Re: [DML] Parking brake fitting & adjustement


When you pull the rear wheel off, you'll notice towards the front of the 
caliper a large screw with a flat head, there should also be a cotter pin 
going through the head of the screw to prevent the adjustment from moving on 
its own.  When you have the caliper mounted over the rotor, remove this 
cotter pin and tighten the screw until the parking brake pads are just shy 
of rubbing on the rotor.  All of this is done with the parking brake handle 
fully released.  Put the pin back in and do the same to the other side. 
When you think you have both done give the handle a pull, the wheels should 
be locked within a few "clicks".  The pads will not move much when you pull 
on the handle so be sure you have the pads as close to the rotor as possible 
without really rubbing.
