Parking Brake Cable Adjustment -

Hand Brake — Fix and Adjust DIY — V70 1998

Hand brake is not really working. When I got the car, it was not working at all. So I opened the rear brakes, detached the discs, the hand brake pads were gone. Ordered new ones, replaced. Adjusted the “spacers” (?) inside the disks and the screw behind the hand-brake lever in passenger cabin. Used the car for few months. Did not see a real improvement. So I thought the cables are bad and replaced those. Still no improvement.
