Brake adjust question.

How do I adjust the e-brake? The brake on the vert I'm getting is very very stiff. Like as soon as you pick up on it, you get resistance.

Stfu. My fb has been dead since this time last year. lol.
In any case, what would cause a brake to drag? I was told the front driver's side is dragging, and causing premature wear and damage to the pads and rotors.

i'd flush the line and bleed it.

what i meant fixing the problem is easy. troubleshooting can be a pain sometimes.

could be the lines are decaying, the brake fluid can do that.

So if they're decaying, they could be causing trash in the line, AKA keeping pressure on that caliper?

Meh, its a cheap troubleshooting option. A couple bucks for some brake fluid isnt gonna kill me. It gives me a chance to replace the broken stopper in the brake pedal. Stupid plastic. I had to relieve brake pressure in my fastback to replace the stopper in that one too, because my hands are so fat.
