SOURCE: how do i adjust the hand break system on focus 1999

hi there, you will need to slacken of the cable adjuster just next to the handbrake lever under its gaiter, jack up the vheicle and remove the rear wheels, remove the rear brake drums, clean and adjust the brake shoes also remove any dust from the drum, if the shoes are worn out they will need replacing, with the drums removed check everything is working freely by getting someone to operate the handbrake lever as you visually inspect the shoes you should see them moving backwards and forwards, if not then strip down and free off, i would advice doing one side at a time so you always have a point of referance to work from. check the wheel cylinder is free and not leaking, if so replace. adjust the brake shoes and refit the drums, once this is done readjust your hanbrake cable so it comes up 3-4 clicks, if this seems a little dawnting your local garage should be able to do you this job for a small fee, hope this helps

SOURCE: were do you adjust handbrake crv r/h drive 2003

dear in most cases it will be very hard to reach adjuster but there is another way to get ur hand brake better

required tools

1- lift jack "big one"
2- proper wrench
3- car supports for safety
4- screw driver


now u have to do the following:-

1- lift up the car from the rear middle but be sure it is in NORMAL gear and hand brake is down
supports for front tires is highly recommended
2- remove both of your rear wheels put wheels under the car as if suddenly car fall it will fall on tires and nothing bad will happen
3- put car supports and both sides of rear Axle for more safety
4- now u can see your brake discs, near center of brake discs u will find a removable knob remove it by screw driver and see in side u will see the hand brake clutch push it by ur screw driver towards the center of the wheel until the maximum u can get
5- repeat last step for the other brake disc
6- restore the knob push it hard using screw driver
7- fix ur tires back, remove supports, lower the car and u r as good as new

How do i adjust handbreak as cables have stretched


often times like on mazda3 you can find a small tab near the hand brake that can be popped open to access the adjustment nut. Tightening the nut will tighten the cables. Alternatively on models with out this added accessibility, the hand brake cables can be adjusted with greater ease at the rear wheels as opposed to removing the center column to gain access for cable adjustment. For more information check out http://autoabsolute.ca Auto Absolute Home Page

How do I adjust the shift linkage cables.


Your shifter cables are most likely worn out or stretched out. Adjusting the cables moves the shifter arm a little bit. The turnbuckles for adjusting are inside the center console under the shifter arm. To get to them, you have to take out the center console. One cable controls side to side movement and the other controls front to back, don't adjust the wrong one on accident. 25311622-za4bqvjhdrn3arnyccyp5xaz-3-0.jpg

Hi how do you adjust the hand brake on a 2004 jeep cherokee extreme sport


Once you have removed the center console, you should be able to see the base of the hand brake. There should be a bold which you can adjust to tighten or loosen the cable. While at it take time to check for the condition of the cable. Check for wear and have it replaced. Adjustment of the handbrake may work for a while with a damage cable but may break when you least expected.

You need to adjust your hand brake (e-brake) you will usually find the adjustment bolt under the console between the front seats, or under the dash, depending on the type of hand brake you have. it looks like two cables going to a crossbar then single cable from the crossbar to the hand brake. at the end of the cross bar will be a nut that you use to adjust the hand brake (make sure you hand brake is off before adjusting it)

How to tighten uo the hand break cable on my bmw


You'll need to remove the center console that is over the hand brake. (screws and clips will most likely be hidden)
Once the console is off, you should be able to see two cables connecting to the base of the lever (one cable on the left of the lever and one to the right as these control the ebrake on their side of the car respectively.
Loosen the nut and you can shimmy the cable to tighten it.
Don't do it too tight or your ebrake may be engaged even though the lever is all the way down.

Describe your Hyundai Problem Were do you adjust


This will require you to take the center console out for a better view and to more easily access and adjust the hand brake.

the book is correct it is under the hand brake itself and very easy to adjust once you get the console out of the way its held in by screws and you will have to take it totaly out.

you need two wrenches to adjust the parking brake and that's it.. remember to leave it in the down position when adjusting it and pull it up after about every 3 full turns turns just to check to see how tight you have it. you don't want to over tighten it
the emergency brake will be on all the time and wear out the brake pads. this sounds harder than it really is. the hardest part of the whole thing is getting the console out of the way once that is done you will be able to see how its done

How to adjust hand break hyundai elantra 2000 model


1. Remove the console upper cover.
2. Remove the crash center facia panel.
3. Remove Console Assembly.
4. Adjust the parking brake lever stroke.

You may not have to remove all of these pieces, just enough that you can access the adjusting nuts. Make sure both cables have tension, they are famous for breaking, and making the other side too loose.
