    Following on from the 'brake bleeding' post, how is the handbrake adjusted, after changing one rear caliper, discs and pads.

    The handbrake self adjusts but you can reset it in case u took up some of the play with the handbrake and not the foot pedal.

    Wind in both calipers and pump the brake pedal after you fit new pads etc.

    How do you wind the cable up a bit so the handbrake doesn't come up as much.

    Don't think you can. Well I've not seen it. Thought it was an automatic adjuster?

    You can i did this on mine (the stupid garage used the handbrake rather than pumping pedal first) and got two clicks less. Under the cubbyhole/ arm rest there is a spring what you have todo is press the sliver thing down and press in the spring at the same time (from what i can remember i found out how to do it on here)) and that resets the adjuster pump pedal a few times then pull and release the handbrake a few thime to set. if its still high then i would think a new cable will be needed.
