Hi,normaly if you go under the car at the back you will see the brake cable going from one wheel to the other it should have a adjusting nut and bolt which you tighten.
first pull the emergency brake on so when you pull it up it clicks free times,then go under the car and adjust untill the wheels lock,then release the emergency brake to make shore the wheels go round ok,if so job done,if not just release the juster a bit more untill its right.
there is also a item on the market that you put on the cable to take up the slack,its also valid for passing mot as well,its like a you bolt with a ajuster on it,if you asked at a spares shop they should have one,and with this job its a good idear to get some penertrating fluid as these ajusters are normaly rusted and seased up.
all the best.

SOURCE: where is the fuel pump relay on a 2004 vauxhall meriva

It is on the passenger side of the engine compartment under the wiper panel. its deep in because of the body design. you'll see a relay box. It should click on and then quickly off when the key is turned to run without starting the engine

SOURCE: i have a warning light on my vauxhall

Emisions related can be a lot of things. It would have logged a fault code to the computer. You need the vehiclescomputer scaned to reveal the fault. Could be lots of things (O2 sensor in the exhaust, airflow sensor, vacume leak, misfire, etc...) the only way to know will be to have the code extracted.
