Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla

2 Answers

How do I adjust the handbrake on my 2009 Auris 1.6 petrol, is it the same as earlier pre 2007 cars cars?

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.

    did you have to wind in the pistons to install pads if so are the pins on back of the pads aligned with slot in piston if not align if they are aligned properly then caliper is not functioning properly we dont have auris in the US sorry

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

Posted on Mar 29, 2015

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."

Repeat question - how do I adjust the handbrake on my 2009 toyota Auris TR 1.6petrol car


You just bought rear pads. The E brake pads are on the inside of the rotors. They have to be adjusted. They are not self adjusting. When I do brakes, all adjustments are free. If there is some reason I can't adjust them, I would tell you. So your problem could be the inner pads are worn or need adjusted, the cable could be stretched out, or a combination of both. Usually cable adjustment is under the car.

Honda Jazz 2007 1.4 rear pads and discs replaced no hold on handbrake still. Adjusted handbrake but still nothing could this mean I need new calibers? Thanks for the previous answers but there is no


Callipers are what hold the pads and the cylinders on the car. They have nothing to do with your problem. However they are attached by 2 bolts that are fixed to the axle housing mount. These bolts will rust up and not allow the callipers to move and centralize on the disc rotor. If you look at the callipers you will see 2 bolts that have what looks like a rubber seal under the head These are the bolts . Although you have adjusted the hand brake, if you have shoes inside the hub of the disc rotor they will have to be adjusted first and not just the lever.

Timing belt or chain


Toyotas usually have chain if that is what you were asking and Auris started to have chain since 2007 model IIRC.

My handbrake needs adjusting in my Toyota Corolla 1994. Can u please explain how this adjustment is done.


Hello, My usual Brands are Ford products, but Foreign cars usually use simple, less expensive ways to do things. Assuming the brake pads are good, there should be a cable connected to the handbrake. You would usually pull the handbrake up to engage about 1/4 the way to engagement and lock it there.
Then you would go underneath the car and find the cable that stretches from the handbrake lever to a juction with a second cable. There should be an adjusting thread somewhere at this intersection.

With the rear wheels off the ground, you would tighten the nut on the threads of the handbrake cable until you hear rubbing in the rear brakes. Then get inside the car and pull back on the handbrake lever and you should not be able to move the rear wheels with the handbrake set. You then release the handbrake 100% and the rear wheels should turn mostly without noise.

Now if you can not find an adjustment nut under the car, it is possible the handbrake adjustment nut is under the handbrake cover/boot inside the car. Still use the same process of setting the lever 1/4 engaged and tightening the threaded cable until the rear wheels start dragging.

I hope this helps you.
