Tightening and adjusting the handbrake cable is pretty simple and can be done using minimal tools, like a Phillips screwdriver, 10mm wrench and 10mm socket ratchet. Here are the steps:
  • Remove the two screws on the sides of the central console part surrounding the handbrake lever
  • Remove the screws inside the central armrest storage
  • Take out the whole central console part and don’t forget to unplug the cables attached to it
  • Locate the handbrake adjustment nuts according to the video
  • Use the wrench and ratchet to open the locking nut
  • Tighten the adjustment nut and test the lever to click five times when you pull it up
  • Tighten the locking nut back and put everything back together.
