Handbrake adjustment done

My thanks to forum member Jugs for providing the basic instructions on how to do this a couple of weeks ago. Before this adjustment i could only get one very tight click when applying the handbrake. Now i can easily get 3-4 clicks.

First i removed the rubber gator by pulling it out from underneath the centre console and turning it inside out. Then slowly pulling it all off the handbrake lever. It takes a couple of minutes of pushing and pulling but slowly it comes off. Perhaps adding a touch of baby oil to the plastic part of the handbrake lever would make this even easier.

Above is an image with the gator off and lever exposed.

This pic shows the adjustment nut. I loosened this by about 2 full turns.

I just thought i would share this information for anyone else who might experience the same problem.
