there is an adjustment on the calliper itself, there is a capping bolt i think its a 14mm from memory(dont quote me)once you undo that,(becareful not to round it off as it is thin in height) there is an allen key bolt on the inside that can be wound in or out depending on the adjustment, in yourcase obviously wind it in to be tighter,
if this does not work its highly likely you calliper needs rebuilding sorry to say, i have issues with my handbrake also, due to its poor design i think it will always be very average

Check this site for any Audi codes. This is a problem with the air that it injected into the exhaust system to help burn any uncombusted fuel. Check the air pump located in front of the pass front wheel on the bottom of the engine. It is pretty easy to find. The air pump has a suction hose that goes to the air filter housing so that it has filtered (clean) air, follow the hose

If you need to repair the brake module, there is a fantastic article, complete with photos, at http://www.audiworld.com/tech/elec116.shtml
I followed this example for my '98 and now it works perfectly. I found a shop on eBay to rebuild my module (lifetime warranty) for under $200. It took me about 1 hour to pull it off and about 45 min to put it back on with minimum shop tools

SOURCE: I assume that this means
Try getting another person to push down above the bonnet latch as you pull the lever.They may have to push it down a few times,A sudden quick push may do it.Hope this helps
