SOURCE: 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.

most of the time it is underneth the car look under on both back wheels you will see cables about the thickness of your finger follow them up to roughley the middle of the car they will both meet on like a t bar with 1 nut this is the nut that you tightern but you have to do this with the hand brake off so make sure you are on flat serfise and all wheels are chocked up so it wont roll while you are under it,, saftey first

Check the rear brakes for excessive travel. Rear brake shoe adjustment is important to the park brake travel. Hope this helps.

Check underneath the carriage (under the car). Follow the brake linkage to the hand brake lever. You will probably find a mechanism that you can adjust for the handbrake level.

How do I get to the parking brake adjusting nut under the center console of a 2001 honda accord LX


If handbrake has excessive travel and the brake pedal is low then you havent set the rear brakes up properly ,if a drum then you clean the lip on the edge of the drum so it has a bevel then you manually adjust the auto adjuster till the drum just slides over then tap outer edge of drum wth a small hammer to level the shoes and then see if you can then adjust the auto adjuster up a bit more .Also when taking the drum off again make sure that the handbrake mechanism lever is right back ,Now if you adjust the brakes on the handbrake cable then it will be out of square and will not work on a brake roller tester ,and the footbrake will still feel spongey then you get a inspection failure for excessive pedal travel and low handbrake efficiency ,this model of car should be able to lock the rear brakes up at 30mph when jerking the handbrake up hard and it shouldnt have more than 3 clicks when done correctly

How do i adjust the handbrake cable on my 1998 seat ibiza


you dont its that simple ,if handbrake high and brake pedal low then the back drums need taking off and adjust the rear brakes manually by turning the little knurled wheel ,skim the outside of the drum with a small angle grinder to remove the lip and leave a bit of a bevel then adjust the the shoes till they catch when spinning the drum ,the cowboy way is to screw the adjuster up thats at the back of the handbrake behind the ashtray but if you do this vehicle will fail the yearly test for low handbrake readings and excessive pedal travel on the footbrake ,especially if it comes in front of me for its test

Chrysler voyager drum brakes excess hand brake travel no adjuster how can a take up slack


i had the same problem with my crysler voyager 1997,a friend of mine who is a mechanic found the problem,it is a self adjuster on the handbrake itself,once drums are adjusted up you need to go to your hanbrake area and you will find a white plastic clip on the bottom of the lever ,once removed you pull up your handbrake a few times and it self adjusts,then put the plastic clip back on,this soved my problem,by doing this my handbrake went from about 13 clicks on max to hold . to about 6 clicks and held perfectly
