2008 S80 Parking Brake Cable Adustment

Post by dacree » Mon Jul 29, 2019 5:04 pm

Hi all. First post here.

I have a 2008 S80 with a weak parking brake (doesn't hold the car while in gear). Is there a cable adjustment where I can tighten or loosen the cable before I try to adjust the pads?

You can see if any of the diagrams fit your system? The previous body style had an adjustment at the parking brake lever inside the center console.
