How do I adjust my handbrake on a ford transit 05

if rear drums then you need to remove the drums ,clean the lip on the outside of the drum the adjust the brakes up manually and they will fit snug with the lip removed ,use a small radial disk cutter for this ,then the handbrake will be right and the footbrake will be hard as well ,just adjusting the cable will result in the vehicle failing the inspection due the handbrake lever inside the drum being over the 180? position ,us old fleet diesel fitters never die we answer questions on here

As soon as i turn my washer on it just makes a loud grinding kinda noise how do i fix?

If the machine was delivered new, has all the transit straps been removed ? If the machine was delivered without transit straps then the drum could be off a support and it's drum wheel could be grinding on the rear panel.

Shaking drum after a move and had it shipped

Hi the answer to your problem may well be in your question!When machines are moved they sometimes use transit screws to keep the drum still.They are always to be found on new machines and the engineer that installs the machine will as a matter of course remove these screws when installing a machine.Perhaps your removal firm installed some transit screws as they moved your machine but forgot to take them out again.If this is the case they don't try and use it again as it could result in serious damage.I hope no damage has been done as a result of trying to use the machine with these screws in but thats something you should take up with the people you presumably paid to remove and install your machine if this turns out to be the case.

What are transit screws for a xd1225 and what will happen if u dont remove them

The transit screws keep the components from moving and getting damaged during moving or shipping. The unit will not operate if these screws are not removed.

Hi all i have a big problem heard a big bang the

When it was fitted did the installer remove the transit bolts from the rear of the machine because it sounds as if it has done damage to the drum and housing when it went into a spin.
Hope this helps.

Good Luck

Prep to ship Savin 4035 without damage

The main thing you need to do, is to remove the toner bottle assembly, drum unit and developer unit. There is a small black stopper you'll see once you pull out the toner bottle unit. Remove the stopper and the tray holding the bottle will slide out of the machine. The drum unit has a thumb latch on top of the unit and all you have to do is open the right side door, release the lever and remove the drum unit. DO NOT TOUCH THE DRUM! The developer unit is below the drum unit. There is one screw holding a silver piece of metal which secures the unit in place. Loose the screw and fold it down to the left and then remove the developer unit. These steps will keep toner and developer from spilling out into the machine. Good luck.

Transit brackets

Hiya .. the transit bolts are located under the lid at either side ..or at the rear... they are fairly long bolts which hold the drum and balance in place.. until installation. they will be sheathed in fairly hefty rubber grommets.

Screws for removal of lid located at the rear..2- or 4.. remove these slide lid front to back.. remove bolts if they are they are present... refit lid... note uneven siting of an appliance can cause excessive vibration as well!

Let me know if this sorts your prob
