Electronic Parking Brake EPB Jaguar Type 2004
The parking brake motor sits sideways just above the differential. The differential actually has to be lowered to get it out. I climbed under my S and lubed the cables up with silicon lube before the weather got bad.
When a new motor is fitted, set up the hand brake slack.

Check with chevy a dealership service (phone call) , there are 2 different types if your car is an automatic. If your car is a standard , it could be gear lube , or even Automatic trans fluid.

SOURCE: Handbrake adjustment 1955 X Type Jaguar

There really should not be any adjustment necessary, the parking brake is self adjusting. When you first install new pads It may take several puls of the lever to get them set up.

The cables MUST be absolutely free moving, for the system to work.

The adjustment as pads wear is inside the caliper itself and it is automatic, there is a little lever on the caliper and it moves the pads ahead every time it is pulled. This lever can become sticky and not return after it is pulled. you can free it up by removing the lever and then removing the rubber dust sheild behind it. Then you clean and lubricate it.
When all is moving freely, the arm should spring back against a hard stop each time the cable is pulled.

There is an adjustment on the cables under the car, just behind the centre console. It normally does not need adjusting unless you replace the cables themselves.
To check the adjustment, you need to make sure that the little levers on the rear calipers are fully returned to their rest position, and make sure the handle inside the car is down. Then adjust the nut to take up the slack in the cables.

I dont think that they can screw up the calipers inside. I have had them apart and there is really nothing to bust. I suspect very strongly that the levers on each caliper are not moving freely.

Most places dont understand all this, even the dealers, so they sell you new cables and calipers. I know for a fact that you can make it all work if you get everything moving freely.

Adjusting hand brake


there is a cable adjuster under the center console if its got a rear ashtray just pull that out and look there.but you should remove the rear brake drums and check the shoes. and the handbrake fulcrum levers, they can sieze up. also make sure the levers return to the stops with handbrake off and the auto adjusters are working ok before adjusting the handbrake cable! it helps brake performance if you give the auto adjusters a bit of a tweak before putting the drums back on. manually adjust 3-4 clicks or until the drum goes back without binding.

Auto is in drive but still has forward motion with engine off


Are you on a hill? vehicle will roll if your handbrake is not applied. Peaple often make the mistake of thinking their transmission in "PARK" will hold their vehicle on a hill. PLEASE people do not rely on this, use your handbrake!!!!! The park pin inside your transmission is very small and is not designed to hold your car, this is what a handbrake is for.

Handbrake problem


hi fro uk when you reassembled brake shoes? did you notice the tubular bar just below b/cylinder? it fits between the two shoes and has a toothed wheel on the treaded side(l/h) this is the auto adjuster ie as tooth wheel is rotated it extends the treaded side thus adjusting shoes to drum o/k? this is normally done auto by the small lever below but when fitting new shoes you must adjust this rod with tooth wheel and keep trying drum fitting when you can fit drum /just? fit and press brake to centralise shoes to drum then adjust again if req'd so that drum fits and rotates withh shoes not binding ?? do both sides THENyou willdrums fitted you will feel b/pedal is improved ie less travel on braking ? SO FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS SLACKEN OFF H/BRAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENT /SLACK ? then proceed with the above instruction afterwards if you do as above then you pull h/brake up one notch ? then adust slack from cable to light tension release h/brake and ensure wheels rotate freely when you apply h/brake it should hold on approx four//five notch ? hope this helps
