PARKING BRAKE ADJUSTMENT

2003 Honda CRV

Brakes problem
2003 Honda CRV 4 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 50,000 miles

I have recently replaced the rear dual disc/drums. The brakes are fine however the parking brake no longer holds the vehicle efficiently. Is the adjustment best done under the carpet (cable) or at the shoes? Both can be adjusted.

Hi hondaukcrvauto,

The adjustment should be done at the wheels first and if the cable is too tight, you need to release the tension at front.

When brake shoes adjustment is complete, adjust the front to have just minimal free travel.
