APE handbrake adjustment
« on: January 25, 2015, 12:04:01 PM »
Hi Folks

After asking the above question on many sister sites I finally got an answer so I will post the How to here.


1. If you have an armrest you will need to remove the front plastic cover on the rest.
2. Remove the three nuts holding it down, there's a connector in there I don't know for (yet).
3. With nuts removed lift the armrest up and clear.
4. The trim left needs to be squeezed at both sides to release it, then pull it up and forward out of the way, I found it easier to sit in the back with both seats lifted and pushed forward.
5. You will see a foot plate, look towards the rear of this and shine a torch in.
6. Hopefully you will then see a long nut with the cables running up both sides of the mechanism.
7. Fit a long handled 10 mm spanner in and adjust, do test and adjust remembering that we have a hill holder.
8. Refitting is the reverse of the above.

I hope this helps others.
