    Default Handbrake travel.

    Noticed when pulling handbrake up and down a few times with foot off the brake pedal sometimes it comes right up unless i pump the brake pedal then it adjusts to correct limit, is this normal?

    Weird checked it again and it's still the same, ok though as it holds fine brake pads are 50% worn so next year it will have a new set which should make the travel much less.

    You should always be applying the handbrake once the footbrake has been applied, and this keeps it adjusted
    Pulling the handbrake up it should not click more than 3 times, if it does then adjust the handbrake using the above method (as described in the handbook)
