Adjust Parking Brake Cable Service

What is the parking brake cable all about?

The parking brake (also known as emergency brake) cable is a steel cable that is very thin. It connects the parking brake lever to the parking brake shoes. When you activate the parking brake, the cable pulls on the parking brake shoes, which causes them to clamp onto the brake drum or rotor. If the parking brake cable gets too much slack, the parking brake won’t work, and the cable will need to be adjusted.

Keep in mind:

  • After adjusting the parking brake cable, the parking brake should always be tested.
  • When the parking cable is adjusted it should be inspected to see if it needs to be replaced.

How it's done:

  • Adjust parking brake cable
  • Check the parking brake

Our recommendation:

The brake system is the most important part of your vehicle, but sometimes the parking brake is overlooked. Your parking brake cable should be inspected during all maintenance and servicing. If you ever notice that your vehicle’s parking break isn’t working effectively or at all, then you should schedule an inspection immediately.

What are the common symptoms indicating you need to adjust the parking brake cable?

  • Parking brake does not work
  • Parking brake lever is easy to push

How important is this service?

Your parking brake shoes are connected to the parking brake lever by the parking brake cable. When you deploy the parking brake lever, the parking brake cable is pulled taut. This pulls on the parking brake shoes, and causes them to clamp on the rear brake drums or rotors. This clamping causing keeps your wheels from being able to move, and secures your car when it is parked. If the parking brake cable becomes too loose, then the tension created by pulling the parking brake lever isn’t enough to move the parking brake shoes. As a result, when you pull the parking brake lever, the parking brake will not work effectively.

Gustavo was on time and very knowledgeable so I was confident he could find what was wrong with my brakes. Most importantly, he is a very honest mechanic which is very hard to find. I did not need some repairs that the dealer I normally go to told me I needed. Gustavo showed me what I needed and explained everything. Thank you again for the honest and quick repair.

Keith did an excellent job replacing the Master Brake Cylinder in my 1993 Chevrolet Pickup. I definitely can tell a big difference when I apply my brakes. My truck stops a lot smoother now, where as before I had to pump the brakes to stop. Keith is very knowledgeable, efficient and thorough. I will continue to call on Keith whenever I have an issue concerning my truck. Thanks Keith! Sincerely, Sheila Lira

Emmette was great! He was a short notice replacement for the original mechanic scheduled to the work. He contacted me early the day of the appointment to see if he could come earlier. We agreed on a revised time, he arrived and immediately got to work. Took the time time to explain the process and the ins/outs of my brake system. All work was professionally done and he followed up with a quick walk around of my vehicle making recommendations for things I might want to consider down the road.
