2015 Chevrolet Colorado: Parking Brake Pad Failure
August 3, 2015
The rubber on the parking brake pedal of our 2015 Chevrolet Colorado refuses to remain attached to the pedal. It first detached itself a few weeks ago before I left on my Wyoming road trip. It was harder than it should be to reattach the pad, but after a few minutes of wrestling, it stuck back in place. In addition to the rubber edges which wrap around the pedal platform, there's a small rubber post on the back of the pad which locates it by penetrating the hole that's visible on the pedal.
After a few uses it slipped off again. I reinstalled it. It came off a third time. It's been sitting on the floor since. This isn't something that justifies a dealer visit. A dab of epoxy will probably do the trick. But this is annoying.
