Sounds like its not cable, but in the hand brake itself. if the release is broke, pulling up on the cable is not going to hold the car and will give way. really sounds like the locking mechanism on the hand brake is broke.

Honda Jazz 2007 1.4 rear pads and discs replaced no hold on handbrake still. Adjusted handbrake but still nothing could this mean I need new calibers? Thanks for the previous answers but there is no


Callipers are what hold the pads and the cylinders on the car. They have nothing to do with your problem. However they are attached by 2 bolts that are fixed to the axle housing mount. These bolts will rust up and not allow the callipers to move and centralize on the disc rotor. If you look at the callipers you will see 2 bolts that have what looks like a rubber seal under the head These are the bolts . Although you have adjusted the hand brake, if you have shoes inside the hub of the disc rotor they will have to be adjusted first and not just the lever.

How to adjust handbrake in honda civic coupe 2005


Do you mena the height of the handbrake?

If you take off the centre console where the handbrake is housed in you will see at the base of the handbrake 2 screws which have some cable running off them through to the rear of the car.

Tighten the screws (sorry i can't remember which direction) and test the hand brake as you go until you have the preferred height.

If you are talking about how to actually make the hand brake grip better, that is a rear brake issue and could be a whole heaps of things (brake booster, master cylinder, brake pads, calipers) etc - if you haven't noticed any issues wiht your brakes though it could be the cable length itself. Tightening it up and if you want any more info let me know integra79@gmail.com

Honda civic 2007 handbrake failure


Hopefully you still have the repair invoice from the dealer. Use this to determine which parts were repaired or replaced then go to USA.gov and select product recalls. You can file a complaint there. You should also notify the dealer that the problem was not repaired and you'll legal action if necessary.

Handbrake adjustment


look under car where cable from lever attaches to split plate to operate cables for each wheel. there is a spring loaded rod there that can be adjusted with 2 wrenches. one to hold the rod and the other to move adjustment nut assembly. chris
