Handbrake not holding.


Recommended Posts

I've just replaced a few components on the ear including backplate, handbrake shoes, cables and fitting kit.

The handbrake isn't holding well at all anymore. It's been adjusted at the back and at the lever, the lever/cables feel tight but the handbrake just isn't holding the car well at all.

I havent changed the adjusters and struts because other than muck from 16 years of driving they seemed to be ok. I also didn't change the discs...but if the handbrake had been sticking on for some time could there be uneven wear/warping inside the drum? I cleaned the inside of them with emery paper to remove surface rust and they seemed ok but...there's double in my mind...any thoughts?
