REAR BRAKES
« on: August 11, 2023, 11:01:32 AM »

I just discovered last night that I need new rear pads. I am not real familiar with this system. Question, will winding in the calipers and replacing the pads, make my parking brake tighter, or will I need to manually adjust the parking brake? (it used to hold)

Replacing the pads should tighten it up. If not there is an adjuster at the bottom of the ebrake lever. (don't mess with that until you have replaced the pads though)
