handbrake adjustment mk 1 172

  Lots of Alfas
Take the rear plastic cover off the handbrake, see if it has an adjuster nut on the lever (only some had these). If not jack the car up on stands on one side. Take off the centre heat shield above the centre section right in the middle of the car, tighten the nut on the handbrake cable clockwise with a half inch (iirc) sized long socket until your happy with it.
