Hello;

My parking brake pulls tight yet holds nothing.

I do not want to replace the cables if I don't have to. Is there anything else I can check?

I've already played with the adjustment bolt by the hand lever.

It has stuck a couple of times in the last few weeks for me too.

I do not even use it now.

But I was thinking maybe some wd40 or such might help them.

I've tried pulling the brake a million times and nothing changes. What's weird is this problem went away for a few days and came back again and seem like it's here to stay now.

Make sure the cables are even hooked onto the rear calipers... then have someone pull the lever as you watch the other end of the cables that'll tell you if you have a cable problem or caliper problem
