    Icon91 Parking Brake Adjustment - 2003 Jeep liberty

    How do you adjust the parking brake on a 2003 Jeep Liberty with four wheel disc brakes. The disc pads are ok but you have to pull the parking brake handle too far up to engage. Thanks

    Pull the handle up to where you want it to be at, and reverse to tighten the parking brake.

    The parking brake on the Liberty is self adjusting.
    This is an excerpt from the service manual.

    Yeah, it self adjusts itself when you back up and it is engaged.

    several fo them, including mine, broke at the lever inside. Sometimes when I pulled the brake it would catch fine; other times it pulled all the way up and nothing happened.

    Dealer eventually replaced broken lever under warranty (about $300 as I recall).

    And while it's self adjusting, there is an ajustment inside the rear hubs. The parking brake uses a drum brake inside the hub. It doesn't engage the disc brake. It's a dedicated brake.
