Learn about your Parking Brakes

When do parking brakes need to be serviced/adjusted?

It is important to inspect your parking brake’s cables periodically to check their condition. If they look rusted, loose, or worn, you should have your parking brake serviced. You can also check to make sure your parking brake is working properly by pulling it and checking to make sure the cables are tightening and clamping your brakes. You should also have your parking brake checked whenever you have your regular hydraulic brakes checked or serviced.
