How do you adjust the parking brake on a 2005 ford freestar with disc brakes

Answers :

There is a cable that you adjust.
If you pull the boot down around the base of the hand brake you will find that there is a cable with a threaded rod, turn the nut on the rod clockwise to tighten the brake, the proper adjustment is to have the brake handle start to engage the park brake when it clicks three times, if you are unable to reach this then you may have to adjust the part brake shoes at rear, there is a small slot at the backing plate of the brake at each well, there is be a little oval rubber plug in it, remove the plug and look inside you will see a little wheel with teeth on it, move that wheel with a flat blade screwdriver in a downward clockwise direction, with the wheel off the ground and the park brake off, when you fell just a little drag on the wheel the adjustment is correct, then recheck park brake adjustment as outlined above
Whe adjusting headlights, pull the vehicle as close as you can to the wall/garage door, etc. Stick a some sort of tape or marking thru the center of the beam on the wall. Back up vehicle 25 feet away from the wall. Adjust the beam so the top of the beam shines 2-4 inches below the mark you have made on the wall.
