I think you'll have to look at the piece of felt under the casette holder lid , lift the felt up using a very fine flat ended screw driver and there should be a couple of bolts under there ! if yes , then take the lid off also , another two philips head screws . if its the same as the centre console of the 1998 model !! now , having removed the bolts , gently lift the rear end of the centre console , with a torch you should be able to see the adjuster . Make sure the hand brake is down , so put bricks under one or both of the front wheels and leave it in gear , also , do this on a flat surface !!!!
Adfter you've done the adjustment , before putting everything back together , put the console into normal position and try putting handbrake on and off , it should feel firm to lock the back brake  ! then if all is okay , put the screws back in reverse order good luck

Adjusting hand brake


there is a cable adjuster under the center console if its got a rear ashtray just pull that out and look there.but you should remove the rear brake drums and check the shoes. and the handbrake fulcrum levers, they can sieze up. also make sure the levers return to the stops with handbrake off and the auto adjusters are working ok before adjusting the handbrake cable! it helps brake performance if you give the auto adjusters a bit of a tweak before putting the drums back on. manually adjust 3-4 clicks or until the drum goes back without binding.

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.


Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.

Why does my jaguar xk8 stiil roll when in park


If you're trying to hold it on the auto transmission alone, then the transmission brake bands need adjusting or even replacing. If it's rolling when the handbrake (parking brake) is applied, then the handbrake needs adjusting or needs new pads.

The car should never be parked and held on the transmission alone; the handbrake should always be the primary means of holding the car from moving.

Both of these jobs are routine maintenance tasks but are not ones for an inexperienced mechanic.

I just got my handbrake adjusted in my hyundai excel. whenever i pull up on a slope it still rolls back with the handbrake on


If the hill is steep or is covered with dirt or sand then you may not have a problem. Did you park there before and it held? Do you use the hand-brake all the time? Have there been times that you forgot to release the parking brake? When the shoes were adjusted were the shoes inspected before the adjustment? The tech. should have looked for problems.

The handbrake adjustment is at the handbrake. Pull off the rubber boot around the hand brake. (it pulls open at the botto of the handle and slips off over it). Next locate the 10mm bolt under the rear cup holder (there may be a little felt in there covering it). Remove the bolt.

Lift the console at the rear, it should pop loose at the front and lift up. You should have clear access to the adjustment bolt. Loosen the 10mm locking nut and this should allow you to adjust the cable.

Turn the adjustment clockwise to tighten the cable and once adjusted, re-tighten the locking nut. Reverse the whole process to put the console etc back together.
