I'm having an issue with mine as well. It works but I have to "fully engage" the parking brake or it doesn't hold the truck still. There is NO adjustment on mine at all so I was thinking I might have to replace mine as well.
What did you end up doing? Why did you need to completely replace it?

I would look at your rear brakes and the associated cables first. Chances are that the problem is there and not the brake mechanism. Your cables stretch over time and lose their power.

Default Re: parking brake

Today, I parked and engaged my parking brake pedal, it went about halfway down then went loose. The pedal itself still clicks down as usual and will stay down until released (by handle). I felt around the area of the pedal but could not find anything that seemed broken or out of place...

Now it is does not seem to be actually engaging the brakes, can anyone tell me what to check on it to see if it needs to be repaired or replaced?

If there are any good online links that shows diagrams or schematics that would be great..
Thank you much

----------

My '94 Ranger rolle dout of my driveway and hit a tree, a fence, a carport, and a car. It got up to 30 mph or so in reverse even though it was in first gear and the parking brake was on! I had the brakes completely redone 6 months ago, and the parking brake was still pressed to the floor when it crashed.
