Best Answer

To adjust the emergency brake:1. Slide the driver's seat all the way forward2. Fold the seat back all the way forward3. Lift up the carpet patch that is just left-of-center under the driver's seat. It is held with Velcro on both sides (that is why the staples in the carpet). You will see the cover to the adjuster4. Unscrew the bolt (10mm?) on the left side of the cover and the Phillips screw on the right side of the cover5. Remove the cover (I lifted the front and slid it forward until the back end cleared the carpet)6. Release the parking brake completely7. On the adjuster, remove the return spring 8. Block the front wheels and jack up the rear wheels9. Apply the parking brake one click10. Tighten the adjusting nut (you will have to use a Crescent wrench on the cable end of the adjster to keep it from turning) while rotating the rear wheels. Stop tightening when the brakes just start to drag11. Release the brake and make sure that the rear wheels spin freely12. Lower the rear wheels, re-install the cover, tighten the bolt and screw, and put the carpet back down11.

How do you adjust emergency cable in 2004 ford f250 supper cab?

good question. you do not adjust cable on emergency brake in 2004 f250. the emergency brakes are drum type brakes inside the rear brake disk on each wheel.if you know how o adjust drum brakes it is the same adjustment for emergency brake on this vehicle. on the back of the drum there is a small rubber cap. remove this cap and with a flat screwdriver or adjuster tool, you turn the the serated wheel inside the brake drum to adjust the brake shoes out till nearly touching the brake drum it is best to do this with the rear wheels jacked up off the ground, so you can spin the wheel while adjusting. by spinning wheel you will feel when brake shoe is starting to slow wheel and you will then know to stop adjusting. do this on both wheels if you over adjust you will burn brakes out and have to replace brake shoes. this is a pain as you have to remove the disk brake caliper and rotoar to get at the emergency brake

If the parking brake doesn't hold my guess is the parking brake shoes are shot. Also inspect the parking brake cables, they may be stuck and in need of replacement. The parking brake is designed to hold the vehicle in a parked position and not to be used as an emergency brake to stop a vehicle.
