There will be a plastic cover to pry off. You will see the screws underneath, raise handbrake and than pull off.

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.

Adjusting the park brake


back of the handbrake lever where the rear ashtray is remove the screws that hold the centre consol down ,or behind the ashtray is a cover that you pull out exposing the cable adjuster ,best is too look at the rear brakes because if their drum brakes then the auto adjusters need adjusting manualy ,or some models have the handbrake inside the rear disk on brake shoes and they will need manually adjusting

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

Handbrake adjustment, landrover discovery, 98


There is adjustment at the transmission brake backplate, use a 17 mm spanner to adjust the shoes to drum clearance. The cable adjustment is done by undoing and either removing or lifting up , the centre console, then you will see a plastic round adjuster and c clip , adjust as necessary.
Hope this helps

Handbrake will not click into place, but the cord isnt broken. How do i remove the centre console to have a look at it?


I had to take my Renault into a garage with this problem of the handbrake not engaging. It holds after about 10 attempts just now. I am waiting for the garage to get the Renault part needed and it costs £147 from Renault, with labour costs and VAT it will cost about £240 to repair!

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 to adjust the handbrake on a 2002 Daewoo Nubira


i think you'll have to look at the piece of felt under the casette holder lid , lift the felt up using a very fine flat ended screw driver and there should be a couple of bolts under there ! if yes , then take the lid off also , another two philips head screws . if its the same as the centre console of the 1998 model !! now , having removed the bolts , gently lift the rear end of the centre console , with a torch you should be able to see the adjuster . Make sure the hand brake is down , so put bricks under one or both of the front wheels and leave it in gear , also , do this on a flat surface !!!!
Adfter you've done the adjustment , before putting everything back together , put the console into normal position and try putting handbrake on and off , it should feel firm to lock the back brake  ! then if all is okay , put the screws back in reverse order good luck
