Question about 1994 Hyundai Excel
Describe your Hyundai Problem
Were do you adjust the Handbrake cable on December 95 excel 12 valve model is it under the floor carpet the Manuel[Book] said in the center console ,there is no linkage only the gear shift and its linkage the hand brake handle is situated by itself about a 100mm back from the center console . Under the car I can see no adjuster on the brake cable line the cable comes straight out of the rear drum brakes backing plates goes a short way through an outer cable sleeve then disappears into the floor pan .Yes I know that I can possibly adjust each drum brake individually but all cars have a common cable shorten er were 2 cables become 1
This will require you to take the center console out for a better view and to more easily access and adjust the hand brake.
the book is correct it is under the hand brake itself and very easy to adjust once you get the console out of the way its held in by screws and you will have to take it totaly out.
you need two wrenches to adjust the parking brake and that's it.. remember to leave it in the down position when adjusting it and pull it up after about every 3 full turns turns just to check to see how tight you have it. you don't want to over tighten it
the emergency brake will be on all the time and wear out the brake pads. this sounds harder than it really is. the hardest part of the whole thing is getting the console out of the way once that is done you will be able to see how its done
