Can you post the section on Parking Brake Shoe Adjustment? My 2002 F-250 is giving me a fit.

Also, when I engage it, there is no light on the dash. Shouldn't there be one for the Parking Brake?

Thanx in advance.

The parking brake is just a regular drum brake inside the rotor. There is a window on the lower side of the backing plate that provides access to the star adjuster between the lower part of the shoes. Take the rubber cap out and use a brake spoon to adjust the shoes to the proper tension. If you don't have a brake spoon you can do it with a flat bladed screw driver.

You gotta go old school man.

Thanx PGreenSVT, I tried those exact steps last week. I pulled both rotors, and the material on the shoes looked sufficient.

I adjusted both sides until I started getting some resistance on the pedal, then backed off about 4-5 clicks. It was working OK when I put the wheels back on.

Now, a few days later, it's back to working like crap.

Any other advice for a F-250 noob?

They should adjust automatically when you press on the brake while going in reverse. Get them set again and do a few reverse stops and see if it doesn't help.

That works on the 2002? I didn't see any mechanisms inside there that would adjust the star wheel. I thought that only worked on drum style service brakes, not the the disc/drum combo.

Going out right now to try it, and if it works I'll be back to eat my words and sing your praises.
