Hand Brake Not Working Properly



dear friends,

I recently owned Toyota starlet ep 91 MT and I use few topic to get advice from you guys. Again I need another help.

Today I was try to drive my car on hill around 45 degree angle, (on a 45 degree incline slop )

in middle I stopped and I try to use hand break for avoid rolling back.

But even fully pull the hand break leaver car start to rolling back,

Is it problem with my hand brake, or Is it natural in that kind of angle?

pls advice

Thank you

I assume it's time for you to replace rear brake liners. in this model the handbrake would be automatically adjust each and every time you apply handbrakes. only instance it cannot adjust properly is due to worn out brake liners or some issue in this auto adjusting mechanism.

As harshan said, first check your brake liners...if they are good...check the self adjsuter mechanism...

if all those checks out...chances are the cable has reached it's time. since these are large cables, it tend to flare out and still work... the tension will be less, adjustment would go for a toss but it will still work

Happened to me once.

Took the truck to a cabling place and sorted it out within a couple of hours.
