Making parking brake adjustments in your Toyota Highlander are somewhat challenging for a beginner because the adjustment requires you to get underneath the Toyota Highlander. Save money and adjust the parking brake yourself at home instead of taking your truck to the mechanic. You do not need to raise the Highlander on a lift; a simple pair of pliers is all you need.

Make Parking Brake Adjustments
Test the parking brake to see how much you need to adjust the cables. The parking brake should click five to seven times when your foot depresses the pedal to the floor of the Highlander.
Release the parking brake pedal and note the number of clicks your Highlander needs adjusted.
