    Bear with my ignorance...04 Deville E-brake configuration

    Can someone bring me up to speed on the e-brake configuration of an 04 DHS. I don't have manuals as yet and am curious as to what type of brake application is used. Is it a manual operation of the caliper or is it a mini drum type in the back rotor?

    No drum, caliper E brake.

    Having a problem, or just curious?

    Merely curious. I bought the car just over a month ago and the dealer had to replace e-brake cables to certify it which made me wonder what system was used. My last Cad was an 85 Deville and the years gone by have definitely changed them. As fine as the 85 was, the 04 is literally a millennium ahead of it in every way and I am doing my catching up now coming off of an eight year Jeep/F150 necessity sentence. I still had the 85 until four years ago but never had the time for it. I'm learning my "new-ish" Cadillac...until the next one but then I have to learn to love the newer Cads and I'm just not there yet.

    Thanks for the tip.When I finally get the time I'll dig into it in depth...I need to learn the quirks that I can expect with this car but when I'm working (18hr+ days are normal) all of my spare time is invested in sleep

    Your parking brake (You could never use it for "E") mechanically operates the rear calipers.

    For the rear brakes only, during pad replacement, the caliper piston must be screwed back into the caliper using needlenose pliers or a "brake cube". The indents on the caliper piston face align with the indents on the new pad plates. (The pistons ratchet out to maintain proper parking brake cable tension)
