If the parking brake requires adjustment first check for any damaged cables and replace as necessary.

On vehicles with rear drum brakes the parking brake system is self-adjusting via the automatic adjustment feature of the rear brake shoes, therefore cable tension does not need to be adjusted.

On vehicles with rear disc brakes check for proper operation of the parking brake shoes. Refer to the Parking Brake Shoes Removal & Installation procedure in this section.
