Any way to adjust the parking brake on a 05 Ranger XP

Won't hold on the slightest hill anymore. I can't find any adjustment at the brake itself or at the parking brake petal.

Looks like about 1/2 left on the parking brake pads ( I bought new ones to compare).

860 hours on the machine.

Thanks a ton!

I had the same issue with my old ranger. After new pads it didn't help. The dealer simply told me the pads were worn out. Obviously not true. I think that I had to shim the cam assembly that applies the brake and possibly adjust the spacer so the pads would move closer together. It has been a few years since I did that and do not remember exactly. But if you look close at the way it applies it should be fairly straight forward .
