Does anyone know how to tighten the emergence brake cable on a 2001 Tacoma?
Thank you

Yeah! there should be an adjustment screw on it. Backside of the drum I think.

There's a cable that comes from the cab to about mid-line under the truck, hooks to a bellcrank, then cables to the rear end area. You tighten the bolt on the bellcrank.

Hit it with PB Blaster and let it soak for a while first. Mine truck has never seen snow or salt but it was still crusty.
