Re: Clio - Handbreak Loose?
Hi Joord, and welcome.
I think you are discovering what many of us who have trodden this path before - which is; exuberant driving comes at a cost...
I'm fairly sure most if not all non-electronic parking brakes can be adjusted, however, you may first have to remove any covers/shielding where the handbrake itself hinges into.
Adjustment should only take place when the handbrake isn't being used, and it should mention in the handbook how many 'clicks' it should take to engage the handbrake.
This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
Currently in VelSatisfied's garage:
