Post Fiat 500L MPW Handbrake

I have an Fiat 500L MPW 2015 plate and the handbrake needs adjusting, the car has discs all the way around and I am fairly mechanically minded, just need to understand, is the adjuster underneath the car, or at the bottom of the handbrake level, which means I have to remove centre console etc?

Thank in advance

Re: Fiat 500L MPW Handbrake

Hi,

can't help you directly but you might want to ask that on the U.S. forum, where someone posted a DIY on changing the brake pads. If you answer on that thread, that guy might know the answer.

The screw to adjust handbrake is located under the rear cup holder. There are no screws to take it off, just plastic locks. Than use M10 wrench .

@tdq - you advice worked perfectly, I eventually got round to adjusting the handbrake and as you say, adjuster is under rear cup holder and a 10mm socket was need to adjust

Thanks
