Depending in the car and how it us a tually fixed in place, or attached to the bidy of the vehicle.
You can some times attach some electrical wire to the brake/side of the cable ie the end, then when pulling the cable out from over the tank, (Providing there are no fixings holdin it in place above yhe tank) Leaving the wire attached as not to compltle follow the barkecables, in place then attach the newcables to the wite and pull back iver the tank toward the brakes again.

This works prividing there is sufficant space.
Without kbowing the type if vehical its a little hard to advise!

How to adjust handbrake

If you remove the center console you should be able to get at your adjusting screw. The end of the brake cable where it attaches to the brake handle will usually have a large threaded area for adjustment with an adjustment nut and a jamb nut. Simply loosen the jamb nut and set the desired cable tension with the adjustment nut and tighten the jamb nut back down. Then replace the console. If you are unable to get the desired tension at the cable you might have worn brake shoes that need replacing.

How do you open the bonnet on a fiat punto elx 1.2 2001 as my bonnet cable has snapped

You should be able to get at it from under the vehicle if you have small enough arms and hands. The cable is at the top of the engine bay and connects to what looks like a curled piece of wire(which is the release catch). It is barely visible and diffycult to operate. Someone pressing down on the front centre of the hood (directly above the catch mechanism) will make things easier for the unfortunate individual that has to stick his head under the vehicle. It can be done without the need for tools. When you do get it open and need to replace the cable do not just pull the old cable out. It is a nightmare to replace without a draw wire. Fasten a piece of string or wire at least 2 meters(6-7 feet) to the old cable before removing it. Then remove the end of the string from the old cable and connect it to the new one before drawing the new cable into place using the draw wire. Some insulation tape over the end of the cable where it joins to the draw wire(to prevent it catching on something) will ease matters.

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!

I have been having a clunking sound from my peugeot 206 for a week or so now and this morning it did it again then when i went to put the handbrake back on its really high what has happened the handbrake...

Problem will be with the rear brake shoes. Very likely one of 2 handbrake cables corroded and snapped.
Access to handbrake is under the plastic centre console - then under flap in carpet. Should be a ballance bar that should be equal 90 degrees. If it's not - replace both handbrake cables. DIY job -but you need a 2ft breaker bar for the Hub nuts.

Handbrake handle has no feeling i parked up pulledthe handbrake it had plenty of tention then suddenly went bang then no feeling i am hoping this is just the cable & not too exspensive please help....

if you are able and be safe by chocking the wheels, lay on your back and look on the inside of the back wheels and this will tell you a little more of what you are dealing with. If you heard a bang then your cable has either come loose at eh back hubs or your cable has snapped loose from the handbrake underneath. This better probably be checked as soon as possible because you may be only using your front brakes to stop now, because your parking brake is tied in with your rear brakes.

How do i adjust the handbrake on my mx3 its the 1.8 v6 with rear disc brakes

theres only two places a adjustment would be the easest way is to lift your handbrake three clicks either under the handle you will see a nut on a threaded bolt turn the nut in until the slack makes tighten hard dont over tighten push button drop handle back down now if the adjustment nut is not under the handle under the car you will see your rear cables going into a single cable all three joined by a adjustment bolt with nut hold with pliers three clicks up on handle turn nut in till slack is gone drop handle back down

The handbrake adjustment is at the handbrake. Pull off the rubber boot around the hand brake. (it pulls open at the botto of the handle and slips off over it). Next locate the 10mm bolt under the rear cup holder (there may be a little felt in there covering it). Remove the bolt.

Lift the console at the rear, it should pop loose at the front and lift up. You should have clear access to the adjustment bolt. Loosen the 10mm locking nut and this should allow you to adjust the cable.

Turn the adjustment clockwise to tighten the cable and once adjusted, re-tighten the locking nut. Reverse the whole process to put the console etc back together.
