The rear brakes of the Caravan are adjusted automatically. Each time you set the emergency brake slack will be taken up. You can speed up this readjustment while parked, engine off, by "pumping" the emergency brake while pulling out the brake release. Adjustment may take some time as the slack takeup is small with each use of the emergency brake. A good habit is to use the emergency brake at least twice a day to avoid a low parking brake pedal.
