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.

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


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

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.

Model T clutch adjustment


Check to see that when you pull the lever back, that the parking brakes aren't grabbing. Approximately straight up, and down with the lever, is the neutral position, then pulling it back slightly towards the seat will set the parking brake.

Also, push the low pedal in very slowly, until you feel when you hit the low speed cam. You'll feel it. There will suddenly be more resistance at this point. That's where neutral is. The pedal should move down about 1 and 1/2 inches. The manual states halfway, this may be incorrect.

Jack up the car, (Use chock blocks under the tires, and work on a hard, level flat surface), check that the parking brakes are not setting when the lever is in the neutral position.

And yes, your deduction is correct about when the clutch oil is cold. The clutch used is a 'Wet Clutch'.

Handbrake Adjustment


On the Toyota, you can do it two ways: The easiest is to push in on the release button on the lever and move the lever up and down twenty or thirty times while the vehicle is slowly moving forward. A long driveway or parking lot is best for this. Or, there is an adjusting nut at the end of the park brake cable under the handle. If you pull the handle up, you should be able to see it down inside the center console on the bottom side of the handle. Turn the nut clockwise a turn or two.

The daewoo is anyone's guess. I've never even seen one.
