well is it too the point your scared of a runaway or just a little rollback? rollback is normal when parking on an incline even with parking brake engaged. Its just the drive wheels resting on the transmission teeth.We are having a problem with parking on a steep driveway. Emergency brake on, put in park, let go of brake. Car rolls back several inches! Anyone else have this problem?
With the car in neutral does the emergency brake hold? If not your emergency brake shoes need to be adjusted. The EB should hold the car to prevent the transmission parking pawl from binding. The EB shoe adjustment can be accessed by removing the rear wheels and removing the little round rubber plug from the top hat of the rotor. This gives access to the brake shoe star adjuster. With the EB disengaged just use a screwdriver prying up/down until the shoes drag on the drum and stop it, then back off until there is no drag. When both sides have been adjusted and you engage the EB you should find you can get it to hold the car without the peddle reaching the floor.Yes, we know that it is normal for a slight rollback. However, this rollback is not slight. And, it is very difficult to get the car out of Park and into Drive. It is like the gear has to work very hard to move.
I have a very steep driveway as well.We are having a problem with parking on a steep driveway. Emergency brake on, put in park, let go of brake. Car rolls back several inches! Anyone else have this problem?
