    Parking brake

    Just adjusted the shoes since the hand brake wasn't doing anything. However I can't seem to find where you adjust the cable. Can anyone show me where that is?

    Isn't there 2 places to adjust it?

    1 by each wheel, and 1 where it splits into the 2 sperate lines for each wheel, under the driver seat roughly?

    I could be wrong, I could be thinking of the jeep.

    Looked where it splits into 2 and didn't see it. Don't recall if I looked well enough behind the rotor

    Are they the self adjusting ones?

    Where you need to on/off/on/off with the hand brake?

    I'm not there at all tonight, and I still have 3 more hrs of class.

    Self adjusting ones 99% of the time don't self adjust, not that I know whether or not it does so. I also checked at the base of the handle (I did also try pulling the lever multiple times). At the very least my parking brake holds the car on a slope now.

    And I believe a quick jump into a titty thread will wake you back up

    Just thought I heard someone say at some point it's self-adjusting. Pretty much just throwing every idea that comes to mind, sorry.

    Been to AAG and back about 6x now, lol. Those threads have slowed with iroc's vacations.
