    I was just wondering if anyone knows how to get over the automatic tensioner for the handbrake? I've just put new calipers and discs on the rear, and spent ages and ages bleeding the brakes, and now I can pull the handbrake up about 25-30cm to stop the car rolling sometimes, whereas before it would only need to go up about 5 to 10 cm. Any help would be appreciated as I've tried almost everything at the moment, event rying to force the cable back :think:
