The adjustment for the parking brake is at the rear brakes. The R51 uses a "hat style" system where the inside hub of the rear brake rotor is also the drum for the rear parking brake shoes, which use a star adjuster like a rear drum brake setup typically does. There's an access window in the hub of the rear brake rotor so you can adjust it.

But what is the deal with the adjustment nut on the pedal? I engage it slightly, loosen the night, disengage the pedal, then tighten it back down?

Here's what the ALLDATA states in regards to parking brake adjustment:







:

2005 Nissan-Datsun Truck Pathfinder 4WD V6-4.0L (VQ40)

Vehicle Level Brakes and Traction Control Parking Brake System Parking Brake Control Adjustments Adjustments ADJUSTMENT

  1. Remove lower instrument panel LH. Refer to "LOWER INSTRUMENT PANEL LH".
  2. Partially engage parking brake pedal to access adjusting nut.





  1. Insert a deep socket wrench to rotate adjusting nut and loosen cable until tension is sufficiently released. Then, disengage the parking brake pedal.
  2. Remove the wheel and tire using power tool.





  1. Remove the rotor and measure inner diameter at widest point using tool. Tool number: - (J-21177-A)
  2. Transfer measurement less 0.6 mm to the parking brake shoes and adjust accordingly.
  3. Using wheel nuts, secure the disc to the hub to prevent it from tilting.
  4. Rotate disc rotor to make sure there is no drag.
  5. Adjust cable as follows:
    1. Operate pedal 10 or more times with a force of 490 N (50 kg, 110 lbs.).
    2. Rotate adjusting nut with deep socket to adjust pedal stroke to specification. Pedal stroke: 4 - 5 notches [under force of 196 N (20.0 kg, 44.1 lbs.)]
    3. With parking brake pedal completely disengaged, make sure there is no drag on the parking brake.
