parking brake slight rubbing
Posted 14 April 2010 - 11:47 AM
Just put new rear rotors on.
Parking brake shoes are rubbing on rotor hat, both sides, while spinning the rear wheels when the rear is center jacked up. It makes noise even if the caliper is off (i.e. no pads).
Parking brake is disengaged in cabin.
Looking at the engagement mechanism seems to be that the shoes can't be disengaged more, they are up against the stops but the hub is on so can't get in there to see. Flexing the cable at the wheel will slightly engage the shoes.
I think I'll pull the ebrake and drive 200 yds to wear the shoes down a bit. Hope I don't warp the rotors by doing that.

You may try loosening the cable adjustment at the handle for a little extra slack. If that doesn't fix it pull the shoes out and sand them down a bit.
