How to adjust park brake ~ 2004 GMC Yukon
I recently bought an '04 GMC Yukon XL. The driver's brakes work fine but the park brake goes all the way to the floor. I'm familiar with older style brakes and for those the park brake cables could be adjusted. Is that still possible with these?

If it has drums then just back up and tap the brakes a couple times that should reset them, I'm not sure about disks tho.

I'll be Conlan's wing-man on this thread. If you have disks, most trucks require that the rotor be removed and the parking shoe adjusted so that the rotor jams when going back on, the adjustment is then backed off a little to let the rotor go on without drag.Ray

Nothing has changed, really -- there's a cable and you can adjust it.
Your Yukon has the combined rear discs and drums with the tophat-shaped rotors. Discs for the regular brake, little drum brakes for the parking brake. I believe there are star wheel adjusters for the drums.
I'm going to be taking my rear brakes apart on my 2004 in the next couple of weeks and am more or less planning on replacing all the parking brake components -- cables, shoes, hardware -- while I'm at it.Minneapolis area - 1997 K2500 regular cab long bed, pushes plow in the winter, carries camper in the summer - 2004 4x4 Suburban 2500 8.1, pulls 30' Airstream trailer
