    I couldn’t find anything on YouTube about gaining access to the e brake adjustment, so I just pulled the cup holder out. This is going to be easy!

    You’ll need a swivel head wrench. My e brake now works like it should. This is a 15 minute job for a manual.

    I thought you adjusted them at the drums first?

    Most of the adjustment is made at the drum...not the console. Unless something has gone wrong, adjusting the shoes correctly should be all you need

    That’s what I thought. Then if that didn’t get them adjusted enough you went to adjust the cable.

    The e brake has never worked. I thought replacing the rear brakes, and of course adjusting, would’ve worked, it didn’t. The cable can become loose/stretched and should be adjusted under the console.

    The cable adjustment is mainly for adjusting the cable when the shoes are already adjusted properly....like when replacing damaged cables

    I had to do this on my 99 Tacoma at 225,000 miles. The adjustment for 1st gens are under the truck. I bought my 2nd gen used, so I’m not sure why I had to this, like I said it never worked. I adjusted the new shoes until they were snug to the new drums, then braked in reverse several times. The truck brakes great. A quick google search led me to the cable adjustment.

    *I also replace all the hardware in the drums.

    I’ve got to do this on the runner. It has a caliper emergency brake that’s activated by the cable. E-brake is going to the floor and you can actually drive with it on it’s out so bad. I looked to see about adjusting it and only thing I could find was the same you did with the cable. The runner actually has a separate disc for the e-brake. I can’t find any info on that. Wonder if they changed the design or something?

    The only YouTube video that I found was for 2005 4 runner, it was similar to what I did. Yours sounds totally different.

    The cup holder just pulls straight out with little effort. I assume this is where the kids hide their stash. ;)
