Re: Clio - Handbreak Loose?

ive never done a clio handbrake but they are easy to tighten up

inside the car, remove the plastic handbrake surround and there might be the adjuster nuts under there at the back of the handbrake lever
or you might have to go under the car and just follow the handbrake cables from the back till you get near the handbrake where you'll find the adjusting nut

someone will be on here soon and be able to tell you specifically where the nut/s is

its not hard to do tho mate!

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.

HTH

Re: Clio - Handbreak Loose?

On conventional cars, the adjuster is where the lever meets the hinged mounting point on the transmission tunnel.

My only Renault (a Vel Satis), had an electronic parking brake which had a manual over-ride on the dash itself.

I'm sure someone will be along to advise further.
