The most common cause is a seized up brake cable to that side. The other cause is caliper binding up. Youll Ned to be under the car watching the brake cable while someone is pulling the brake handle to figure it out.

I realized the driver's side cable is definitely looser than the other side. This even makes the pin which connects both cables tilt to right when I pull the lever.

I have the same problem. Just had the car inspected, and the very next day it felt like the e brake cable broke. When checking it, it was definitely the driver's side. I took the drum off, and it seems the e brake cable was not properly attached. The problem is, I don't know where it should be attached. Can anyone help? I would need a diagram or picture of how the rear drum brake assembly is supposed to look. I am trying to attach a pic, but I can't from my pad.
Thanks in advance!

I know these posts from a while back, but I cam across this today. Looking at the diagram on the last page that displayed the adjustment nut represented by "A," bot cables seem to connect to the metal piece shaping a fork or a "Y" figure. Is that metal piece where the three cables join supposed to be perpendicular to the cables? Mine is very angled such that the driver side dips significantly? I hope that made sense

ebrake

Does anybody know if the ebrake switch wire is supposed to be hot or not? My brake light is on and I thought that it may be the ebrake switch, but I put a test light on the wire and it has no power with key off or on.(2003 Honda accord coupe 4cyl.

I have the exact same problem as Boing. When I went to check the calipers, I noticed one of the parking brake actuating arms was against the stop. Not sure if something is broken, or if it needs adjusting . Won’t be able to check it for a week or so.

Honda provides an access panel at the back of the console that may be removed to adjust the brake.

1) Remove the two exposed screws at the rear of the center console, one on each side of the console, that are down and close to the floor. They are the only exposed screws you will see at the back of the console.

2) Using your fingers, gently pry evenly on both sides of the rear center console cover, starting from the bottom up. there are several alignment tabs up the sides, and two clips at the top, near where the center console lid attaches to the console.

3) Once the panel pops free, you will be able to see the adjuster underneath the center console bin, by looking up under the console. You may wish to use a light to make it more visible. Using a 12MM socket, and an extension, you can adjust the parking brake without removing the center console.

4) When finished, installation of the access panel is the reverse of removal.[/url]

It would be represented by part #11 or #12 respectively.
I'll add one note to these instructions that I learned yesterday (after removing the entire center console! Doh!). It is VERY difficult to see the adjusting nut underneath the center storage compartment, but there's a very easy way to do so.

Open the center storage compartment and remove the liner at the bottom. Remove the screw holding the accessory socket and lift it up and to the side. There's a hole underneath through which you can see the adjusting nut. Use a 12mm socket on an extension inserted through the removed access panel of the compartment to make the required adjustment.
