My Jeep is typically parked on my driveway (on a slight hill) and I leave it in 1st gear. This weekend, I left the Jeep out of gear, but with the parking brake engaged, and I got out to find the Jeep started rolling backwards. !!!
I put the Jeep in the garage and tightened the nut for the parking brake cables. With the parking brake engaged, I was able to move the Jeep backwards, but not forwards.
Why would the parking brake work if moving forward, but not backward?
