Handbrake Cable

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have never had mind adjusted and a mate said that if it pulls up with more than 5 clicks its not tight enough!!!! :o

If this is true is it a hard job to do?? If so how much would i be looking for a garage to do it!??!?

Cheers,

Matt

someone been doing too many handbrake turns eh ;)

i dunno dev, i think uk handbrakes have to be made so, not to sound stupid but like they say, 3 clicks is about right, 6 and over and you need to adjust it badly...i can get away with 2 clicks on the cynos, the paseo after doing the autotest, about 4 / 5, but the cars in saudi arabia need loooooooooads, but the roads are pretty much flat there...the patrol is like 8 / 9 clicks

usually there is an adjustment in the the handle .. but sometime you need to get under the car and adjust the cable lengths ..
