Changed pads and rotors last week but don't know how to adjust the E-brake. Have found some conflicting suggestions online so far.
Do you
have the same problem?

CJ Medevac-- THanks for your response
Great video for the rear brakes but does not address e-brake. As if they never need fixing.
I have done this on other rear disk cars (1990 Miata), I just can't find accurate info for my car. Where is the adjustment done, at the wheel, at the lever or somewhere in between? I have heard some people say that they are not adjustable or self-adjusting, and some say that the adjustment is inside the cabin and you need to take off the console. This is why I am confused.

THIS IS MY APPROACH TO MOST ANY ISSUE WITH MY JEEPS

MY STEP-MONSTER'S RIG IS A '96 EXPLORER, I BELIEVE IT COULD HAVE A SIMILAR SET UP TO YOURS. MAYBE. MIGHT SEE IF YOU CAN FIND A VIDEO ON IT OR A SIMILAR FORD CAR

WHEN YOU RETURN, IF THIS STILL AIN'T CUTTIN' IT, I WILL LOCATE YOU ANOTHER EXPERT, WHO MIGHT BE MORE FAMILIAR. IF ONE DOESN'T JUMP IN, IN THE MEAN TIME

I do appreciate your help! I am just a little frustrated. I watched that one already. And most of the ones sown the side. Many are for drum brakes-- done those too. Just not the same as you know.
Chilton's says that it is self-adjusting. I suspect this is for drums-- which are not available on this car. The Haine's manual is so full of incorrect info on everything I try, I am not sure why it is not in the recycling bin.
Should have bought the ford shop manual when I bought the car.
Thanks again!
