    Question Tightening hand-brake?

    Might sound like n00b kinda question but...

    My hand brake goes up to about 6 clicks, but does not hold properly (i.e. on a steep hill).

    To tighten it, is it as simple as taking the gaiter off and tightening a bolt, or will I need a new cable. If so, is it difficult to do or expensive?

    Cheers

    adjust it on the rear brakes mate, otherwise when you go for your mot it will prob fail to be honest. If you adjust from behind the gator then your only taking up the slack on the cable.
    orange is the way forward
