Adjustment of handbrake

The handbrake on my Ceed SW needs to be adjusted.
Where can I get acess to the (I assume) adjustment nut, from the inside at the brake lever, or underneath the car at the lever, or elsewhere?

Thanks a lot, actually I tried to find an old post, I was pretty sure I wasn´t the first one needing to adjust the brake.

Maybe only 5 mins at the dealer, but 1,5 hours drive.....

lol sorry came here to ask same question as just become owner of a ProCeed


So Stoff you still don't know 'how to' then as you got dealer to do it.

Sadly the dealers near us, and we have two are pathetic, not only would they charge they would fail to do it correctly....

Been there twice and to be honest the so called mechanic is incompetent.


Glad the member put the link up thanks for that.....Appreciate it....

I would prefer to do it myself then I know it was done properly and the best it could be..

Hello Gunnar S
As I remember I took the time to answer this question after taking up the handbrake on my older ProCeed. It should be there to find in the old posts if you wish to trawl for it. Both adjusting at the wheels or from inside the car are easy,but if adjusting inside the car a very long reach spanner is a great help. I personally welded an extension onto a suitable spanner, but still found taking up the slack at the wheels easier. Some form of ratchet spanner would have been very handy due to the confined space. Adjustment on the pro ceed was found inside the glove box just behind the gear lever. I should imagine it's the same on your car.
