    Default Hand Brake

    Hi All I have the dreaded M O T coming up and my handbrake lever nearly goes into the rear of the car when applied. Can someone point me in the right direction on how to adjust it. Thanks in advance

    You can't adjust it - it's adjusted automatically each time you apply the handbrake. Check rear disks and pads for wear. Otherwise consider stretched handbrake cables and/or faulty auto-adjust mechanism (part of the handbrake lever assembly).

    trying sitting in neutral with foot on footbrake

    them with the handbrake button pushed in pump the hand brake up and down.

    this seems to tighten mine up, some thing to do with the automatic adjuster
