SOURCE: handbrake adjustment?

you havent set the rear brakes up properly,slacken off handbrake cable first,remove the rear shoe any side first or both together ,firstly with a small angle grinder flaten the lip thats built up around the edge of the drum ,taking care not to catch the shiney facing.then look at at the handbrake pulling arm and make sure it right the way back onto the shoe .Next the hard part and this is adjusting the the automatic adjuster till as you put drum on their is a slight resistance sliding over shoes but the drum turns with a slight resistance and a bit of noise where the shoes are just catching,Do both side sides and adjust handbrake till you have 3 notches (clicks) .check wheels still turn ok with a slight noise of the shoes dragging .Now footbrake should be firmer and this car will lock back wheels up at 30mph ,and bounce out the brake tester at the annual mechanical inspection

hi fro uk when you reassembled brake shoes? did you notice the tubular bar just below b/cylinder? it fits between the two shoes and has a toothed wheel on the treaded side(l/h) this is the auto adjuster ie as tooth wheel is rotated it extends the treaded side thus adjusting shoes to drum o/k? this is normally done auto by the small lever below but when fitting new shoes you must adjust this rod with tooth wheel and keep trying drum fitting when you can fit drum /just? fit and press brake to centralise shoes to drum then adjust again if req'd so that drum fits and rotates withh shoes not binding ?? do both sides THENyou willdrums fitted you will feel b/pedal is improved ie less travel on braking ? SO FIRST THING YOU HAVE TO DO IS SLACKEN OFF H/BRAKE CABLE ADJUSTMENT /SLACK ? then proceed with the above instruction afterwards if you do as above then you pull h/brake up one notch ? then adust slack from cable to light tension release h/brake and ensure wheels rotate freely when you apply h/brake it should hold on approx four//five notch ? hope this helps

SOURCE: 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.

I cannot get my brake drum to go on after installing new brake shoes I have tried using the adjuster but still nothing .


Ensure that you have the correct shoes for your vehicle. Some models may have two different sizes for that axles and if you get
the wrong size it may seem to fit, but won't go into the drum. If the shoes are correct, then you need to look at the drum itself. As the brake shoes rub the inside of the drum, they wear the drum down, leaving a raised ridge at the outside edge of the drum. This is what usually causes the issue of drums not going on. If adjusting the self adjuster all the way down to the smallest possible size won't work, then you need to take the drums to a mechanic and have them turned down to get rid of the ridge. It is usually recommended to turn the drums regardless, but they may be under minimum thickness and then would need to be replaced.

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.

Rear handbrake shoes. I Tighten them up using adjuster and slacken it back off a click or two. When I rotate it with my hand it only goes forward half a turn before it locks on me. Rotates others way no...


Hi Brian
First make sure that you slacken the cable adjusting nut fully, then adjust the rear handbrake shoes by tighten up fully then you slacken off 4 or 5 clicks, after you do both sides you have to adjust the cable as needed.
Good luck

Change handbrake cable


Hi Steve, The problem sounds as if it is the park brake adjustment or wear on the cable, (which may be binding inside the outer cover. This can be caused by a frayed inner cable and the ends catching). Try adjustment first and then only replacement of the cable. I have not carried out the job on a vehicle of this type, but replacement should be straightforward and logical. I'm fairly sure it will mean the removal of the center consul and disassembly of the brake activation levers on the parking brake shoes. Take some photographs or make some sketches before disassembling so you know how to re assemble. Regards John

How do i tighten the handbrake on my mitsubishi triton ute 1994 4wd


Hi,
Inorder to tighten it you need to check to see if the side that is not holding if the primary shoe that the handbrake cable pulls on. If not then you may need to adjust the adjuster at the shoe. It may be too far retractor so when the handbrake is engaged, the shoe is not coming out far enough to grab the inside of the drum. There is most likely nothing wrong with the cable. You just need to adjust the shoes. When you pull the wheel off and inspect the shoes, you will see if they are not worn. To use the adjuster, pull see it will be near the retainer spring, the spring will connect from the top and bottom of the shoes to retract them. On the top side, where the upper spring is will be the mechanical adjuster, where you can adjust out the shoes to make them grab accordingly when engaged.

Let us know if you were looking for something more else please accept the suggestion.
