have you done this? is there an adjusting wheel like on typical drum brake systems?You can fine tune the adjustment of the parking brake using the 10mm nut under the cupholders. Make sure the actual shoes are adjusted correctly inside the rear rotors as well though.
I did the same exact thing and have the same exact problem. I red somewhere today that i may need to replace the cables under my truck. I hope not as that seems like a pretty simple but major project. Meaning i assume i will have to remove the rear wheels, calipers, rotors, pull apart mu consul and hope all the rusty nuts and bolts come undone on the underside of my truck without snapping!!I took off my back wheels and wheel spacers. I tightened the parking brake so that it is at full tension at 6 clicks. The truck still rolls backwards with ease on a semi steep incline without holding at all. Has anyone learned of a know issue with our trucks parking brake or has anyone found a way to truly tighten the brake? It also will drive with minimal acceration from at dead stop with the parking brake on.
I pulled out the 'small cups insert' but can't see how to get the main cupholder out.First go under the cup holders and loosen the nut to the half way point.
Yup..... on gen 2 frontier (2005-13) the parking brake and foot brake are completely separate mechanisms. The only way to increast parking power is to remain in the truck with your foot on the brake. Also there's no leading shoe, fwd&reverse are the same.After setting the parking brake, try pumping the foot brake once or twice........ Oops, this is for generation 1.
