Autobox Parking brake question

Without my E-brake on, my vehicle rolls around even with the parking brake on??? Is there an adjustment for this?? Anyone else have this happen?

P.S. Headin down to Moab in a few hours. I will take some pictures of rovers if I see some down there. Hope to see Timm Cooper there this weekend and meet him.

Remove the cubby box liner to gain access to the Pbrake adjuster. Pull the circlip, adjust the brake, and reinstall the clip. Its that easy. If you dont pull the clip, it is more difficult as you have constant resistance.

Clarification???

So with the tranny in park, it rolls?

Or tranny in neutral?

So what's not grabbing, tranny or e-brake?

e-brake can be tightened from underneath or check the linkage on the handle under the trim inside. If your tranny isn't going all the way to park, go underneath and disconnect the linkage at the tranny. Move the shift lever inside back and forth and make sure it still has full movement. Also, move the shift arm on the tranny through it's full range of motion and make sure it makes it all the way into park and locks the tranny. I had to adjust the linkage on my rangie to make up for cable stretching over time. There is adjustment on the tranny end.

The e-brake works great. Park brake does not. I will toy around with it after Moab. I am leaving within the hour so I will ask a few more questions when I return. Thanks for the info!

What is a park brake?

Usually, e-brake and parking brake are used interchangably, both referencing that pull up handle that activates the drum behind your t-case.

If you're referring to putting the tranny in park and that holding the truck, that's a little pawl that fits into a notch on the main shaft and locks the tranny. You don't want to put the tranny into park while the vehicle is moving because the pawl isn't that big and the shock load will break it, or, more likely, your linkage has come out of adjustment and when the shift lever inside says it's in park, it's not quite there in the tranny. That's why I'm saying check your linkage. Simple to do, if I recall right, it's on the driver's side of the tranny on the side and it's a little lever with a cable attached.

Hope that helps!

-John

Thanks John,

I will look under the vehicle and find the adjustment. I am glad that there is an adjustment. For clarity I was referring to the main shaft the locks the tranny "pawl".

Aaah yes, I know that little pawl well. I worked on a lawsuit once where that broke and the people sued a company for the car rolling away. Turns out, if you stop the car by slamming it into park while moving, things tend to break. Apparently, that's a big surprise to some people.

Oh yeah, and we all know how wonderful that shifter console is in rovers with the stupid plastic cover that never works quite right. That might be impeding the movement of the shifter lever such that it does not go all the way to the park detent.
