My service manual does not say how to adjust the parking brake on my 08. Is there a link?

Adjustment of the Brake Lock is under the Maintenance section (3-19 in my manual) of the Service Manual. Basically, if it does not 'hold' within 3 to 6 notches (out of 9 notches) then it is time to adjust it. For adjustment you need to pull the parking brake up one notch - then loosen the 'lock nut' then turn the 'adjust bolt' - but not so tight that the rear wheel does not spin. Don't forget to tighten the 'lock nut' (which is at the pivot point of the brake lever back by the parking brake pad assembly).

Thank you gentleman. I was not looking in the correct chapter.
I was looking in chapter 16 repair and not under the maintenance chapter. Sleep

Thank you bikerboy, where ever you are.
I was feeling a bit bewildered when asking the question but was sure that some one some where on the great site could help.
It feels even better, when some one of my age (64) was a bit confused also.
As for you young (wiper snappers) out there HOLD ON because you to will be
looking down at younger people and saying. Hello there young man, I was once your age. affraid

Sure, and then I'll get replies like:

"When you was my age? When my old man was my age, when my brother was my age... You was never my age, none of ya! And the sooner you creeps get hip to that, the sooner you'll dig us!"

Man I love that movie!

I'm sure you mean whippersnapper, in the UK a wiper snapper is a drunken oik that goes round getting his kicks breaking off and bending the windscreen wipers on parked cars on his way home from the pub. Evil or Very Mad

Thank you for clarifying. My father would just say
"why you old whippersnapper " and I never knew what it meant.
My father never liked me that much. :lol!:
whip·per·snap·per   [hwip-er-snap-er, wip-] Show IPA
noun
an unimportant but offensively presumptuous person, especially ayoung one.
Word Origin & History

whippersnapper
1674, apparently a "jingling extension" [OED] of *whip-snapper "acracker of whips," or perhaps an alteration of snipper-snapper(c.1590). Cf. also late 16c. whipperginnie, a term of abuse for awoman.

which way do you turn the adjustment bolt? I would think Clock-wise.

They appear to be held in by the pad pins and the whole caliper isn't too difficult to remove. The experts will be along shortly to give you chapter and verse !
