How to adjust parking brake


With old style handbrake, you can remove some screws around the handbrake covering. The screws are sometimes well hidden so you have to look around.
When you get the covering off, there are two adjusting nuts at the rear of the handbrake. Turn the nuts until you can get "5 clicks" on the handbrake to set the brakes.
Some jack up the car while doing this so they can rotate the wheels by hand to feel when the brakes touch the pads.
Hope this helps

How do I adjust the handbrake on 2003 Kia Carnival


I have not checked a kia carnival but worked on most kia cars. There are two hand brake adjustments. One is at the hand brake lever. open up the hand brake cover and look for the nut adjuster where the end of the hand brake cable is attached to. Tighten up that nut until you find a comfortable hand brake position and the brakes locks.

the other adjustment is found at the rear brake drums. you have to remove the tires and tighten the adjusting nut behind the brake plates. there is a small hole, usually covered with a rubberized plug. remove that plug and adjust the brake with a flat screwdriver.

Hand brake adjustment on KIA Carnival


The Kia Carnival has drum brakes on the rear and they are self adjusting. They can however be adjusted by working the handbrake lever up and down a few times, if it has not been previously adjusted by using the cable adjustment, then this will probably not work, and it is something I come across quite a lot. if all this fails, then it is a matter of taking the wheels off and removing the drum. firstly check the position of the handbrake actuating lever (its connected to the cable) with the handbrake off (wheels chocked of course) the lever should be as far back as possible to the brake shoe, if it isn't check that you have a little bit of slack on the cable and it is not seized if not adjust the cable off a little so the levers return fully. if you look you will see the self adjuster you can turn the notched wheel a few clicks and then put the drum back on. make sure it is not binding when you turn it (a slight rub is ok) tap the drum (top, bottom, left, right) to centre the shoes (this is important because it will give false adjustment if you don't). once you have done this to both sides, double check both wheels are still running free. replace wheels a try handbrake, it should be ok now. Check how many clicks you need to pull the lever to apply brake and adjust the cable just enough to remove any slack in it, NO MORE. Warning! DO NOT HIT THE DRUM HARD AS IT WILL CAUSE FRACTURES. I hope that has been of some help to you.

How do I adjust the handbrake on a Carnival KIA


my favourite ?? i think not but i do have problems with this vehicle as the cable is pulling two different length cables at a funny angle on the LHD models anyway as for the RHd iam not sure of the layout but i would imagine its similar ,fow firstly make sure the cable adjuster under the car where the drivers seat is is slackened off and make sure you oil the adjuster first and leave a while if your in the northern climes as the rain and salt will corrode it ,then slacken the cable off then remove the rear drums one at a time will suffice and make sure that lip on the outer edge is rubbed down i use a small angle grinder for this as it takes forever and day with a emery paper ,then after making sure the wheel cylinders are free by pushing in with a screwdriver ,i then adjust the auto adjuster three clicks at a time till the drum just slides on and a faint rubbing sound can be heard ,then a tap around the drum with the hammer and if the noise stops i remove the drum and give it one click on the autoadjuster at a time till its rubbing with a very slight resistance ,after both drums are done i then adjust the adjuster till three clicks on the footpedal handbrake .job sorted ,slap a bit of copperslip grease over the threads on the adjuster so they do not corrode up again .But i do seem to get unevan braking on the roller brake tester at the inspection station but providing its under 20% difference then thats ok but these vehicles do suffer from unevan handbraking no matter how good you adjust the shoes up even with new handbrake cables as one is longer than the other and goes off at a right angle

Smell of burning rubber on offside rear wheel. Intermittent. Kia Ceed 113bhp 1.6


It could be the handbrake, and easy to check. Next time you smell it, feel the nearside brake caliper or drum, then carefully touch the offside one. You will notice the difference in heat. Under normal use, they get warm, but if it is burning, it will too hot to touch.

Also look under the car for anything near or touching the exhaust. Check mud flaps if you have them that they are not touching the tyre when you are in motion.

I think you are on the right track with the hand brake/ parking brake. A vehicle can still drive if its slightly engaged and you would notice some sort of burning smell from the area. Try engaging the brake and disengaging the brake a few times and see if it releases completely. There may be an issue with the line causing it to "stick" here and there. Good luck! Cars are complicated but troubleshooting the small things before spending hundreds in labour is always wise!
