Hello David, there will be an adjuster but (depending on the age of the vehicle) it might be self adjusting or manual.

2002 Vectra. How do I replace rear handbrake cables?


first thing I would do is BUY a repair manual then read the section about hand brakes . before going out and buying parts . it might lead you to a mechanic . it is not an easy task , if you do not have a lift to get under the car standing up .

I changed the cables from the parking brake mazda protege 1999 and does not work properly


First make sure the brake shoe linings are ok and the shoe adjusters are free . slacken off the handbrake cable then adjust brake shoes ,then pull handbrake leaver on three clicks tighten cable to feel a slight drag at the wheels, release brake leaver and check wheels are free to turn.

Screeching noise from rear wheels. pads have been changed, discs changed, calipers changed, noise still present. it is not always there, more often after I keep the brakes pressed for more than 2 minu


It is possible that the hand brake shoes have no lining left so I would be looking in that area . The noise id probably from that fact that the handbrake has been dragging and now is worn out.

Wheel smokes,brake dragging


Make sure your handbrake cable is adjusted properly. Adjust the rear brake shoes down to where the wheels turn freely with the linings only just touching the drums. Be sure to pump the pedal a few times after adjusting, then try again.
The front wheels (pads and calipers) will just about never bind, so concentrate on the rear wheels. If you do suspect the front wheels, release the bleeder valve for just a second and then try again.

The rear passenger wheel is making a grinding /rubbing noise is it an easy job to repair also there seems to be more brake dust on that wheel is this the cause of the problem due to the wheel bearing ps...


This definitely sounds like a wheel bearing going out, or possibly the rear brake shoes/pads are worn out. Either way you will have to take the wheels off to determine the cause of the noise. Changing the wheel bearing or brake shoes/pads is not that difficult of a job and with the right instructions, you will be back on the road in no time. For detailed information on changing the wheel bearing, please go here. If it turns out to be a break shoe/pad, then please go here for detailed instructions on changing brake pads/shoes.
