Parking Brake Cable Adjustment

1) Release the parking brake control boot clips at the floor console by pressing inward on the base of the boot.
* Pull the parking brake control boot up and over the lever.



2) Turn the parking brake control adjustment nut to adjust the parking brake control stroke.
* Adjust the parking brake control until the parking brake control stroke is 5 notches when pulled.

3) Verify the parking brake is applied.

4) Install the parking brake control boot.

The boot removal diagram is misleading. Only the back two have locking tabs/clips. The front ones are just guides, so pressing them has no effect. What keeps the front down is a tab that hooks under the console, so the boot must be removed BACK TO FRONT. The release on the back two is a bit of a challenge, but they are the only ones that affect the release.
