Handbrake lever no tension


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..

I adjusted my handbrake cable on my 2001 ford focus SE but it still acts like there is no brake. The cable tigtened so i dont think its broken but what is the solution to getting the "e-brake" to work?


The adjustment that you touched on the cable shouldn't be touched. Well it really only gets adjusted when new cable/s are installed or if after the drum brakes are adjusted and there is still play in the cable, then it is adjusted.

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

The handbrake adjuster is under the centre console behind the lever. If its coming too high, check that the levers at the rear brake calipers are free and moving back to their stop position - they are prone to seizing up on older or little used cars. They can usually be freed off with a bit of lube and working the lever back and forwards. If that dosn't work, unfortunately you'll need new calipers. Do not adjust the handbrake cable unless the caliper levers are at their stops as this seriously reduces handbrake efficiency!

How do i adjust the hand break system on focus 1999


hi there, you will need to slacken of the cable adjuster just next to the handbrake lever under its gaiter, jack up the vheicle and remove the rear wheels, remove the rear brake drums, clean and adjust the brake shoes also remove any dust from the drum, if the shoes are worn out they will need replacing, with the drums removed check everything is working freely by getting someone to operate the handbrake lever as you visually inspect the shoes you should see them moving backwards and forwards, if not then strip down and free off, i would advice doing one side at a time so you always have a point of referance to work from. check the wheel cylinder is free and not leaking, if so replace. adjust the brake shoes and refit the drums, once this is done readjust your hanbrake cable so it comes up 3-4 clicks, if this seems a little dawnting your local garage should be able to do you this job for a small fee, hope this helps
