Question

I have fitted new brake shoes to the rear of my 1999 Ford Fiesta Zetec but the handbrake will not hold the car on a hill. How do I adjust the handbrake, there is no information in my manual. Many Thanks, Jeanette Hall.


Answer

the hand brake should be disconected at the lever, and the brakes should be checked to make sure the self adjusters are working correctly then adjust the shoes manualy, refit the drums and apply the foot brake several times this will set up the brakes then refit the handbrake cable and adjsut up to the correct setting
