    Default Adjusting the handbrake cable?

    Can I adjust the handbrake cable on an 04 Vectra C?
    If so can someone post a quick how to?

    Reason I ask, is, I live on a main road - parked the car in a side street after filling up with gas, about 30 mins later a guy knocked on the door -
    my car had rolled into the MIDDLE OF THE ROAD!!!

    HELP?!

    take it back in mate, VX will check the rear calipers operation.. if you're lucky winding the pistons back in and then letting the adjusters work again may be enough to reset it.. if you're unlucky it'll be one or more new calipers..

    nope... it's self adjusting at the caliper...if the cable has stretched then it'll need changing..

    The rear hub setup is nothing like a vec B.. the rear caliper is now quite a complex bit of kit compared to the B's..

    Now it couldnt be simple could it, I was wondering that myself now the other day, car started to slip a bit, but mind you it was a pretty savage hill - if I was parking on it it would be in gear for sure.
