remove the back brake drums ,slacken handbrake cable then run a mini grinder around the lip on the edge of the drum .Then adjust the auto adjusters manully so when the drum is push on it just goes on ,tap with a hammer all around the drum to level the shoes and if need be adjust up a bit more ,then when finished re-adjust the cable so you have three notches on handbrake lever

SOURCE: hi there my kia shuma

This car is'nt made for the American market, But that's Ok as the answer is the same for all Kias. Pulling fuses will not deactivate the alarm. The ECM key learning uses the dealers interface and can't be adressed by a mechanic or a disableing meathod Event the dealer can't disable the alarm system as it's inheient to the onbroard engine contol system and it disables the car this allowes the manufacturer to claim an insureance discount.

How do I adjust the handbrake on 2003 Kia Carnival


I have not checked a kia carnival but worked on most kia cars. There are two hand brake adjustments. One is at the hand brake lever. open up the hand brake cover and look for the nut adjuster where the end of the hand brake cable is attached to. Tighten up that nut until you find a comfortable hand brake position and the brakes locks.

the other adjustment is found at the rear brake drums. you have to remove the tires and tighten the adjusting nut behind the brake plates. there is a small hole, usually covered with a rubberized plug. remove that plug and adjust the brake with a flat screwdriver.

How do I adjust the handbrake on a Carnival KIA


my favourite ?? i think not but i do have problems with this vehicle as the cable is pulling two different length cables at a funny angle on the LHD models anyway as for the RHd iam not sure of the layout but i would imagine its similar ,fow firstly make sure the cable adjuster under the car where the drivers seat is is slackened off and make sure you oil the adjuster first and leave a while if your in the northern climes as the rain and salt will corrode it ,then slacken the cable off then remove the rear drums one at a time will suffice and make sure that lip on the outer edge is rubbed down i use a small angle grinder for this as it takes forever and day with a emery paper ,then after making sure the wheel cylinders are free by pushing in with a screwdriver ,i then adjust the auto adjuster three clicks at a time till the drum just slides on and a faint rubbing sound can be heard ,then a tap around the drum with the hammer and if the noise stops i remove the drum and give it one click on the autoadjuster at a time till its rubbing with a very slight resistance ,after both drums are done i then adjust the adjuster till three clicks on the footpedal handbrake .job sorted ,slap a bit of copperslip grease over the threads on the adjuster so they do not corrode up again .But i do seem to get unevan braking on the roller brake tester at the inspection station but providing its under 20% difference then thats ok but these vehicles do suffer from unevan handbraking no matter how good you adjust the shoes up even with new handbrake cables as one is longer than the other and goes off at a right angle

How do I get to the parking brake adjusting nut under the center console of a 2001 honda accord LX


If handbrake has excessive travel and the brake pedal is low then you havent set the rear brakes up properly ,if a drum then you clean the lip on the edge of the drum so it has a bevel then you manually adjust the auto adjuster till the drum just slides over then tap outer edge of drum wth a small hammer to level the shoes and then see if you can then adjust the auto adjuster up a bit more .Also when taking the drum off again make sure that the handbrake mechanism lever is right back ,Now if you adjust the brakes on the handbrake cable then it will be out of square and will not work on a brake roller tester ,and the footbrake will still feel spongey then you get a inspection failure for excessive pedal travel and low handbrake efficiency ,this model of car should be able to lock the rear brakes up at 30mph when jerking the handbrake up hard and it shouldnt have more than 3 clicks when done correctly
