SOURCE: I need the instructions for adjusting the tension on shimano M520 pedals

If the above answer didn't help; there are small silver set-screws on the top and bottom of each pedal. These require a 3mm allen wrench to adjust.

My recommendation is to loosen the bolt until it stops by turning it to the left. This resets them to their loosest setting. There are notches that you'll feel - it is helpful to count the notches so you know how far you have loosened the pedal and allow you to set all the mechanisms to roughly the same release tension. Then turn the wrench to the right more notches than you loosened it. Perform this twice on each pedal and you will have tightened the pedals.

How to adjust parking brake. do you need to take anything apart?


You cannot adjust the cables on a minivan manually. the tension is automaitcally adjusted by the self adjuster on the pedal release.

The park brake cables on this vehicle have an automatic self adjuster built into the park brake pedal mechanism. When the foot operated park brake pedal is in its released (upward most) position, a clock spring automatically adjusts the park brake cables. The park brake cables are adjusted (tensioned) just enough to remove all the slack from the cables. The automatic adjuster system will not over adjust the cables causing rear brake drag.

Due to the automatic adjust feature of the park brake pedal, adjustment of the parking brake cables on these vehicles relies on proper drum brake.

When the park brake pedal is applied the self adjuster is by-passed and the pedal operates normally to engage the park brakes.

When a service procedure needs to be performed on the park brake pedal or the park brake cables, the automatic self adjuster can be manually locked out by the service technician.

I am looking for pedals to a Vitamaster Air 990 exercise cycle. I was informed Vitamaster is defunct when I called their 800 number. I also called s&r Workout Warehouse and they do not provide parts...


Only thing I can thing of doing is resizing and tapping the crank arm (if good shape) for newer pedals. If that does not work I guess your in the market for a new bike. Good Luck

Most of the time you can find an aftermarket pedal that will fit your bike. The important part is the size of the pedal shaft. Most commonly they are either 9/16" or 1/2". I will post a link to a video on how to measure the pedal shaft diameter as well as a link to some possible replacement pedals.

Adjusting Padking Brake with 4 wheel disc brakes.


Hope this helps. This is out of the factory manual. Let me know if this works for you.
PARKING BRAKE NOTE: Tensioner adjustment is only necessary when the tensioner, or a cable has been replaced or disconnected for service. When adjustment is necessary, perform adjustment only as described in the following procedure. This is necessary to avoid faulty park brake operation.
  1. Raise vehicle.
  2. Fully back off cable tensioner adjusting nut at equalizer to create slack in cables.
  3. Remove rear wheel/tire assemblies. Remove brake calipers and rotors.
  4. Verify park brakes are in good condition and operating properly.
  5. Verify park brake cables operate freely and are not binding, or seized.
  6. Check park brake shoe adjustment.
  7. Reinstall rotors and make sure rotors turn freely.
  8. Reinstall brake calipers. Tighten guide pin bolts to 41 n·m (30 ft.lbs.)
  9. Reinstall wheel/tire assemblies after brake shoe adjustment is complete.
  10. Lower vehicle enough for access to park brake foot pedal. Fully apply park brakes
NOTE: Leave park brakes applied until adjustment is complete.
  1. Raise vehicle again.
  2. Mark tensioner rod 6.35 mm (1/4 in.) from edge of tensioner bracket Adjustment Mark On Cable Tensioner Rod
  3. Tighten adjusting nut at equalizer until mark on tensioner rod moves into alignment with tensioner bracket
CAUTION: Do not loosen, or tighten the tensioner adjusting nut for any reason after completing adjustment.
  1. Lower vehicle until rear wheels are 15-20 cm (6-8 in.) off shop floor.
  2. Release park brake foot pedal and verify that rear wheels rotate freely without drag. Verify pedal returns to fully released position.
  3. Lower the vehicle
