Re: Handbrake adjustment

Hi !

You can do this form inside, remove the central part where handbrake is, you have to adjust a nut in the rear to set tension as you wish.

I took a picture here :

Re: Handbrake adjustment

You welcome. I think the armrest is only screwed on the part you have to lift, so it should be the same manner.

To be more precise, you just have to lift the central part to be able to reach the nut to adjust handbrake, no need to remove all.
