Hi Guys,

Quick query on this (I know I have revived a very old thread! but it will be helpful to me!)

1) Do you need to release the handbrake before tightening? or do you tighten with the handbrake partially applied?
2) Do you tighten only the centre nut, or do you tighten both the outside nuts, or only the outside nuts?

Appreciate the confirmations you may offer!

Thanks

Tighten with the brake released. Either leave the car in gear or chock a wheel when you do this or you might go on an unplanned drive! Dont over tighten or you will have the park brake slightly on permanatly and that would be bad. :0)

Thanks for the replies, thats one part sorted.

Question is how much tightening will I need to do?

My handbrake clicks fully at 7-8 clicks! so I dont know how many turns that will correspond to of the nut?

Plus do you tighten more than just the centre nut?

I am going to pop out to the car now and see if I am missing anything!

Thanks

Alittle bit extra

The number of 'clicks' on the handbrake is qouted in the owners manual. If I remember correctly, it is 5 to 7 clicks, but would stand correctly. 1 click will mean your brakes are dragging and they will get hotter than normal.
A suggestion, so that you don't do the same stupid thing that I did. Tie some string round the spanner (sprocket key) then round your wrist and then when your fingers go dead and you drop it down the hole, you can pull it back out again. Aah! hindsight is a wonderfull thing.

My brakes do not drag. The Park brake was adjusted and set by the dealer i got the car from new. You can feel it take up the slack and become tight just as it gets to the first notch. If i pull it tight or if im on an incline it will go to the second notch but for normal parking on the flat then its fine on the first notch. There is a lot of travel before the first notch so im happy its adjusted fine.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I might get round to doing this over the next couple of days. My only other question is this:

How do you know when you should not adjust the slack with this method, and when should be the time that the dealer completes the job? i.e. if you have to turn the nut by one full rotation (360 degrees) should it be undone and then taken to the dealer?

Apologies AyJay. My facelift SW brake starts clicking early on in its travel. I presumed the whole range was the same. The only car I've ever driven that didn't click from the start was a hired renault, just after they introduced pushing the complete plipper into a slot and pressing a 'GO' button. Everything about that car worried me, especially when I worked out that you had to press the 'GO' button to make it switch off.
