My e-brake keeps loosening to the point of being useless. It did this about a year and a half ago (~14,000 miles) and I don't want to keep going to a shop to get it fixed since it seems to happen a lot. Anyone know a thread I can get pointed to on where to find this? The one I found somehow changed topics before anyone explained how to do it.
If it happens too often do I just need to change the rear brakes?
Is it the hand brake cable that gets loose or that the rear brakes get out of adjustment (not auto adjusting tighter)?
I have the opposite problem. Since my 4runner is a manual, I use the handbrake a lot when off-roading. Using it like I do, the rear brakes overadjust and sometimes I'll have to back them off before the next day of wheeling or drive home. When I rebuild my brakes, I will be leaving the self adjusters off.
