PARKING BRAKE

2000 Dodge Caravan • 146,500 miles

On my 2000 Caravan when you apply the parking brake it will start to hold if you push real easy on the pedal. But in order to get to hold with sufficent pressure you have to push down a little harder. When I try to apply more pressure the pedal slips free and goes all the way down and the brake does not hold at all. You can push about two to three clicks and then it slips free and goes to the floor. Any ideas?

The rachet may be bad. Thats the pedal assembly from your description.

Is this something I have to purchase from the dealer? How difficult is it to change?
