Adjust handbrake 2004

Hi
I have failed the MOT because the handbrake could not give a de-acc of 1,8 m/s^2.
The reason is of cause that i am not using the handbrake..

The question:
Can i adjust the cable length? The handle goes to the top now.
Can I adjust the shoes in one of the treed holes like on a x5?

Hope you can help me!!

Thanks

It was as on the X5, adjust true a tread hole..:-)
But i think it is time for new disks.. It is much better now, but not great!!

The cable length is not adjustable, or should i say.. I can not find a way to do it..

Correct me if i am wrong!!

Yes, you can adjust the cable length, just pull the leather boot attached to the parking brake handle off and you will see the adjustment bolts.
You can can also adjust the shoes through one of the holes in the rear brake disc.

Can not find the cable adjustment screw

I can not se any adjustment. Will one of you look in your car. It takes 5 sek to take of the parking brake sleeve, and look under need..
The system looks very complicated, and mayby selv adjustable, but have anyone tried it..
