    Handbrake adjustment

    Hi all, recently took my car (98/A8)for its mot and although it passed, the examiner said the nearside rear handbrake operation was low although the drivers side was ok . Does anyone know how to adjust this before i start stripping bits off. Many thanks in advance. wimbledonjohn

    handbrake adjustment

    Thanks for the reply.I cant understand why you had to remove the exhaust though. Was it hard to turn the adjustment nut (underneath the heat shield). This was quite easy to adjust on mine, although the spring that returns the cable on the caliper was frozen so i soaked it with wd40, moved it to and fro then soaked it again and left it overnight. john
