Hi Bill, Tried saying WHOA ? Assuming it's a 'parking 'brake,can you block the wheels and have an assistant apply & release it?look under buggy for movement at the other end. A cable or mechanical linkage near one end or the other should have a provision for adjustment.Use penetrating oil,'shorten' linkage to tighten & vise versa it could also be a 'shoe' type brake applying pressure to wheel[s[ or axle. trace linkage from lever to brake. Good Luck

Diagram for right rear brake assembly for a 1993 chrylser lebaron


it's a standard leading trailing bendix brake system, small shoe to the front, larger shoe to the rear. The spring are ease. THE springs that look the same go behind the shoes, the biggest spring goes at the top of the brake assembly, and the spring thats medium goes on the bottem. Don't forget the horse shoe clip to the e-brake cable. The adjustment peice goes near the top. Adjust it all the way and spin the drum while you use the mopar adjustment tool to set the e-brake adjust ment. you should get 1/2 to one full rotation before the drum drum stops spinning. don't forget to gravitey bleed your brake (open the rear bleed screws at the same time, then the front).

How to ajust rear brake caliper 2008 dodge caravan


disc brake calipers to my knowledge have no adjustment. they have problems due to improper bleeding, pads wearing out, and stuck components which do not allow pinching and relaxing with pushing and releasing of the pedal. if you are talking about the parking brake, that is a horse of another color.
