    E-brake adjustment?

    Anyone know how I can adjust the cable for the hand brake? My rear pads are squealing while driving, and I can get it to stop only if I grab the handbrake for a split second or two. I know it isn't the pads or discs, as I changed them not 6 months ago.

    Anyone got a schematic or something?

    MY GUES WOULD be to follow the cable under the car going to the rear axle there should be a nut to a spring if i remember correctly

    You can adjust it from in the cabin as well. Unsnap the e-brake boot and you'll see the end of the cable, as well as a stud and nut.
