Default How Do You Tighten Your E-Brake

Hey all! so recently I noticed my e brake has become really loose that I can lift it up with my pinky finger. Does anyone know how to tighten it? specifically for maximas.

You will want to check the shoes on the rears. In addition to that there is a hole in the boot when you lift the handle with a 10mm but I believe. You need a deep well and extension. That will titghten the cable but I recommend changing the shoes first.

So says latinmaxima, so it shall be!

Before you change out the rear parking brake shoes (not the rear pads), pop the rubber plug out of the rear disc with he hole up near 12 o'clock and use a flat blade screwdriver to adjust the star wheel a click at a time until it becomes difficult to turn the rotor by hand then back it off a click. Do the same on both sides. THEN adjust the cable slack at the handle.
