Risk type:  Injuries
 
On vehicles with a rear drum brake, the operational wear of the brake lining and use-related settlement of the drum brake may result in a loss of pre-tension on the parking brake cables and thus on the parking brake lever adjustment nut.
As a consequence, the setting position for the adjustment nut could change when the parking brake is applied, thus extending the range of parking brake lever travel. This could result in the vehicle not being properly secured by the parking brake.
