IF you remove the center console around the ebrake, then remove the ebrake handle. There is an adjustment there for the ebrake. 10 mm wrench will do it. Just make sure you do not tighten it too much as the rear calipers will drag and prematurely wear out.

Actually don't do this... Its not a permanent fix. This problem will just keep happening over and over until you run out adjustment on the cable.

I had the same issue with my e-brake. I removed the rear calipers and fully compressed the caliper pistons using the proper tool. Pumped the brakes back up after reinstallation and its good.

Now its back to three clicks on the e-brake handle and the car is locked in place on a grade.

This happend to me shortly after I got the car. It was a bad rear caliper.

I found out about the brake not holding when I jacked up the car to do something to the front brakes (don't remember what). The car fell off the jackstand, thankfully I wasnt under it - although if I was going to be under it there would be wheel chocks.

As always, if I can look into any vehicle's information to check for any open recall(s), please send me a private message with the last 8 of your VIN and I'd be happy to do so!

Best,

Similar to the OP problem, my e-brake is only locking one wheel. It is enough to stop the car, but I would like it to be back to normal. Any suggestions? I tried tightening the cable, but it didn't remedy the problem.

Both calipers need replaced. The parking brake actuators are froze . Techs pulled the Ebrake handle while the car was on the rack. We could see the cams move all the way but no caliper movement. Rotors look like new also w 2000 miles on them R1 Concepts

Ok heres what was wrong. Same problem as everyone else. Tech put the car on the rack and had the lot boy pull the brake handle. Cables moved like they were supposed to and the cam looking things both moved all the way on the caliper but no movement out of either caliper. They put 2 new calipers on ,bled the brakes an adjusted the handle and its like new. Hope this helps. All under warranty. Safety related issue if they give you any crapo

I actually brought mine in last Friday for the park brake, and the dealer told he there was a service bulletin out for the parking brake and the rear calipers. Guess that's good to know.

good luck
I had one come off on mine too. I just checked today. Descided to try to adjust mine. I think I have mine adjuste with the nut all the way down on the screw part and its still a little loose.

I started havving issues after I replaced my rear brake pads. The Service manual tells me I have to take apart more then what I really do. Not sure why. When I replaced my pads, I got the special tool and turned the pistons back in like your suposed to.

Some one mentioned that tightening that lil nut isnt the best way to adjust but instead to turn the caliper pistons in. Also one of my cables (Right rear) is abit longer then my other one. I think the cables may have been streached some? I dono...
