Adjust the parking break on a 2010 f-150?

Hi Jeff, Inspect the back plates of the brakes to see if there is a slot for inserting a feeler gauge. I would think there will be. Insert the feeler gauge into the slot and adjust until friction is felt on the blade. Adjust both rear brakes to the same clearance. Front Disc brakes are self adjusting (As should be the rear?)

Ajusting barke cable o a 2003 explore sport trac

Usually it's the brakes that need adjusting. As the breakes wear it makes the fill of the break lever seem out of adjustment. Check the brakes on the rear first. then if there are good the adjustment is a wire cable underneath the car. Also the cables tend to rust solid and not work on one or both the rear wheels. If so replace cable.You have just opened a flurry of tests now.

Since replacing rear pads, only both rear breaks are on, slightly truck will not roll freely wasupppppppp with that

If I am correct that truck has rear drum breaks? If this is the case the adjusters sound as if they were not brought in enough for proper clearance between the drums and shoes. If this is it I'd remove the rear drums and adjust for proper clearance (there should be no drag with drum breaks. If they are disk breaks I'd say the calipers are stuck and keeping tight on the discs; if this is the case I'd replace that calipers with new or rebuilt units.
I hope this may have helped,

Emergency break needs adjustment

If you have disc brakes in the rear it is very simple. The rear disc has a inner drum that has small brake shoes. These shoes rarely wear out. To adjust it take off the rear tire. Inside the rear of the unit is a little rubber plug. Remove it. Inside is a clicker that can be adjusted with a small screwdriver. One way on the clicker will tighten the other loosen. Spin the rear wheel hub until you feel it tighten as you move the clicker expander. You will feel the hub getting tigher harder to turn and hear the pads making contact with the inner drum. Repeat on the other rear drum. They are supposed to be self adjusting, but I find this not true.

Adjust rear brakes on a 2000 saturn ls

The rear breaks have self adjusters on them. If you put the car in reverse and pump the breaks this should adjust the breaks. These are drum breaks correct?
