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

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.

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

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.
