Question about 2007 Toyota Yaris
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.

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

have someone pump the pedal and hold it, then you work from the right rear, left rear, right front, left front, while the person pumps and holds several times at each wheel.
