    My 96 Tbird doesnt have a handbrake. All it has is a foot actuated Parking Brake located under the dash on the left hand side, but mine is an automatic trans.

Ajusting hanbrake ford au111 2002 falcon

Hi Shannon, There is an ajustment nut at the base of the hand brake it's self, you pull the cover strait off the end of the handle and it is a 10mm nut on a treaded piece of metal rod/cable. If it's as tight as it can get you may need new brake boots for you handbrake. Just checked ebay and they are $66 plus postage for a set :)

Remember righty tighty lefty loosie :p
hope this helps :)

Parking brake down to floor but does not hold,otherwise brakes work do you adjust parking brake. mechanic says you have to take brake off.

hes right too! if they dont fit an ajuster then the drums need to have self adjusters in them and they never work very well on an older car or even on a new one,,,,,wip off the drums and wind up the adjusters by hand,,,,also if your the type of person who pull on the parking brake like a ,,,griller on steroids,,,,
you only stretch the cable it dont put the brake on any harder

Parking brake light is on all the time??? i wonder why????

Could be low fluid in the brake fluid bottle, or the wires or sensor are faulty to the brake fluid, or front brake pads are low, or hand brake switch inside the car under the hand brake is faulty or out of alignment.

Hope this helps

I have a 1985 jaguar xj6 low, second and drive all work fine, when I put it in reverse you can hear the motor rpms change but car will not move in reverse. Also the speedometer works sometime and tach not...

It could be the reverse brake band. If you get a Haynes manual for this model, it will tell you where and how to adjust the bands.
Hope this helps

Replace rear brakes adjust handbrake

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.
