Assuming this is the same as a UK astra,remove the centre console and gaiter from around the handbrake lever until you see the adjuster nut.Jack up the rear so the wheels are free.Let the adjustment right off the handbrake.Press the footbrake five or six times to ensure the drums are fully adjusted,then pull the handbrake on/off five times.Same if you have rear discs.Ensure the rear wheels rotate freely.Then pull the handbrake on three clicks,adjust the cable until the rear wheels are hard to turn(not locked up).Handbrake off and ensure wheels still free.Rear wheels should be fully braked with four or five clicks.

How do you adjust handbrake on a Peugeot 106?

Take off the centre section of the exhaust and the heat shield and behind them you will see the handbrake cable, were the cable goes from two into one there is an adjustment nut to tighten it. Think its 13MM. turn it towards the front of the car to tighten the handbrake. If you have rear drum brakes you could also adjust the handbrake by pushing the shoes out a few clicks but that involves opening the drums and is more complicated.

If it has rear drum brakes, it's under the car, where the handbrake cable emerges from inside the car. If it has rear disk brakes, there is addition adjustment inside the rear disks on the handbrake shoe mechanism. This adjustment should be carried out before attempting to adjust the cable.

Handbrake diagram for a Nissan Micra?

I don't have a diagram, but ..... Generally there are cables to the shoes or calipers, these cables go up beneath the vehicle as two separate cables, and behind the exhaust heat shield. Once in the vehicle, they join into one with a separate part they both connect to. A 10mm nut then secures the cable to the handbrake. This nut can be loosened and tightened to adjust the HANDBRAKE AT THE LEVER NOT THE FOOTBRAKE. To properly adjust the footbrake efficiency, completely loosen the nut so it has no effect on the rear brakes, remove the wheel, remove the drum, and adjust the shoes so you can just turn the drum. Refit all and adjust cable to 5-8 clicks.


How do you adjust the rear brakes on a peugot 106?

Release the handbrake, pump the brake pedal a few times to settle the brakes, then apply and release the handbrake a few times. The rear brakes are self adjusting so be careful not to over do it or you will end up locking the your drums. If this does not work, then you need to get the tools out. Jack the rear of the car up, use axle stands for safety. Slacken off the handbrake cable adjuster nut, lift handbrake lever up 4 clicks, tighten handbrake cable adjuster nut until it takes up the slack, check rear drums rotate freely, job done.


How do you adjust the BA falcon handbrake rear wheel adjustment not the cable adjuster under the car?

make sure the cable adjustment is all the way off before you adjust the shoes which are inboard the rear rotor, there are specs for these but if you remove the tin cover at the rear of the shoe adjuster you can then poke a screwdriver or small brake adjuster in there an adjust till you cannot move the wheel, that will centre the h/brake shoes then back the adjuster off till the wheel spins free, then re/adjust your cable last ,,if you adjust your cable first you will only be adjusting one shoe not both ,,hope this does the job,, mick
