Handbrake not working

few different ideas. check the parking brake cable, remove center console and check to see how tight the cable is. tightening it is pretty easy, and it should be very tight. If that is tight then check brakes.

The handbrake is stuck on how do i fix it

You may have to pull up really hard to be able to release it, if it was applied really hard, if not and it's an automatic transmission you may have to get someone to cut the cable going to the rear brakes to release them. NOT THE METAL LINES

I have been having a clunking sound from my peugeot 206 for a week or so now and this morning it did it again then when i went to put the handbrake back on its really high what has happened the handbrake...

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.

Chrysler voyager drum brakes excess hand brake travel no adjuster how can a take up slack

i had the same problem with my crysler voyager 1997,a friend of mine who is a mechanic found the problem,it is a self adjuster on the handbrake itself,once drums are adjusted up you need to go to your hanbrake area and you will find a white plastic clip on the bottom of the lever ,once removed you pull up your handbrake a few times and it self adjusts,then put the plastic clip back on,this soved my problem,by doing this my handbrake went from about 13 clicks on max to hold . to about 6 clicks and held perfectly
