Wow.. I must edit this to thank swiftjustice
because he posted his answer before I posted this...
"Does the car have a foot powered emergency brake
on the drivers side"
-Yes, foot brake, but not sure power or not (how to tell?).
"You put your foot on the emergency brake and it goes to the floor?"
-Yes, actually I parked my car and hit the brake with foot. The pedal goes down 6 inch distance to the floor and stop, it brakes the car well at this point.
"Does this car have 4 wheel disk brakes
, if so the rear rotors also include a drum having brake shoes for the emergency brake. The shoes could need replacement or the cables running to them need adjustment."
-Yes, 4 whell disc brakes.
Now, please show in general how to see the parking brake shoes inside the rear disc. How to adjust the cable or how to replace it.. I installed the disc/drum brakes many times by myself on my cars, so I have no problem to take it aparts. But this is the first time on this Avalon. I want to learn before trying...
Thank you for your help.
