Handbrake always held well with old discs fitted but unfortunately they were warped and the pads were not meeting with a lot of the disc.
After replacing the discs and pads my handbrake is now pants.
I adjusted it by pulling handbrake on 2 notches and then adjusting til the pads were gripping the disc - which I how I remember doing previously on my Carlton with a similar system.
Is it just the new shoes need beeding to the new liners in the discs? Should I have fitted new shoes - even though they had plenty of meat on them?
Any help would be greatly appreciated - my drive is far from flat and the handbrake would not hold the car on it.
