Parking Brake Adjustment

Lately, my parking brake was feeling a little sloppy, so I decided to see how hard it was to adjust it myself.
With new cars and trucks, we all know how hard those "simple" things can be when compared to the days gone by. (My green 1980 Chevy Monza comes to mind!)
I was rather surprised to find how easy it is to adjust the Titan's parking brake! All you need is a 10mm wrench. From inside the truck, look underneath where the parking brake pedal is. You will see a brass-colored bolt on a threaded shaft. With the parking brake off, tighten the nut clockwise untill the adjustment suits your taste. That's it. No crawling on the ground, no taking interior trim panels off, nothing!
Just one more reason I love this truck!

(sorry if the pic is a little blurry)

The proper parking brake adjustment should still be done from inside the brakes themselves though with the wheel removed.

The best was to do it is to actually set the parking brake and adjust it to make certain that the pads are touching the rotors while engaged. This way you know that they are releasing properly which will eliminate glazing.

^^ True, by tightening the cable you are only removing the slack but it does not address the true problem.
