Re: how to tighten the handbrake?

Yes, just adding to this - the adjuster if inside the car will be behind the handbrake (under the plastic console) and the cable from the handbrake going to the middle of a plate (two other cables coming off of this bracket going to wheels) with a threaded bar and a nut (this is where to tighten).
or if underneath car it will be a visivle cable set up (centeral of the car behind the handbrake somewhere) - possibly underneath the heat sheild of exhaust.
Hope this helps, Scott.
