Brakes problem
2004 Acura TSX 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual

I replaced the rotors and brake pads on the rear of this car. I was able to rotate the brake cylinders inwithout the use of a special tool made for that purpose. I used an old dull one inch wide chisle set in the groves to push and turn the cylinders in by hand. I drove the car and the brakes seem to work fine with no noise or pulling to the side and I pulled the emergency brake up, felt resistance half way up and the car held in place.
My daughter tells me the car rolled down a hill after leaving it in neutral and the parking brake pulled up. Did I miss something? Should I have ajusted the emergency brake and if so how is that done?

Ok the park brake is only made to assist the car from rolling not completely stop it from being able to if on a steep enough hill and one should alway's turn the front wheels the right direction to stop it from rolling much further then a slight turn if it does roll. Now as for missing anything I dought it but the e-brake can be adjusted by pulling the e-brake handle about 10 times.
