Question about 2000 Ford Focus
Pulled on the handbrake and when it reached normal height full on it banged now its not fully loose but almost no tension and goes nearly vertical does not hold car at all .I think its the cable but on reading up on this it seems its not that simple. is there any way to tell for sure which part has failled without spending a fortune on excess parts.
Lf you follow the route of the cables under the car then pull on the left and right outer cables one or the other should come apart failing that it will probably be a break in the handbrake lever....Hope this help`s..

SOURCE: ford bantam handbrake adjustment
remove the back brake drums ,slacken handbrake cable then run a mini grinder around the lip on the edge of the drum .Then adjust the auto adjusters manully so when the drum is push on it just goes on ,tap with a hammer all around the drum to level the shoes and if need be adjust up a bit more ,then when finished re-adjust the cable so you have three notches on handbrake lever
