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.

Do you
have the same problem?
Yes
No

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.
