If the parking brake requires adjustment first check for any damaged cables and replace as necessary.
On vehicles with rear disc brakes check for proper operation of the parking brake shoes. Refer to the -Parking Brake Shoes- section.Cable Tension Release
- Remove the LH cowl side trim panel.
With the help of an assistant, release the parking brake cable tension by pulling down on the intermediate cable at the cable-to-cable connector clip until the parking brake control sector rotates to its stop and a 0.15 inch(4 mm) x 5.9 inch (150 mm) retainer pin can be inserted.
CAUTIONMake sure the cable-to-cable connector clip is connected to the front and rear cable before removing the brake control retaining pin, and the cable tension is reloaded slowly.
- Disconnect the cable-to-cable connector clip.
To reload the tension on the parking brake cable, follow the release procedure in reverse.
