Question about 2005 Volvo XC90
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

SOURCE: parking brake cable adjustment
if its rear shoes there is a cog wheel that turns in and out to close and spread the shoes just turn the wheel to make the shoes go in a little at a time and the drum will go back on

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.

make sure e-brk shoe adjuster is all the way closed. then start adjusting little by little until you can slide disc back on and have a little friction when you spin it by hand, also hope your replacing dics, old one sometime have lots of rust stopping disc from going on anyway good luck and hope this helps.

Hi tim to adjust the parking brake shoe is take off one wheel bolt and turn it untill you see the parking brake ajuster ( look like a gear) use torch and flat screw driver. first tight the adjuster untill you cant turn the wheel then undo it for atleast 8 notches
