rear wheels (brake drums) were smokin'


Parking brake cables get rusted inside their guide tubes and stick. They can be replaced by an average mechanic.
