Re: Parking Brake Problems on Yukon XL
Our 01 tahoe and every newer body style truck i've driven is the same way. It has to do with the way the parking brake works on the rear disks. Its not part of the regular caliper my dealer says, they said its some wierd little thing inside the rotor or something. The service guy said that if you saw teh part you wouldn't ask it to do anything at all [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]
But yea, the whole idea of not having a good e-brake scares me, as does parking a trailer and having the weight be absorbed by the tranny and not the parking brake when parked.
I always park on a hill, so in my 94 and our 96 we had the e-brakes tightened way tight so you can't evne push it to the ground. For months mine didn't budge when i set the brake and parked it on a hill [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
