hey guys,

i was hoping yall could help me out. i need to replace my brakes and while im on the front brakes, is there a way to tighten the parking brake i know there is a cable and what looks to be ajustment knobs. is that what they are? and if not how can i make my parking brake actually work and keep my heep parked and not roll 10 feet before i can catch it!

Thanks, Robbie

You'll have to look at the shoes first. Most of the time when the parking brake isn't working, it's because the shoes are gone or they need to be manually adjusted. The self adjusters never work right and occasionally you have to adjust the brakes by hand. After the shoes are eliminated as the problem then you can adjust the parking brake at the adjusting nuts you are talking about. My bet is after adjusting the shoes your e-brake will work fine! Cool All this is assuming you have drums in the rear.
