    To be honest I've no idea, but I just thought I heard that it self tightened as the pads or whatever wore down. Maybe check in the B6 section?

    hi

    100% handbrake is self adjusting so you cannot / should not do it yourself.
    if your handbrake does not hold your car then possibly your pads/disks are worn - you should have a warning on your dash though
    tave you looked at your disks ? is there a lip on the inside edge ?
    pads - can you see any pad when you look at them ??
