OK - I am confused stumped - or do not know, and feel silly


I Replaced the rear calliper with a rebuilt one, as the other one had an issue.

So while I am installing the new one, I test the park brake. cable move etc. not much just a little

I have calliper in position but brake fluid has not been bled yet. Should this not work?

The other side clamps tight but was bleed before and good.

Could the adjuster not be doing its job yet - because it has not been bled?

I have done a lot of brakes ???? but cable park brakes on disks ?. In the past they have just worked ???

Did you try adjusting the cable at the parking brake lever? IIRC the GT's have a left and right cable for the parking brake not one cable for both.

Thanks yes - but the right pulls a lot more because there is no tension on calliper that does not work

I will be bleeding brake tomorrow, need extra person - hope this helps
