Usualy done under the car on the cable . Get a flashlight and follow the cable and you will come across a place to tighten the cable. Pretty easy!

SOURCE: handbrake adjustment?

you havent set the rear brakes up properly,slacken off handbrake cable first,remove the rear shoe any side first or both together ,firstly with a small angle grinder flaten the lip thats built up around the edge of the drum ,taking care not to catch the shiney facing.then look at at the handbrake pulling arm and make sure it right the way back onto the shoe .Next the hard part and this is adjusting the the automatic adjuster till as you put drum on their is a slight resistance sliding over shoes but the drum turns with a slight resistance and a bit of noise where the shoes are just catching,Do both side sides and adjust handbrake till you have 3 notches (clicks) .check wheels still turn ok with a slight noise of the shoes dragging .Now footbrake should be firmer and this car will lock back wheels up at 30mph ,and bounce out the brake tester at the annual mechanical inspection

hi from the uk in answer to your question you do not need to disconnect or remove the abs sensor you just remove the brake drum from the hub then remove shoe locating springs that retain shoes to backplate then lift off and remove bottom return spring this then allows you to slip the brake shoes off w/cyl at top complete with spring and auto adjuster ? then to remove the handbrake cable just pull the shoe and the quadrant lever apart so cable can be lifted out of the hook up on lever ? you can now interchange shes/springs /adjuster on your bench ? also run te adjuster wheel back on thread to off position this will enable you to fit shoes back to backplate and moreso help in fitting cable to its hookup ? when brakeshoes are refitted ? and centralized on back plate ? you can manuall rotate the adjuster wheel and keep tryin the drum for fitting and rotating with no binding trial/error method when satisfied ? refit screws to secure drum then do same with other side when completed you must bleed both wheels this will improve b/pedal your handbrake will also be better/less travel when applied hope these instructions help you ? best wishes from uk

I just got my handbrake adjusted in my hyundai excel. whenever i pull up on a slope it still rolls back with the handbrake on


If the hill is steep or is covered with dirt or sand then you may not have a problem. Did you park there before and it held? Do you use the hand-brake all the time? Have there been times that you forgot to release the parking brake? When the shoes were adjusted were the shoes inspected before the adjustment? The tech. should have looked for problems.

hi from uk after supporting car on stand or blocks ? remove wheel then you will see x head screwsx2 remove screws then release handbrake drum should now rotate freely you may need to lightly but firmly tap the drum off the hub if you have an old vac ? use it to vac the dust from shoes and drum ? if your shoes are ok ? then make sure the auto adjuster is free and clean? if your h/brake travel is high and the reason for checking brakes? then notch up auto adjuster a couple of clicks at atime whilst keep trying the drum fits so the shoes are just enabling rotation of drum by hand then press b/pedal a cople of times to centralise shoes to drum ? if drum still rotates freely with no binding on shoes ? then re assemble carry out same proceedure on other side ? do not adjust brake cable! unless you do adjustment as above you may/will find your h/brake is better /less travel ? also your foot brake will feel better and less travel ? hope this helps you but if you req further info/assistance by all means come back to board best wishes from lancashire uk
