PARK BRAKE SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
Rear Disc Brakes
The park brake system for this vehicle contains the "drum in hat" parking brake system. The park brake system allows a mechanical application of the rear parking brake shoes to the inner rotor surface by pulling the park brake lever. When the park brake system is applied, the effort with which the brake lever is moved is
transmitted by the cables to the brake levers which force the rear brake shoes outward against the inner rotor surface.
Rear Drum Brakes
The park brake system is applied by pulling up on the park brake lever. Applying the park brake lever places tension on the park brake cables, which actuates the rear park brake mechanism. The system mechanically forces the rear brake shoes against the brake drums, locking the rear brakes.
Park Brake Lever
This vehicle is equipped with a self-adjusting park brake lever. This mechanism automatically takes up any slack in the cables and provides the correct amount of tension in the cables when the system is released. The park brake cables cannot be manually adjusted. When operating correctly, the rear park brake actuator applies force to the rear brake shoe and forces it against the inner rotor surface. When the parking brake lever is released, the parking brakes will fully return to their mechanical stops eliminating any drag on the brake rotor.
With brake drums, you can however adjust the distance between drum and brake lining.
