EMERGENCY BRAKE ADJUSTING



my "BRAKE" light turns on in my dash,

my "foot pedal" emergency brake is a little loose,
I barely pick it up 1/4 inch or so with my foot and
the light turns off,
how can I tighten it up?

There's some type of tightening screw at the rear but seems to be individual to each brake drum...

thanks!

It's not all that, But it's mine.

RE: EMERGENCY BRAKE ADJUSTING

This post should be on the W126 Forum. You will tend get a more 'W126 focussed' audience there.

Oh yes, I'd start by adjusting the E/brake shoes in the back first. You'll find you need to get the play out before doing anything else.

Cheers, MBL
