Slacken cable right off ,then remove the rear brake drums and using a small angle grinder clean the lip that forms on the drum as this will stop you from adjusting the brakes right up when you push the drum back on.next check condition of wheel cylinders and ensure their is no leaks and cylinders move when pushed in and not seized.then using a conventional oil can and not that silly spray junk lubricate the pivots and anything that looks like it should move.Then adjust the automatic adjuster till the brake shoes are just touching the drum when you offer it back up and spin it.Next adjust handbrake cable till you have 3 clicks on it .job done

First make sure the rear breaks are ajusted or replaced when worn out drum to be skeemed aswell.

Then ajust cable insite car remove hand brake cover and you will see a ajustable screw or nut. Rememeber to put the handbrake on four clicks and dont tighten screw or nut to much the brakes will lock

Ajusting hanbrake ford au111 2002 falcon


Hi Shannon, There is an ajustment nut at the base of the hand brake it's self, you pull the cover strait off the end of the handle and it is a 10mm nut on a treaded piece of metal rod/cable. If it's as tight as it can get you may need new brake boots for you handbrake. Just checked ebay and they are $66 plus postage for a set :)

Remember righty tighty lefty loosie :p
hope this helps :)

Parking brake down to floor but does not hold,otherwise brakes work perfectly.how do you adjust parking brake. mechanic says you have to take brake off.


hes right too! if they dont fit an ajuster then the drums need to have self adjusters in them and they never work very well on an older car or even on a new one,,,,,wip off the drums and wind up the adjusters by hand,,,,also if your the type of person who pull on the parking brake like a ,,,griller on steroids,,,,
you only stretch the cable it dont put the brake on any harder

Trying to correct a problem with the steering, it is pulling right and the steering wheel is shaking from left to right and it is more noticeable when in low gear. Wheels have been aligned and balanced...


if pulls right when braking,then l/h brake is faulty, the ajustments on the steering arms not even so steering bob/rack is self centering so r/h ajustment is too tinht,,wheels shaking=wheel bent,out of balance,bearings in hub worn so wheel wobbles

Got my tires rotated and the shop informed me that my brakes had gone bad and needed replacing. Rather than spending 900 dollars I didn't have, i opted to do the work myself. Brakes work now, but...


that sounds just like a leaky none return velve in the master cylinder or very low on brake fluid it may even have got air in the system also if you removed the rear drums and never ajusted up the brake shoes this could give you this problem check the rear brums first the brake shoes should just be tuching the drums if there not pull off the drums and wind up the ajusters then refit the drum till the drake shoes are only just clearing the drum i know they have self ajusting shoes but half the time they just dont work very well so ajust it by hand,, the front brake are disk's and they are self ajusting,,,
after doing this work leave the car for a minue or so and stamp on the brake to pump them out if you then need to pump the brakes up again that shoes its just ajusted the rear drums,,,the brake pedel should only ever need to be prest once never pumped up,, if this dont help you out and sort out the problem then and only then replace the master cylinder as there normaly very strong and dont brake down often and they often leak brake fluid first,,,my bet is its the rear shoes needing ajusting up

Replace rear brakes adjust handbrake


The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.
