    Default Quick handbrake question

    Leaving home in a few mins to take the car in for some warranty work , just need a quick answer to my question

    The handbrake touches the armrest when it on fully, is this correct seems a bit high to me or is this normal ?

    Shall i get them to adjust it when at the dealers ?

    Thanks

    Is the arm rest pushed all the way back ? if it is, doesn't sound right. I think it's self adjusting but could be wrong.

    If I were you I would say to the garage "I have a problem with my handbrake" and watch their faces drop
