Emergency brake adjustment

I took my truck to the dealer to have the ebrake adjusted because it goes almost to the floor before engaging, and barely holds. Dealer claimed nothing wrong and wouldn't touch it. My question, is there an adjustment point to tighten it so my pedal doesn't go to the floor?

Yeah, there is. The procedure is a bit complicated though. You might want to download the manual and follow the instructions.

mine said the same thing, and wanted to charge me $200 to look at them.


i crawled under and adjusted my brake at the wheels (all good) checked the cables and they were totally slack! there is a cable adjuster about driver door area on the bottom side (inside of the frame).took up the slack and its works great! something i think if the dealership had ACTUALLY looked at it would have been a no charge or a 1/2 hour charge as it took me longer to find the wrench than to actually tighten it

It's under the truck on the drivers side? Would you mind taking a pic of you can? I can't believe the dealer blew it off, it makes me wonder if they actually changed the transmission fluid, which was the main reason I brought it in. I hate dealerships.

It always blows my mind how they try to scam people. They tried to hit me for 700$ saying I needed injector cleaning, throttle body clean, rear diff, tire rotation, etc. I do all my own work but the tranny was beyond me.

Yah, I hear yah on the scam part. I told dealer my 09 corolla brakes when applied ONLY in reverse the past few months ONLY make a loud clacking noise ONLY in reverse and never before the last few months made that very loud noise. Dealer said bring it in, we will charge you 45 bucks to do a safety inspection and check brakes, fluids, etc. I said no thanks, fix my brakes ONLY under warranty. They said that brakes are routine maintenance and may need adjusting with brakes moving around with calipers and is a common noise. I asked why now and not 26K miles ago, no good answer except wanted 45 bucks pretty bad. What the heck is a warranty for?

sorry the weather has been the pits the last few days. on my DC it is right where the back of the drivers door and front of rear door meet, on the top, inside of the frame rail. it is applied in this picture!

the nut was about half way from where it is now to the end of it. cable was totally slack. i have a steep driveway so it was a pretty high priority for me.

Btw for those doing it, it's very simple. There are 2 nuts, hold the front one and back out the back one to unlock it, then screw front nut in to tighten then re-tighten back nut to lock back in place.

Sadly they dealer told me there was no adjustment

I know this was an older thread but thanks for the info. I'm going to adjust mine soon. The E brake doesn't hold worth a darn.
