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.

    The first solution is correct. I just did it on my wife's Yaris, it is at the pull lever.

SOURCE: handbrake

this car has rear drum brakes and are very easy to adjust. jack up and support the car look for slots with rubber plugs in them at the backing plates of the rear wheels, get a screwdriver and insert it into the slot the is an adjuster in there and you want to turn that just a few turns youll hear it click one little turn at a time continue doing this to both rear wheels untill you just feel them drag just a little as you manuelly turn the wheel by hand this will be plenty (you dont want them very tight as you drive and the brakes heat up they will expand and if they are too tight will drag and overheat please rate -jeff

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.

Replacing the rear drums after the shoes are in. Don't seem to want to go on.


Sounds like the shoes are adjusted to far out, adjust the shoes in (closed) until you can fit the drum there should be just a slight drag when you rotate the drum.

you can try go under the car and use two spanners size 13mm to adjust the tension on the cable if its not too loose you will get away with it. if not you gotta take the rear wheels off and the rear hubs and adjust the brake shoes inside the hubs.

How do you adjust the handbrake on a 1996 Peugeot 306 XR Hatchback ?


Handbrake is normally mechanically connected to
the brakes by steel cable 1/8 inch thick. At the end of the cables are bolts with adjusting nuts to adjust the handbrakes. These nuts must be adjusted to have an equal tension on the brakes, otherwise, swerving may result. It is advised to have a mechanic todo this job.

Brake adjustment


there is only two real ways to tension your handbrake and one of them is just behind the acctual handbrake lever which is usually an ashtray or some kind of panel which will just remove and reveal a bolt with two secondary bolts comin out of other end. should only have to tighten the centre bolt though if the other two need tensioning you mite find there is excess on one side or the other. under the car also is a tensioning bar either side of the chasis.

How do i find the ajustment nut for handbrake onhyundai accen


The hand brake on this model can be adjusted from inside the car. Where the handbrake is in the center console, the plastic around it can be taken off. There is a screw on each side that needs to come out, and then from there just pull up, and twist it around and up from the parking brake. Set it aside along with the screws. On the inside you will see what looks like a long gold colored screw, t his is for the tension adjustment. Part of it should have a hex head that you can fit a wrench on. My 03 Hyundai uses a 12mm wrench. Keep turning it towards the passenger side occasionally pulling up on the hand brake to test the tension. Once the tension feels tight but not too tight that's it and you are done. You should be able to pull up on the hand brake about 3-4 clicks and that would be appropriate tension...
