The handbrake adjuster is under the centre console behind the lever. If its coming too high, check that the levers at the rear brake calipers are free and moving back to their stop position - they are prone to seizing up on older or little used cars. They can usually be freed off with a bit of lube and working the lever back and forwards. If that dosn't work, unfortunately you'll need new calipers. Do not adjust the handbrake cable unless the caliper levers are at their stops as this seriously reduces handbrake efficiency!

Now you can lift the section backond off the handbrake lever.
Look under the flexi plastic cover and find a gold nut which has a sprung retainer.
You can now effect adjustment via this nut book suggests six to seven notches from off to on for ideal adjustment.

I had my rear brake pads replaced and now have a rattle from the pads. Goes away if I pull up the handbrake one notch or step o n the brake pedal lightly.


There should be an adjustment to take up the slack in the parking brake cable. Although, If the brakes were properly serviced, there should not be any looseness in the brake pads. There are sprays and stick on pads that go on the back of brake pads to prevent rattles and squeaking. It would necessitate removing the brake caliper and brake pads. Personally, I would take it back to the shop that did the job and make them fix it. New pads should not rattle.
