Raise and support the rear of the vehicle and release the parking brake. Loosen parking brake cable adjuster under vehicle. With engine running depress the brake pedal several times until clicking sound from rear brakes is no longer present. Adjust the rear brakes. Apply parking brake 4 to 7 notches and retighten parking brake cable. Apply parking brake using 44 lbs of force counting the number of notches. Adjust parking brake stroke to required setting by tightening or loosening parking brake cable. Release parking brake and ensure rear wheels rotate freely. Readjust rear brakes and adjust warning lamp switch if necessary.
