Re: EF Handbrake Question
In order to adjust the handbrake, you need to remove the rear wheels, remove the rear calipers, and remove the rear disc rotors. This will then expose a brake shoe type of assembly, this is the handbrake brake shoe. You will see an adjuster assembly consisting of a knurled wheel to the left of the brake shoe, this is used to adjust the hand brake.
WARNING WARNING WARNING.... be VERY carefull that you do not adjust the handbrake shoe too tightly, as you need to replace the brake disc every now and then to check the adjustment, and, if the handbrake shoe is adjusted too tightly, you will NEVER get the disc rotor off to make any further adjustments, and if it's too toight, you aint going nowhere! Make sure the handbrake shoe is central as you replace the disc rotor to check the adjustment, as an offset handbrake shoe will give a false "reading".
It really doesn't take a long time, it is just fiddly. All in all, a crappy idea.
