SOURCE: handbrake adjustment

HI THERE DES DAVIES BEFORE YOU GO ADJUSTING H/BRAKE FIRST THING TO CHECK IS THAT UNDERNEATH AT BACK PLATE WHERE BRAKE DRUMS GO OVER MAKE SURE THAT H/BRAKE IS OFF (BLOCK WHEELS) & CHECK THAT PLUNGER ON BACK PLATE DOES NOT PUSH THROUGH IF IT DOES THEN REAR BRAKES NEED ADJUSTED YOU WILL THEN NEED TO SLACKEN OFF H/BRAKE ADJUSTMENT UNDERNEATH CAR(NYLOCK SCREWS)ONCE YOU HAVE DONE THIS REMOVE DRUMS & ADJUST BRAKE SHOES OTHERWISE YOU WILL STILL HAVE A POOR H/BRAKE.

SOURCE: 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.

How to adjust handbrake on2001 mondeo


General advice:All handbrakes rise adjust from under the car,very rare behind the handle lever.Worning:Handbrake adjustment need to balance so u need to know if each back wheel brakes even,in order to see that u may have to jack the car and count the rising clicks on handbrake lever to see at what point the wheel stops (u must rotate the wheel by hand (and maybe ask for a friend to brake),with quite some force.Inspect also the interior component (in the back drum if apply,if on disc there is no need)Empiric :by driving at low speed on even road and handbrake hard,the marks of each wheel on the road must start +/- at the same point.Warning:This is dangerous manouver,the car may drift,do not steer while braking,if not shure,better take it to a dino test.Tip:if u tune eack whell at the max brake open position,the handbrake balance,and from there u can adjust the hight of the lever rise by loosing or tighten the cable.Hope u deal it.Cheers.
