    thanks all
    and yes they are kind of tight then u finish work (you cant pull cable with hands). and i would adjust on a flat surface before taking on the hill. more safe and easier

    did you thump the drums with a big hammer between tightning the adjudters? this is neccessary to seat the shoes. they may be tight as hell after adjustment but after a wack with the belfast spanner they will loosen up. hope you grt it sorted!

    I have an E61 520d and have just tried the hand brake whilst going at walking pace and it has adjusted its self to two clicks. Brill this was something I never new about and worked perfect on my car. Thanks for the info and I hope your problems sort them selves out good luck.

    nealp & bigedd9990's advice is much appreciated.

    When I went to adjust the screw in the hole of the brake disc it turned out to be an allen screw (?? is that correct ??)

    Also it was loose, looks as if the last person to repair my handbrake for me, had loosened if off too much ! The (allen screw headed) screw is loose inside the disc !

    If I remove the calipers, and the single nut in the middle of the brake disc will I be able to re-insert/re-assemble this adjustment screw ?

    The central nut is peined over on either side to avoid it coming loose/off vibrationally, can it be removed/re-used ok or do I need a new one upon re-assembly !

    Help !
