Scenic 54 plate. What causes a loud screeching noise when handbrake applied and parking brake fault on dash?


noise when applying the park brake indicates metal to metal on the brake pads ( no brake linings )
Check out that area first before spending money on anything else
To get an exact diagnosis of the problem and to get a quote for the repairs, find an accredited brake specialist shop ( preferably one with Renault experience) and make an informed decision from that

Red Handbrake warning saying Apply handbrake and not starting


I familiar with this setup, but the car should start with the parking brake on. I could see it warning you if you try to move it with brake set, or maybe even shutting off engine then, but I would never think it would prevent engine from starting. Is this a stick shift or automatic. Make sure transmission is in neutral or park, clutch depressed.

How do I adjust the handbrake on 2003 Kia Carnival


I have not checked a kia carnival but worked on most kia cars. There are two hand brake adjustments. One is at the hand brake lever. open up the hand brake cover and look for the nut adjuster where the end of the hand brake cable is attached to. Tighten up that nut until you find a comfortable hand brake position and the brakes locks.

the other adjustment is found at the rear brake drums. you have to remove the tires and tighten the adjusting nut behind the brake plates. there is a small hole, usually covered with a rubberized plug. remove that plug and adjust the brake with a flat screwdriver.

Wheel smokes,brake dragging


Make sure your handbrake cable is adjusted properly. Adjust the rear brake shoes down to where the wheels turn freely with the linings only just touching the drums. Be sure to pump the pedal a few times after adjusting, then try again.
The front wheels (pads and calipers) will just about never bind, so concentrate on the rear wheels. If you do suspect the front wheels, release the bleeder valve for just a second and then try again.

I have a F150 p/u 2000 for 10yrs. Each year I change the brake pads. But the rear pads still looks like new. The front pads are worn down. What can be causing the problem?


normally, you replace the rear brake pads every other change in the front brake pads. for your case, it seems that the front brakes are the only ones working.

bleed your brakes to check if rear brakes are still working. after bleeding, check your brake master if it puts pressure equally to the 4 brakes.
