The handbrake adjustment is at the handbrake. Pull off the rubber boot around the hand brake. (it pulls open at the botto of the handle and slips off over it). Next locate the 10mm bolt under the rear cup holder (there may be a little felt in there covering it). Remove the bolt.

Lift the console at the rear, it should pop loose at the front and lift up. You should have clear access to the adjustment bolt. Loosen the 10mm locking nut and this should allow you to adjust the cable.

Turn the adjustment clockwise to tighten the cable and once adjusted, re-tighten the locking nut. Reverse the whole process to put the console etc back together.

SOURCE: hello , where is the handbrake adjuster on volvo v40 - 53reg

V40 cable ajuster is situated under the rear part of center console. Remove rear tray, undo the two posi screws, remove the cup holder rubber base cover to expose one more posi screw-undo.
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.

SOURCE: How do adjust my HandBrake , I have a BMW 316i

If you remove the rear wheels, through the bolt holes in the disc you should find a toothed wheel which needs to be turned with a screwdriver until the disc cannot be turned, then back off 6 teeth to prevent over adjustment and binding. (you can adjust the cables inside but this only takes up the slack and doesnt adjust the handbrake correctly) once they have been adjusted check the balance by driving gently forward and backwards whilst applying the handbarke and watching which side of the car reacts first then adjust the other side via the cable inside the car

Rear handbrake shoes. I Tighten them up using adjuster and slacken it back off a click or two. When I rotate it with my hand it only goes forward half a turn before it locks on me. Rotates others way no...


Hi Brian
First make sure that you slacken the cable adjusting nut fully, then adjust the rear handbrake shoes by tighten up fully then you slacken off 4 or 5 clicks, after you do both sides you have to adjust the cable as needed.
Good luck

Hand brake ajustment on a 1994 toyota carina


remove the rear drums then inspect and manually adjust the shoes auto adjuster ,clean the lip off on the outside of the drum so the shoes just about allow the drum on ,this is the correct way not screw the cable setting up to max ,do it my way and the brake pedal will be hard as you have reduced the reserve travel and the handbrake will have two /three clicks ,when you do this make sure the rear brake shoes which have trhe handbrake lever ,make sure this lever is right back if not slacken the handbrake cable to allow the cable to come back in case some weekend mechanic or a dealer fitter has tightened the cable only ,the former as they dont know and the later because their on bonus payment

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.


Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.

Handbrake on my HJ75 is pathetic. Is there an aftermarket solution?.


Hi,

This is quite an easy fix on these models.

The handbrake bellcrank on the back of the backing plate just needs to be adjusted.

You should only have 9 - 12 clicks on the hand brake lever when you pull it up. If you got alot more then you need to adjust it.

There currently is no aftermarket options for this sort of design, you can get better aftermarket brake shoes but thats not going to improve your handbrake.

If you still have problems after adjusting then you may need to get your rear brake hub face machined so that the brake shoe can have more surface area to grip onto.

Hope this helps

Thanks
