If you look down at the parking brake lever from above there should be a tightning bolt to adjust the position of the lever. Never done this on Yaris, Let me know if the adjustment nut is there, if not I will check further. Thanks

I replaced my rear brakes. Does the emergency brake automatically adjust itself?


Yes.....and no. Emergency brake should have been checked during brake pad replacement.
Most do adjust to new pads...ie: return to factory adjustment setting due to new pads .

The E brake lever should be applying braking to the wheels after three clicks are heard during application of the Emergency brake.

Lift rear of car and apply emergency brake to the third click. Now both rear wheels should drag equally but not be locked up.
.
If not, adjustment required.

However, late model cars need a scanner to pull back the pistons and install pads.

Adjusting the parking brake on 03 pontiac vibe


If you look under the van on the driver side (usually) you'll see where the two cables from the rear inter-connect with the main cord to the front. Here, you should find an adjustable bolt that you can tighten. If it is not here, it may need to be tightened from there rear tires.

If you have drum brakes in the rear, these are most likely "self-adjusting" brakes, which may interact with the emergency brake. Everytime you back up, and apply the brakes, you are activating the self adjuster (you would have seen this located at the bottom of the brake system between the two brake pads. This is the self adjuster. Try going in reverse at about 5 miles per hour, and hitting the brakes firmly (not slamming on them). Drive forward again, and firmly press the brakes. Go in reverse again, and apply brakes firmly again; (do this about 4 or 5 times to get the rear brakes adjusted). Try the emergency brake again and if still not tighter, purchase or look in your repair manual as to how to adjust the emergency brake.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

How do I adjust emergency brake cable on 1999 ford taurus. I replaced rear brake pads, cylinders and drums, but now have no emergency brake so need to know how to adjust.


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.

Brake drum wont come off


Jack up the desired side and put it on jackstands. Now make sure the front wheels are blocked against front or rear motion and make sure the brakes are off, this includes the emergency or hand brake.

The pressure of the rear brake pads against the drums should be minimal enough that you can wiggle the drums off. You should not need to adjust the cables - which are for the emergency brake connection.

Grab the brake drum with both hands on opposing sides and gently wiggle back and forth while pulling out toward you. Some of the tension will be from the pads and some will be from the bolts. Once you advance it a few millimeters, it will start to get easier.

As always with brake work, be sure not to disturb the dust or breathe it. Using proper brake cleaner products can really help your health down the road.

Whistling sound coming from the rear when car is in motion.


If the whistling changes when applying brakes it is just your warning indicator letting you know that the pads are getting very thin.
You did not give a more detailed description so I hope this helps.

Emergency brake repair


sounds like you need an emergency brake adjustment. Around 35 dollars. I'm sure while it's being adjusted the brtakes will also be inspected. Rear brakes might also be low.

Parking or emergency Brake problem


Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.
