Hi vicente0520,

Minor Adjustment (CR-V)
1. Release parking brake lever fully. Move driver's seat all the way forward. Pull back carpet under driver's seat. Remove screw and bolt for parking brake equalizer cover. Remove return spring. Pull parking brake lever one click. Tighten adjusting nut until parking brakes drag slightly when rear wheels are turned.
2. Release parking brake lever fully, and check that parking brakes do not drag when rear wheels are turned. Readjust if necessary. Reinstall return spring and parking brake equalizer cover. Make sure parking brakes are fully applied when parking brake lever is pulled all the way.

NOTE: Minor parking brake adjustments (1-2 clicks) can be made with adjusting nut in the equalizer. If a larger adjustment is required, follow major adjustment procedures using an adjuster at parking brake drum. See MAJOR ADJUSTMENT (CR-V) . After installing new parking brake shoes and/or new rear brake disc/drums, make sure you drive vehicle for breaking in of brakes.
