Tryin to fix my Parking Brake

Hey guys. My parking brake on my 05 only works once in awhile. I have to push it down release it push it down ect ect for maybe ten times and if i'm lucky she'll engage. When it doesn't work it's really easy to push down. Is there a common easy fix for this??

I just went through the same issue... mine ended up being a rotted our e-brake backing plate. Long story short Dorman makes aftermarket backing plated for up to an 04' truck. 05' + are at the mercy of the dealer, and get ready to spend 500+ dollars for parts.

Best of Luck... that's what I thought too. After several failed attempts at adjusting I pulled the rotor off and saw that my backing plates were rotted.

Please note that even after I Replaced both sides (brand new shoes, backing plates, hardware, adjusters, etc...) new rotors, and new pads while I was there the E-Brake still didn't have an "OEM Feel" and the ebrake was quite low. It did hold the truck, but I think the cables may have stretched as well.
