Checking the Parking Brake

Check the stroke of the parking brake by counting the number of clicks heard

Check the stroke of the parking brake by counting the number of clicks heard while fully applying it from the released position. Also, the parking brake alone should securely hold the vehicle on a fairly steep grade. If the number of clicks is more or less than specified, have the parking brake adjusted by an authorized Kia dealer or another competent repair center.

Stroke:

5~9 clicks at a force of 44 lbs (196N).
