Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla
It has recently had new pads at about 50,000miles and over the last few weeks it will not hold the car on a slight slope with the brake hard on.
If you have a handbrake, you can remove some screws around the handbrake covering. The screws are sometimes well hidden so you have to look around.
When you get the covering off, there are two adjusting nuts at the rear of the handbrake. Turn the nuts until you can get "5 clicks" on the handbrake to set the brakes.
Some jack up the car while doing this so they can rotate the wheels by hand to feel when the brakes touch the pads.
Hope this helps

If the brakes in the rear are drums you have to adjust them up first

Testimonial: "The car is a 2009 AURIS 1.6 petrol as stated in my question (not a Corolla).I do believe that all Auris cars are fitted with disc brakes all round.Can you please answer my question re adjusting my handbrake as there is quite a lot of free movement on the lever and the rear pads have only done about 10,000miles so cannot get enough pressure on brakes to hold car even on a slight slope."
