You'll have to jack the car up and take the wheel off, then take the assembly apart and push the pistons in the calipers back in then put it all back together and pump the brakes until they go either hard or you'll need to bleed them again to release any air from the system

How do i replace my hand brake cable on my ford falcon XH ute


wait a bit ....is it rear disc or rear drums on that ute

will assume its under dash hand brake pull lever tyoe

the disc setup may have single cables for each rear
rear disk brake cable is approx $ 150

if your XH it is close to the XE and XF set up drums
a complete one line loop cable outer and inner
with plastic grommets along the back chassis rail ( they break )
so the one inner cable works both rear handbrake shoes


hand brake cable is a shorty

undo the adjustment thread
just below the hand brake cable point up somewhere above the gearbox
(drums )
after new cable fitted
drums are adjusted with the old school way with the handbrake adjuster tool
handbrake cable adjusted

then the handbrake handle when pulled out to hold needs14 plus clicks
comes out a long way for some weird reason
on drums
if cable adjustment is done wrong onrear drums the handbrake cable will come loose in the drum as you drive along

The disc is not held on with the axle hub nut, you need to remove the brake calipar & carrier , then the 6mm Allen screw from the disc, the disc may be seized on the hub or sticking on the handbrake shoes you may have to hot the disc centre with a hammer to loosen it

Handbrake adjustment bmw e46 How do I adjust the handbrake on a bmw 318i 1999


you can't. there's those star nuts that are supposed to do it, but they don't work. You can access the star legs through the access hole on the drum. spin them till the drum stops. Test the hand brake and you'll find it still doesn't stop the car while moving. BMW engineering.....brilliant.

You need to replace your rear brake pad linners, you also need rear shocks and shock mounts, If you still hear that nose in the rear then you may need rear wheel bearings.
