Re: How to Remove Interior Handbrake Cover to Adjust Cable?
If there is a wear lip on the outer edge of the drum it may be difficult to get the adjusters up to their maximum amount. I usually take my small angle grinder with a well worn grinding disc and grind the outer lip off leaving a small chamfer. Adjust the adjuster by hand replace the drum - depress the foot brake 4 or 5 times - yank the handbrake on and of 2 or 3 times. This action centralises the shoes usually allowing you to get just that bit more adjustment.
