98 PARKING BRAKE
1998 Chrysler Cirrus • 6 cylinder FWD Automatic • 109,000 miles
I have a 98 Chrysler cirrus lxi and something is wrong with the rear brakes. At first the parking brake wouldn't disengage, so i took off the center console and found the the brake cable had come loose from the brake handle. I released the tension on the cable and the parking brake released, but not completely. The wheels will spin now, but not as freely as they should. I tried the remove the brake drum but the adjustment gear will only move about 1 centimeter in either direction. How do i get the drum off?
Sounds like the rear parking brake cables are sticking. Usually they will release when you flex the outer casings repeatedly.
I Tried the but it didnt do anything. would that affect the movement of the adjustment gear in the drum?
Nope. It would help the spring-loaded cables relax. That would retract the shoes which are probably catching on a ridge of rust buildup on the edge of the drums.
