Re: ED handbrake adjustment?

theres an adjuster underneath about 1/2 way along the car on the drivers side, you'll see a linkage pulled back by a spring, Do up the nut (12mm) and you should be right.
You should be able to reach without jacking the car up..

Re: ED handbrake adjustment?

You shouldnt have to adjust the handbrake when you change the pads.
Your front cable may be stretched.

Get a new one, not a second hand one. New one should only be around $40 mark! The manual gives a good description of how to adjust them up.
