Re: Espace III Brakes

Glad you got it sorted.

Ideally you should re-adjust after the new linings have got a chance of bedding in - you will be surprised the difference it can make.

Theoretically you are supposed to release the handbrake adjustment - re-adjust the adjusters inside the drums - then tighten up the handbrake cable until both wheels are locked - then release the cable adjustment until both wheels run free.
