    Default 306 XSi hand brake rear disk adjustment

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me how to adjust the handbrake after changing disk brake pads?

    This problem is driving me crazy, when I pull handbrake left wheel is fixed but right one is not! I have replaced both rear disks and disk pads but with no change, right brake caliper was overhauled because hand brake mechanism was seized in caliper body. Now it is moving but it is not pushing brake piston! I already try to tight brake cable but no improvement. Brake works when i press pedal but with lever only one wheel.
    Does anyone knows what should I do or try?
    And I have to mention that my registration is expired so I can't take chance to drive it to authorized mechanic.

    the adjustment if fully automatic.
    If the mechanism is moving but the park brake dose not apply on that wheel then there is still an internal problem inside the calliper.
    sorry can't give you any good news.

    I don't have any more ideas for this problem what could be wrong inside caliper everything is new except caliper piston!
    Could it be it? Or maybe it's handbrake cable?
