    Default Handbrake adjuster?

    hello all
    can anybody tell me where the handbrake cable is adjusted from , is it at the wheel end or from inside the car near the handbrake lever?
    thanks

    I thought it was self adjusting at the lever end? Didn't think there was anything you could do to adjust it yourself?

    Don't think mine works then. It nearly touches the underside of the armrest, it comes up so far. (not that I care!)

    Its adjusted automatically via the toothed wheel on the rear brake setup. Which is why you have to wind the rear piston in rather than push it when renewing the pads .

    If its not holding car either the cable has stretched , or the automatic adjuster on the back brakes ( one each side) is faulty .


    Blimey this is an old post isnt it ?
