The handbrake adjust is normally under the vehicle. The cable either splits into 2 cables or more likely, goes directly to a small curved bar. The single cable has a threaded end that goes through the bar with a nut on the end. Raise and secure the vehicle on jackstands before you crawl underneath. Look at one of the back wheels - you'll see a cable coming out to the front. Follow this cable to where it either crosses over the aforementioned bar or is connected to it. In the middle of this bar you'll see the nut from the front cable - Use a sharpie or other felt tip pen to mark the thread at the nut on the back side .Adjust this nut so it travels forward( towards the front of the vehicle) 5 or 6 threads , and check the handbrake to see if it's ok. Sometimes you can remove the cover over the handbrake and find an adjuster there - you may have to remove the center console if you have one.
Hope this helps!

How to free 2001 subaru forester parking brake


Most likely you have two problems. The park brake cables can rust under the car, and jam, usually where they pass into the brake assembly. Replacement is required.

The park brake assembly (drum or drum-in-disk) are more or less the same, and small internal bits (springs and clips) rust and wear out.

Replacing the cables requires the brake assembly to be opened up for inspection anyway.

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.

How do i tighten handbrake on honda crv 2007


yoiu dont touch the cable ,you remove the rear disks and adjust the shoes which are inside the the brake disk,check the type of system first though as it may have the handbrake on the caliper and if this type adjusting the cable will not work anyway as it will not pass the annual mechanical inspection on handbrake efficiency if the knife edge lever points are worn inside the caliper

I need to tighten handbrake not sure how to get to the nut that is i dont know how to begin to take off the console


you adjust the handbrake by removing the rear drums and cleaning the dust out then the lip on the outside of the interior of the drum and then adjusting manually .(rear drums) adjusting the cable only will result in the vehicle not passing the brake tester on the annual vehicle mechanical inspection

How to trouble shoot the brake system?


To trouble shoot the brake system you have to check:AntiLock Brake System ABS:
Hydraulic Modulator
Basically this unit holds steady or bleeds off pressure in brake line, as necessary, when the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM) detects an abnormal deceleration in the speed of the wheel. On 2000 and later models the EBCM and Brake Pressure Modulator Valve (BPMV) are mounted on a bracket attached on the left strut tower.
Wheel Speed Sensors, brake fluid level, brake hoses and lines, inspect and replacement, Brake hydraulic system-bleeding, Brake light switch, check, adjustment and replacement.
Disk brake caliper, disk brake pads, drum brake shoes, master cylinder, master cylinder reservoir, O-rings replacement, parking brake adjustment, parking brake cables inspect and replacement, parking brake shoes-replacement, power brake booster, check or replacement, wheel cylinder inspect and replace.
