SOURCE: 92 honda accord camber adjustment

There is no no camber or caster adjustment on that model. If the car has been in an accident, chances are something is bent. My experience has been that the shock body and/or the steering knuckle is bent. Parts replacement is the only true fix. If the vehicle has had the ride height altered, ie. lowering springs, then there are adjustable upper control arms and ball joints available. These do generally only address the camber angle, not caster, which can also greatly affect handling. hope this helps.

Greetings larslabs,
My name is Dennis and I can assist you to finding your parking brake adjustment location.
1) the adjustment is located so that you have to remove your center console floor finish panel (this is the drink holder).
2) raise your parking brake lever and gently pry the plastic tabs from the center console.
3) Once you can see the park brake lever you will see a nut that is turned to adjust the lever so that it has 5 clicks when it is applied.
Glad to be of assistance and thank you for using FixYa. Please rate the solution because I can learn from your rating (and it keeps my rating up to date). Thank you, Dennis

on the back side of the wheel, there is a thin metal plate. on this plate, there is a rubber plug in a fairly small hole. remove the plug, and just inside, there should be the teeth of an adjuster start wheel visible. turn the star wheel until the drum is tight on the shoes. then, turn the start wheel back, approximately 10 teeth. test and repeat as necessary.

I have a 2000 4x4 expedition and the parking brake has its own set of shoes. They are located behind the rear disc rotor. You have to remove them to get to the shoes. You will have to release the parking brake to get the rear rotors off.

What size ratchet (wrench) do I need to adjust hand brake?


Normally you never have to adjust lever, all adjustment normally is done at brake shoe assy.
To adjust the cable, there is a 10 or 12 mm bolt in between the two cables. Clockwise tightens, counter-clockwise loosens.

Slack i e brake cable


If yours is like my early 95 with a lever on the center console there is a nut inside the console at the lever (probably a 10mm though might be a 12?) with an identical sized nut used as a jam nut against it. You should be able to see it with a flashlight right through the lever slot. So you need TWO 10mm wrenches to loosen it for adjustment then later tighten it. (if one ratchets all the better, it will speed up the slack tightening process) Loosen the jamb nut and tighten the lower nut until it takes six clicks of the ratchet before the e brake shoes engage the drum. That's what the book says is the proper tension. Then tighten your jam nut and you are good to go. Incidentally the other prescribed procedure at the rear wheels is for adjusting shoe to drum clearance and that is rarely needed as this is self adjusting when the vehicle is reversed. If you've just gradually lost parking brake use over time you just need to adjust the cable as I described.

Why is the emergency brake cable very loose


Probabily needs adjustment---
  1. Remove the screw covers, screws and parking brake trim cover.
  2. Turn the adjuster as needed to attain the proper adjustment.

Make sure the brakes do not drag when the parking brake lever is released.
  1. Reinstall the trim cover.
  2. Depress the pedal 2 notches.
  3. Tighten the adjusting nut at the pedal assembly until the rear brakes just begin to drag when rotated.
  4. Release the parking brake lever and check that the wheels do not drag when turned. The parking brake should engage in 3-5 notches when a force of 66 lbs. (294 Nm) is applied to the parking brake pedal.
  5. Lower the vehicle

My 2007 Honda accord hand brake lever is already high, that tells me it need to be adjust. I look under the car tried to find where to addjust it, it may be inside the rear wheel, can you help me?


Your brakes need to be adjusted first.Then worry about the handbrake.Don't get this wrong or it could be very bad.Get the brakes done,adjust the h/brake.
Cars can go but they MUST stop.Dont shortcut on the brakes.
H/brake adjustment is usually beside the h/brake lever
Hope this helps

How do I ajust my handbrake on my 2000w mazda 626?


The adjustment is found under the boot for the hand lever. You must remove or lift up the boot which surrounds the hand brake lever. Use a deep socket to tighten the nut on the end of the threaded shaft which is attached to the front end of the emergency brake cable. Make incremental adjustments to the cable. Test by using the hand lever after each adjustment to ensure that the emergency brake does not drag with the hand lever released.

1993 Honda Accord Emergency Brake + Rear seatbelt not retracting


The e-brake probably has an adjustment nut either under the brake when you have it pulled up or simply removing a small plastic plate at the back of the console as seen from the rear seat.
You wil probably need about a 12mm deep socked to adjust it. If the nut is bottomed out you will need to adjust if at the wheels.

As far as the seatbelt, you will need to access the reel assembly and determine if the belt is in a bind or the internal spring in the reel is broken. You should be able to tell what the problem is when you get to the reel.
