SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: how do i find the ajustment nut for handbrake onhyundai accen

The hand brake on this model can be adjusted from inside the car. Where the handbrake is in the center console, the plastic around it can be taken off. There is a screw on each side that needs to come out, and then from there just pull up, and twist it around and up from the parking brake. Set it aside along with the screws. On the inside you will see what looks like a long gold colored screw, t his is for the tension adjustment. Part of it should have a hex head that you can fit a wrench on. My 03 Hyundai uses a 12mm wrench. Keep turning it towards the passenger side occasionally pulling up on the hand brake to test the tension. Once the tension feels tight but not too tight that's it and you are done. You should be able to pull up on the hand brake about 3-4 clicks and that would be appropriate tension...

Trace the break cable and adjust the slack in the line. Be careful doing so, it's an emergency break for a reason.

Where will i find a press down button for the handle of my handbrake a vauxhall mokka

If you are referencing the botton in the end of the handel, then I would start with a dealer. However they may only have it available as part of an entire handel assembly. Then there is the option of salvage yards and lastly Ebay.

How do I tighten the handbrake on my Vauxhall meriva as it has stretched?

Hi,normaly if you go under the car at the back you will see the brake cable going from one wheel to the other it should have a adjusting nut and bolt which you tighten.
first pull the emergency brake on so when you pull it up it clicks free times,then go under the car and adjust untill the wheels lock,then release the emergency brake to make shore the wheels go round ok,if so job done,if not just release the juster a bit more untill its right.
there is also a item on the market that you put on the cable to take up the slack,its also valid for passing mot as well,its like a you bolt with a ajuster on it,if you asked at a spares shop they should have one,and with this job its a good idear to get some penertrating fluid as these ajusters are normaly rusted and seased up.
all the best.
