emergency brake adjustment

Greetings,

I may be dumb as a rock but I cannot find a way to adjust my e-brake on my 2000 F350 DRW. It will not hold the truck on a hill [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/eek.gif[/img]. Is it adjustable somewhere or do I possibly need new pads or something else?? Any help appreciated!!

Re: emergency brake adjustment

Just did mine last night. I have a SRW but it should be the same. If not, someone will chime in. On the rear backing plate, there is an access hole covered by a rubber plug about an inch long. Remove the plug and adjust the star wheel a tooth or two. Adjust by inserting a blade screw driver and force one of the star teeth downward.
