Disco 1 handbrake adjustment

Neighbour needs to adjust his handbrake but there isn't an adjuster on the
brake like my 90 so where is it or how do you adjust the cable?

I I remember right it has a hole in the drum that you line up
with the adjuaster, which you click with a screwdriver through the
hole. However, I could be making that up.....

Think you might be Richard



There is a bolt head at the very bottom of the handbrake back plate ( in
a recess) either 17 mm or 19 mm. this is the adjuster.

Good luck

Thanks for that, I've also found out that the cable slack is adjusted from
inside the vehicle by removing the handbrake cover and the window switch
plate from the central consul, which allows you to turn the plastic nut
adjuster the cable runs through just below the actual handbrake handle.
Problem solved (until he tries to do it later) :-)

Why on earth did they make such a simple and necessary job so difficult.
Done now though. Thanks.
