: parking brake

My parking brake doesnt seem to work very well. When I park on my driveway (slight decline), the car still rolls forward when I put it in park and set my parking brake. The parking brake pedal is very easy to push down and will still roll with it on and in neutral. Is this something that can be easily adjusted? Anyone else with a loose parking brake?

There is a "turnbuckle" underneath the driverside of the vehicle. It is attached to the parking brake cable and can be tighened to improve the function of the parking brake. However, it may be at the limit of adjustment. If this is the case, you would either need to replace the parking brake pads, or adjust the pads at the rotors. I have never adjusted or replaced the pads, but I don't think it could be that difficult.
