Question about 2006 Peugeot 405
Hi! I have a 57 plate Peugeot Expert. The Handbrake cable broke and i replaced it as not under warranty. But i am having problems adjusting it correctly. The only adjustment is on the main cable that runs from the front (the one i replaced). There is some kind of a plastic adjuster with a lock/unlock sign on it. ive tried messing around with that, but the handbrake goes too tight or too loose. Does anyone know the correct procedure to adjust these new type of cables.
cant honestly say i have fitted one on this model,but is it full auto or is their an adjuster on the back of the clutch pedal.??? look first.Ford escort one is a bit of a pig but easy when you have the knack same as a golf easy when you know how .Now golf cable comes with two plastic ties that hold auto adjuster together and you dont relaese them till the cable is fitted.Can you describe the set up then i might be able to help some more.American web site so a lot of models not listed here and the lingo take a bit as well ,i mean whos ever heard of pigs tails or fire wires.Well what else can you expect when they are not taught the queens english and dont drink tea, just waste it by throwing it in the sea.

Hi, If you solve engine idle speed fault this will stop warning lights.
Oil preasure falls when engine not at norm rpm because oil pump is not turning fast enough.
Put car on diagnostics to check for any fault codes

Handbrake is normally mechanically connected to
the brakes by steel cable 1/8 inch thick. At the end of the cables are bolts with adjusting nuts to adjust the handbrakes. These nuts must be adjusted to have an equal tension on the brakes, otherwise, swerving may result. It is advised to have a mechanic todo this job.

peugeot and citreon cars do bite high generaly, it is hydaulic there is no adjustment. but it also depends on how high it is ?? does it slip if you slightly rest your foot on whilst driving?? they do have a problem with the bearings going through the cover as it is the same bearing as a HDI . but you woud notice this as a different problem. ie noise or vibration on pedal. call me for more info .. paul @ the clutch centre..01527 64440 07790438337

Problem will be with the rear brake shoes. Very likely one of 2 handbrake cables corroded and snapped.
Access to handbrake is under the plastic centre console - then under flap in carpet. Should be a ballance bar that should be equal 90 degrees. If it's not - replace both handbrake cables. DIY job -but you need a 2ft breaker bar for the Hub nuts.
