Default E-Brake

My ebrake has to be yanked to the absolutly furthest notch inorder for the car to not roll...I like leaving it in Neutral. However I wish it didn't have to be this way and it is hard for my wife to do this and than release it there some way to adjust this? Anyone else have this problem?

Default Re: E-Brake

Found this on the Do-It-Yourself web site:

I have a 2002 PT w/auto transmission. I've been experiencing a problem with front wheel brake squeal. I took the Cruiser to the dealer and they adjusted the emergency break ($35). The breaks squeal less, but still squeal. I would like to adjust the emergency brake a little further, how would I go about it? Thanks. - Rob, from the USA.

I'm not sure what adjustments your dealer made, but the parking brake is self -adjusting and only applies to the rear brakes. The parking brake lever automatic-adjusting feature continuously applies minimal tension to the parking brake cables to keep them in adjustment at all times. Therefore, the parking brake cable system does not require adjustment. Proper parking brake system adjustment is obtained by proper drum brake or drum-in-hat brake shoe adjustment. This section of the service manual is extensive and contains numerous illustrations and instructions, therefore we're not able to provide it in its entirety. We recommend that you borrow or purchase a service manual prior to attempting any adjustment to the brake system.
