It's a cable adjustment under the car, It looks like a turnbuckle that you spin to take slack out of cable. Another item to try since your car is 4 wheel disc, the rear calipers are threaded not smooth like front calipers and have to be "walked out" - a local guy said pull up and release park brake lever a few times to walk pistons out a little before doing the turnbuckle adjustment

58 reg fiat bravo need to ajuST handbrake 1.9 diesel rear disc brakes


If the calipers are working properly they are self adjust for the life of the pads. If the park brake is not functioning properly maintenance is required, usually strip and clean road debris.

Hand brake ajustment on a 1994 toyota carina


remove the rear drums then inspect and manually adjust the shoes auto adjuster ,clean the lip off on the outside of the drum so the shoes just about allow the drum on ,this is the correct way not screw the cable setting up to max ,do it my way and the brake pedal will be hard as you have reduced the reserve travel and the handbrake will have two /three clicks ,when you do this make sure the rear brake shoes which have trhe handbrake lever ,make sure this lever is right back if not slacken the handbrake cable to allow the cable to come back in case some weekend mechanic or a dealer fitter has tightened the cable only ,the former as they dont know and the later because their on bonus payment

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.

Rear brake replacement


hi to get the pads in you did screw the calipers pistons all the way back and you should have backed the hand brake cable off as well then adjusted the cable afterwards problem with self adjusting calipers is you can adjust the handbrake cable and the brakes are ok until driven then they can bind so try backing the adjustment off on the handbrake [should really change both calipers as a pair to keep the axles brake balance but this is not anything to do with the brakes binding] best of luck paul

How do you ajust handbreak cabel on ford focus 1.6 3 door year 2004


The tightness of the handbrake is a function of the adjustmnent of the rear brakes. If the rear brakes are working properly, the handbrake adjustment will be correct. I would change the rear brake pads first, before I tried anything else. Worn pads or nonfunctioning adjusters are the likely culprit.
If you do not want to repalce the rear brakes, you can find the instructions for tightening the handbrake on a website called Focushacks.com. But, if you make the modification (I don't recommend it) you will have to change it back when you get around to changing the rear pads.
