Hi. Your adjustment on rear brake indside rotor if off on one side. Pool both rotors out and you will see the distances in between the hand brake pads are different. Masure it and adjust it. Hand brakes are mechanical no hydraulics so it must be your adjustment

Handbrake adjustment bmw e46 How do I adjust the handbrake on a bmw 318i 1999


you can't. there's those star nuts that are supposed to do it, but they don't work. You can access the star legs through the access hole on the drum. spin them till the drum stops. Test the hand brake and you'll find it still doesn't stop the car while moving. BMW engineering.....brilliant.

Failed mot on handbrake and service brake on 1999 rover 620 diesel,new calipers fitted last year, how do i adjust


The handbrake is an actual cable to the rear brakes. You can try adjusting the read brakes by baking up then hitting them hard to actuate the adjuster, the cable should have an adjuster in it that can be tightend to take up any slack and make it hold better.

Replaced rear calipers and need to know where to adjust emergency brake, 1999 mazda 626


Not 100% sure but peel back the handbrake lever cover.Beside the lever where the handbrake cable attaches there may be an adjuster there.Either directly on the cable itself or by locknuts threaded on the cable.Hope this helps

Replace rear brakes adjust handbrake


The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.
