Welcome to Matthew's Volvo Site.

These are the VADIS instructions for the manually adjusted brake. I haven't done this job myself but reading the instructions I think there may be a typo error at the second "Screw the socket clockwise". The arrow in the diagram shows anti-clockwise which seems to make more sense.

If your car has the self-adjustment which needs resetting post back.
