Hi guys - im having a similar problem with my 2.0 gtv at the minute - the handvbrake doesnt seem to even hold the car (well it does when standing but wouldnt like to accend everest and stop on the way)
is the4 only answer replacing rubbers and cables or is it possible to tighten them?? where do you tighten it??
any advice will save my MOT fail - 25% efficiency at the mo on the hand brake test just wont cut it.
Hi trying to undo the adjuster which is inside the handbrake lever aperture 13mm nut becarefull not to undo to much as it will come off the threaded bar take the GTV out on road and really work the brakes then try adjusting the cable again it normally stops been a good handbrake if cable is to tight and this stops the self adjusting calipers from working leave a little slack on the cable this alloys self adjustment to work allow 4-7 notches on ratchet, ie if not working could be calipers not working on internal ratched, good luck!
